Re: Deer FAQs

>Eh?  Excellent advice throughout, but deer whistles?

I was going purely on anecdotal evidence from users.  I haven't seen any
studies.  It may be that they aren't effective, but I know that, while deer
in the woods may be careful, I've all too often seen deer along side the
road, unaffected by 70+ mph traffic on the expressway (LOTS of traffic,
too).  I would guess that the use of the whistle would be to provide
something that is actually aggrevating (perhaps painful; I'm not sure),
rather than just noisy.

So, YMMV.  :-)  I'd like to see some stats for sure.
