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.
