Bowhunters Cut Deer/Vehicle Collisions
By Dave Hurteau
From Iowa’s The Gazette:
In 2004, before the city of Cedar Rapids began the bowhunt, there were 453 deer-vehicle crashes.
In 2008, [there were] 250 . . . .
"In my opinion, bowhunters have made an impact in the last three years," [an official] said.
"The number (of deer-vehicle crashes in the city) has reduced every year since the hunt started."
