West Virginia. Odds of hitting a deer: 1 in 41. First place last year, first place this year. Way to go.
Montana. Odds: 1 in 58. Last year's rank: #3. Sure, there's a lot of empty space in Montana. But you can drive fast and there are also a lot of deer.
Pennsylvania. Odds: 1 in 67. Last year's rank: #4. The odds of hitting a deer have gone up 5.6 percent since last year. What's up? I know some awesome hunters from Pa.
Iowa. Odds: 1 in 68. Last year's rank: #3. Iowa's collision rate has held steady, which is why it dropped one slot. I bet those big deer mean the average bill there is well over $4,000.
South Dakota. Odds: 1 in 70. Last year's rank: #5. The state has been fifth for three years running, even as the chance of hitting a deer has risen 4.3 percent. Change comes slowly to the Midwest, I guess.
Wisconsin. Odds: 1 in 77. Last year's rank: #6. Same deal here. There were 20,000 collisions in 2015, accounting for more than 16% of all vehicle accidents.
Minnesota. Odds: 1 in 80. Last year's rank: #7. Okay, okay. I get it. It's the Midwest.
