First of all my dogs are crated when they travel with me 99.9% of the time. Well, today I took Sage along because she was sitting at the door waiting to go to work with me...poor decision as I have 2 kennels borrowed out and a 3rd stored in my garage that wasn't ready to go...yes I still took Sage and I had her leash belted into the back seat. About 10 minutes into our trip 4 deer came out of nowhere...1 to my left, one to my right and 2 directly in front of me:(  I gently slammed on the brakes as I wasn't sure how icy it was and luckily the deer finally went in the ditch BUT not before Sage ended up on the floor. This could have been much worse if I had hit one but I guess luck was on my side and Sage was fine...just a reminder of how important crates or dog restraints are to keep our 4 legged ones safe:)

My pup's name is Mao'er. It means the furry kid in Chinese.

Still not sure if the this deer whistle would help...part of the problem around here is that during crop time and hunting...no deer is going to stop as they just run scared. Luckily I have about 6 miles on this road and rarely ever see any deer elsewhere.

My husband had them mounted on his truck after hitting a deer and doing over $5000 worth of damage to his truck, a friend also had them after an encounter with a deer.  Neither has had a run in with one since but is it because of the warning system or just lucky.

Some various sites are contradictive with respect to stating some "studies" on the matter.   It might be worth looking into and finding some review sites for these products to see if it would prevent anything.

I'd figure as long as it's paralelle to the ground and can get the most air intake it would work it fine.

I'm wondering if anyone mounted it on the roof or even side panels, as long as their not tilted up or downward.

It was mounted on both ends of the front bumper.  We now have a Town and Country mini-van that has no bumper and are trying to figure out what to do.  My husband is looking into it.

Anna..."thanks" where do you mount it???? I have a Prius, just wondering if it would work on there????? What do you think???

Jane, I had put these on the front of my Suburban and had them there for 20 years.  Can't say for sure that they worked, but in 20 yrs. we never had an incident.  They are cheap enough, may be worth a try...

Glad to hear.   Wally was dropped on the floor as well one time for a harsh break.

He didn't get hurt but just startled.   Most of our TransCanada Highway here in NB is fenced for wildlife but a few sections aren't.   The warm thawing weather lately has brought out a large number of deers lining the fields alongside the highway.    Something to keep in mind.
