What that is based on certainly is not just simply number of deer and number of drivers.

A driver had a 1 in 169 chance of striking a deer last year, according to State Farm, the nation’s largest car insurance company. In 11 states, the odds were better than 1 in 100.Below is a projection of deer collisions by state for the year ending June 30, 2014 — the last year the data was available for at press time — estimated by State Farm, and a ranking of odds that considers the number of licensed drivers in each state.
