Iowa drivers' chances of hitting deer have dropped Oct. 2, 2013

DES MOINES - New data show Iowa remains among the top states for drivers' chances of striking a deer, but the likelihood has dropped.

State Farm Insurance said in rankings released Monday that Iowa ranks No. 3 behind West Virginia and Montana.

The Iowa chances have dropped to a 1-in-73 chance of a collision within the next year. That's down from the 1-in-67 odds last year.

Iowa Natural Resources Department spokesman Kevin Baskins says the reduction reflects a decline in the state deer population. The department says that in 2004, Iowa had an estimated 600,000 deer. That's dropped to an estimated 350,000.

State Farm's projections are based on licensed driver counts from the federal government and State Farm's claims data.
