This is peak deer season in Ohio, Indiana, and Kentucky, and no doubt you have seen dead deer laying on the side of the highway at some point. One Warren County, Ohio man, whose wife was in an accident with a deer, is wondering if deer whistles might prevent it from happening again. Jim McHugh says his wife recently hit a deer, causing more than $12,000 damage to her car. "A deer came out nowhere, hit the front of her Lexus," he said. "One minute she was driving, the next there was a deer looking at her through the windshield." So he decided to pick up a set of deer whistles, sold at hardware and auto parts stores for as little as $10 a pair.
