Deer collision season opens: Are you ready?

If you live in West Virginia, Montana, Iowa, South Dakota or Pennsylvania, better make sure you’ve got $3,414 lying around.

That’s the damage a typical deer-car collision causes, State Farm says, and those are the five states where you’re most likely to hit a deer in the next year.

The company’s annual update on deer collisions comes as peak season for conflict between car and mammal approaches: November is the worst month for collisions, with October and December right behind. The odds of a licensed driver hitting a deer in West Virginia over the next 12 months, State Farm says, are a staggering 1 in 41. The runners up:

Montana: 1 in 65
Iowa: 1 in 73
South Dakota: 1 in 75
Pennsylvania: 1 in 77
