In Oregon one out of 256 drivers reported hitting a deer last year, given there are 3.1 million licensed drivers in Oregon that equals a lot of deer.
12,109 would be close estimation. Almost equal to hunter harvest for Mule deer for the last year of data we have available. I bet that rate of collisions was far higher years ago.
