On our vacation through southwest US last summer, my wife commented that "I have seen more deer on this trip than previously in my entire life", and then she added, "and several of them were not even dead"
I have hit a couple deer in the past with numerous near misses. You have to be ever watchful. I find that dawn and dusk seem to be the times when deer are travelling the roads the most (maybe travelling between home and the office?).
