Car crashes are unexpected, disorienting, and potentially very damaging and lethal. In the heat of the moment, it's easy to panic about what you should do after an accident. The more you understand why you should and shouldn't do certain things after a car accident, the more rationally you will be able to handle that situation if it comes up.
Now is the time of year when deer are on the run throughout the country. A recent article published in the Republican Herald points out this is because deer mate from October through December, bringing the animals boldly out of the woods and onto more roadways. Consequently, most deer-related vehicle crashes occur during this time, especially in November.
Western Pennsylvania has some of the best deer hunting in the country and is a hotbed for all kinds of game. This means that there will be nearly a million hunters out in the woods sitting in deer stands or camping out in duck blinds once again during the 2016 hunting season. Whether going after a trophy buck, a big turkey or a flock of ducks, every hunter knows that hunter safety and caution need to be the highest priority -- just this week, a Utah sheriff was shot in the hand while hunting geese near Soda Springs, Idaho. The sheriff obviously had a lot of experience around guns, yet he was still shot.
