Deer-related vehicle crashes are a serious traffic safety hazard in the state of North Carolina, and number of DVCs spikes during hunting seasons. This paper provides an econometric analysis of the relationship between hunting activities and deer-related vehicle crashes during hunting season from year 2009 to 2016. Increases in the deer harvest increases the frequency of DVCs during hunting season. The buck population has a bigger impact on DVCs than the doe population. Harvesting deer on private lands has a smaller effect on DVC than harvesting on public hunting lands.
