How to Buy a Good Quality Deer Warning Whistle

Good Quality Deer Warning Whistle

While you might think that other drivers and obstacles in the road are the largest threats to your safety and that of your passengers, the fact remains that wildlife must also be considered. Deer are probably the most worrisome animals – even a relatively small deer can completely total your car in an accident. What’s more, they can be encountered almost anywhere, not just in rural areas. A deer warning whistle can provide you with at least some additional protection.

When buying a quality deer warning whistle, you’ll want to consider a couple of different factors, including the number of whistles sold in the package, the design of the whistle, the output amount and more. Take the following into consideration while searching for a deer warning whistle:

  • Number of Whistles: Never buy just one deer warning whistle. You should have at least two, but four is even better. The more whistles included, the more sound output is created, increasing the chances that deer will hear the sound and stop before they walk out in front of your car.

  • Speed of Sound Production: Deer warning whistles work when air moves through the whistle. Obviously, your car has to be moving for this to happen. Some whistles only work optimally at high speeds. Choose a model that starts working at 35 mph for better protection in all driving situations.

  • Range: How far does the whistle’s sound reach? Obviously, the farther it reaches, the better. Opt for a model with a least a quarter-mile range.

  • Size: Deer whistles come in several different sizes, and they all mount to the outside of your car. Consider the amount of space on your front bumper, and then choose a whistle that fits.

  • Detachable: Like your windshield and grille, deer whistles are exposed to dirt, dust, pollen and bugs. Choose a model that can be easily detached from the mount so you can clean them.

Deer whistles provide an added layer of protection, but you should always remain alert to the threat posed by wildlife even with these installed.
