Tonight your product kept me from hitting a deer, once again. I decided to finally write to tell you about it!
I have lived in the country with my mom for about 10 years now. Before we purchased a deer whistle we were in 3 head-on accidents with large bucks (police didn't know how we managed to live) and several near misses. You know..the kind where you have to pull off on the side of the rode because you are shaking from fear? The last accident messed up my mom pretty bad and she became an extremely fearful driver. She finally found your website and ordered a deer whistle. For the past 4 years she has driven without incident and she is confident again. When the time came for me to get my first car, 2 years ago, I had a deer whistle all wrapped up for me in a near little bow on my front seat. I have never felt so safe. Living in the country, I know deer… every deer that hears me coming runs right back in the woods. I also know beyond the shadow of a doubt that your product works and has saved many lives. Not only are the deer safe from a brutal death, I am safe too…all the cars behind and in the lanes ahead of me are safe as well. Thank you for making the world a better place!

I live in Nova Scotia, Canada and about three years ago I had struck three deer; two with my 1991 VW Golf and wrote if off once and one with my 1978 Pontiac LeMans. I had seen deer whistles in dollar stores, etc. but researched to see if there was a company that carried a deer whistle that was actually tested. Well I came up with Living products out of Colorado. All the tests were on their homepage and the whistle tested the most effective was the no. 9 deer whistle which is the one that they still sell. Subsequently, I have ordered them and have placed them on my vehicles plus my motorcycle I bought this past summer. We witnessed in broad daylight a deer running towards our car, it froze and ran back into the woods – a reaction that we gladly accepted with joy! We have had only one deer hit since I got the whistles and unfortunately the vehicle was not traveling at 35 mi/hr. It was near a major hotel, in close proximity to a field and a baby deer hit.
Thanks for carrying a deer whistle that works!!!! Great job!!!! I have given them to friends and as gifts!
Thanks so much!

This is one purchase that we never go without as we have been using this product for years now and we firmly believe that it has detoured may a deer in our path. Due to age and countless trips to the car wash, we lost two this year and now are replacing.
We not only use this product for our two vehicles but also included it in Xmas stockings a few years back for our children and immediate family members.
Thanks for a wonderful product!!!!!!

I was given what I believe was one of these Deer Whistles when I changed insurance companies as a welcome gift. I can also say that during the ruts and when deer are active here in central Kansas, I have experienced deer standing still, if not turning around and bolting back into the field they came from. If they are in front of me on the road they suddenly double in speed and I have seen them jump fences. I have recently lost mine and just took information to the insurance agent who is unable to find anymore and has not been able to find any for two years. I will gladly buy one at the single price cost as a sales person at a national chain told me it was likely better than what they sell in their stores. For sales associate to send a sale elsewhere speaks volumes!

I wanted to touch base with you regarding the deer whistles that we purchased from you earlier this year. We seem to be having great results since installing your product. We have had no animal strikes on our 600+ vehicles on the road.We have ordered several more new vehicles and would like to install the deer whistles on all.
On Tues. April 23, 2012 at 2:42 P.M.
I wanted to provide you with a few numbers from our accident files. Keep in mind we currently run over 575 tractors over the lower 48 States: 29 recorded hit strikes in 2011 4th Quarter 2011: 17 Deer strikes. Estimated damages $40,000+
After buying your whistles in mid-December the results have been evident: 1st Quarter 2012: 3 deer strikes. Estimated Damages $5,000 Of these three strikes in 2012, one truck did not have your product installed, and another was travelling under 35mph. This leaves one strike in nearly 4 months of operation. Not to mention this decline in numbers happened during the rut.
I am a firm believer that your product works and works well. The cost to outfit our fleet was easily cheaper than repairing damages from a single hard deer strike. I would estimate our savings in truck damage to be somewhere between $20,000 to $30,000 for the 1st quarter alone. I just thought you might like to see the differences we have seen since using your product.

I purchased several of these whistles and put one on my car and gave my family the rest. I have seen a big buck deer standing on the shoulder of the road looking at me and he did not move until I passed him. Another time there were three bunched together in the ditch that stood still until I passed them. I am so proud to own these Deer Whistles for I feel that those deer that I saw probably would have caused me another accident. I hit one before I started using your alerts and have great success with them since I put it on my car. I am getting a new car this week and will be placing another for more for more of your Deer Whistles. \ Thank you for a great product.

The other night I had the great misfortune of hitting an adult deer. I didn't see it at all. It slammed into the side of my car. It was a heartbreaking experience. The deer had to be put down and my car has about $3800 worth of damage. The good news is that my dealership has told me about the deer whistle and I have forwarded the information to many friends and family who are grateful to know about it. I do this in some small way to honor the deer, that it's death was not in vain. That a message can be sent out to help prevent the death of animals being struck and killed by vehicles not to mention the trauma, injury or death suffered by humans involved in these accidents.

I had the opportunity to hit a 1000 lb moose cow with my 2002 Mazda Tribute this past week. I was driving carefully and slowly, but there we were. As he helped me complete the paperwork, the trooper who responded to my call mentioned using a “moose whistle” on his vehicles. I’m aching, my car is totaled and the moose is dead. I think a $6.00 investment is a small one for a chance to prevent a repeat of this week! Count me in!

I cannot tell you how happy I was to find this product on–line. I received one of these exact whistles when I purchased my 2000 Dodge Stratus and it remained on the front of the car until I sold it last summer. I swore by that deer whistle and even though people laughed at me, I know it works.
I ordered two earlier and was happy to see it is the same whistle. I just ordered two more for Christmas gifts.

I bought my first deer whistle from you in 2005 after reading the research study on your site. We had just moved to a small town surrounded by extensive rural countryside. During the following two years I traveled to work through a deer-concentrated area, and I definitely noted the deer "alerting" to your whistle. Countless times I would see their eyes reflecting in my headlights as they looked directly at my car, giving me that extra morsel of time to slow down in case they ran across. They never did. Instead, they stood watchfully still as I passed by in my car. I saw your whistle save several very young spotted fawns during that time as two or three family members stood at attention and watched me pass. Once, a fawn clearly startled and did not cross in front of me, not even to follow its mother that had just crossed and stood waiting on the other side! To me that experience alone is 100% proof of the deer whistle's effectiveness.
Since 2008 we have lived in yet another rural, deer-populated area. Last summer I replaced a defective bumper, and my deer whistle was also removed along with it. I really didn't think much about it, expecting that I would order another one sometime when I got around to it. Interestingly, in mid January I hit a deer as I drove to work before sunrise (my first ever such accident), causing extensive damage to my car as well. Over and above my pity for the deer, beyond the awareness that I could easily have been injured or even killed, and far more painful than the $500 insurance deductible was the knowledge that -- beyond a shadow of doubt -- this accident was completely preventable. Needless to say, the experience made a huge impact (pun intended). From now on, each and every one of our cars will definitely be equipped with one of YOUR deer whistles!

This deer whistle really works. I was driving down the road and a shunk was on the run toward the road and stopped when my truck came in his path and ran back in the bush.

Thanks for providing this nice product. It has saved us AT LEAST five auto/deer collisions the past few years. I am buying a supply for our recent autos and some to give to some of our relatives and friends.

I have purchased these from you before but as we change vehicles, I want to keep using your product and give as gifts.
When I last purchased your product, I had installed them on two of our three vehicles and guess which one hit a deer? You guessed it.......the one without your deer whistle!

Love your product. I used it on my last trip to Tomahawk, WI. fall ride. I saw 5 deer and all stayed off road or ran off. Last year I did not have a deer whistle on my bike and unfortunately hit a deer causing about $ 5,800.00 Dollars damage. Luckily no one got hurt.
Thank you for your product.

We talked about getting this alert for a few years but just "never got around to it". Yesterday we kicked ourselves in our proverbial butts.
While enjoying a beautiful coastal ride through Nova Scotia on our motorcycles, a beautiful fawn jumped from the ditch right into the path of my husband's brand new motorcycle. Thankfully there was minimal damage to the bike but the fawn was not so lucky.
We are both animal lovers and it broke our hearts to remove this beautiful creature to the ditch. Her mum was pacing nearby, wondering what was delaying her infant.
Today I ordered us each a deer alert.

I felt I must write to say a very BIG THANK YOU for saving my life many times including tonight ! I am unfortunate enough to have to travel through a forest on the way to work which is heavily populated with deer, foxes and badgers etc and I am very pleased to say it seems to work on all of the fore mentioned animals! I will always recommend your product to all my friends and family and always have one on my car.

“I was an insurance agent for 20+ years and never had to pay a claim on a deer accident where the vehicle had deer whistles. I started buying yours by the box and offering them to my customers at my cost just to help reduce future losses. It worked. Once the word got out that I had them everyone came by to purchase them. I even had Pro-athletes stop by my office to buy them every time he traded vehicles. I highly recommend your deer whistles and have them on all of my family and my vehicles.

“I have had the whistle tested through our South African science and technology body and below are some of our findings. We have found that the Whistle is making a sound between 5500 and 5700 hertz. In "real-life" the whistle showed a reaction on wild animals (Which are more sensitive to strange sounds), but did not show any affect on domestic animals, like cows, goats and donkeys. Best Regards

“I work at a charming Inn/B&B in southern Vermont. I travel up Vermont Route 30N at 11 p.m. 5 nights per week. There are 10 farms with hundreds of acres of corn fields between my work and home. There are hundreds of deer that forage along side the road for that 20-mile stretch. I just ordered 2 of your whistles, one for me and one for my wife. I have hit a total of 11 deer in the past 5 years. She has hit 3 deer in the last 10 years. We have spent thousands of dollars in repairs to our automobiles. I don't know why I waited so long to buy your product. If you live in Vermont, your product is the first thing you should get when you buy a car. I am really lucky that the only damage has been to my vehicle, and I have not been hurt in an accident. Last night I hit a 200-pound buck while I was travelling at approximately 50 miles per hour. My car was totaled. I will be picking up another car at the dealership on Monday, and I will install your whistle as soon as it arrives in the mail. I will l let you know next year if I have hit any more deer.”

“I can't wait to receive the Deer Whistle I recently purchased for my husband. Two weeks ago, he was on his way home from work at 1:00 a.m. His only route is a highway with no street lights that pretty much runs through the desert. He was doing the speed limit of 65 mph, and with no advanced warning, a black cow walked onto the highway. My husband hit the cow doing 65 mph. He said there was literally no reaction time. Had the cow been 2 more feet onto the highway, it would've come straight up the hood into the windshield. I don't even like to think how this story would've ended had that happened. As it happened, my husband was very lucky that his 'only' injury was a facial laceration from the side view mirror hitting him in the cheek as it broke through the drivers window. His car is still in the body shop and has just under $8,000 damage. Since then, my husband gets the sweats and shakes every night when he drives home. He doesn't know I've ordered the Deer Whistle. I'm waiting until it arrives and I'll give it to him to put on his car when he gets it back, and hopefully, it will help ease 'some' of his anxiety on his drives home from work. I know I made the right decision in purchasing the Deer Whistle after having read other peoples’ reviews (that I will print for my husband to read).”

“Just wanted you to know that I put the "Deer Whistle" on the front bumper when I received it, and I'm very happy to say it works very well. I just got home this morning from a 6-hour trip and about an hour ago, I came around a curve and down a dip, and there were 2 deer standing on the side of the road looking like they were waiting for a bus. Scared the he!! out of me! Thank goodness they didn't move from that spot. Wouldn't have had any time at all to do anything but hit them. Thanks for a great product!”

“We have used the Living Products Deer Whistle for at least 6 years, and we have seen the amazing results as we drive by the deer as they stand along side of the road and wait for us to pass by. However I want to tell you of this last experience we had during a 587-mile trip.
Our day began approximately 2 a.m. in the morning, leaving that early so we would beat the rush hour traffic through the larger cities and to have an opportunity to rest a few hours before our meetings began. As usual, this is the time of year that the deer are out for mating season. As we travel along East bound 50 highway we witnessed several deer just waiting for us to pass. This gives us a total assurance that the Living Products are doing their job keeping us safe.
On our return trip home again we are traveling after dark about 9:30 p.m. traveling west bound on 36 highway as we topped the hill and began the level pavement was when we saw 3 large deer running from the east bound 2 lanes coming to our side of the highway.
My husband immediately began to say " Oh my God they are going to get us this time." I said "No stay firm they will stop—we have the whistles"
Just like an animated cartoon, they come across the 2 lanes of east bound traffic and across the median grassy area on to the west bound fast lane of traffic, just as if they put on their brakes. Their hoofs hit the pavement, and 2 of them got stopped in their tracks; however, the third one when he hit the pavement his back feet slid out from under him and as he continued to skid out of control right across the road in front of us, applying the brakes, he got to the edge of the road he stood up and not being able to swerve to the left because the other 2 deer were standing there we held the car straight and as the animated deer stood upright our front right fender hit his right hip.
We maintained control of the van and no one was injured. The deer continued running into the farmers field as he jumped the fence. While the other 2 stood waiting for us to move out of their way.
Thank you so very much Living Products because without the deer whistle on the van who knows how many accidents we could have encountered this trip.
I know that we would have hit all 3 of the deer. These accidents happen so fast you really don't realize how many lives your deer whistles truly save. Sometimes we don't realize the value of confidence and safety.”

“I started using your whistle a year ago, and since then, I have noticed that not only deer but most everything gets off the road, possum, racoon, even birds, as I approach. I am on a regional campaign to get people to try them. Your product is so inexpensive and effective that skeptics will try it. I don't care how many studies suggest they don't work, I KNOW they do and have avoided at least 6 deer collisions since I placed the whistle on my car. And so easy to install! I think insurance companies should offer discounts to those who have one, and businesses should use them on trucks and school buses as well.

“I would like to see one of your deer whistle on every vehicle in the United States. I have been trying to educate drivers to watch for wildlife both for the life of the animal and to prevent accidents and damage to the vehicles since 1972 when I began writing. True I have been a hunter all my life, but we hunters use the animal for meat, we don't leave it laying out along the road, where it serves no purpose. This whistle causes all animals not just deer to leave the roadway. It's only natural for animals to be on the roadways. The roadways are laid upon millions of animal trails, and the animals are following instincts bred in them; they have no reason to leave the trail and have no way of knowing their lives are in danger. They have no reasoning factor like we humans, well some of us. I am sending letters to animal organizations with information for them to contact your company to help save the lives of the animals in the roadway and prevent deadly accidents for the drivers of all private vehicles, motorcycles, and trucks.”

“Just want to add my thanks to the list of others. I was driving on a country road last night, going about 45 mph, when a deer came right to the edge of the road, looked in my direction and froze which gave me time to slow down and move away from the deer. I am convinced that if I did not have your whistle on the front of my truck, I would have hit that deer.”

“To whom it may concern: My name is Dr. James O'Rourke, and I live in Kansas City, Missouri. I recently attached a deer whistle on my car and experienced just how wonderful this product is. I was driving late at night on a country road when I noticed several deer coming to the edge of the road to cross. They literally stopped in their tracks and let my car pass. I am convinced had I not had the deer whistle on my car, they would have tried to cross in front of me. It would have been hazardous, as I was traveling at a speed that would not have allowed me to stop before reaching them. I want to thank the Livingston family for inventing this product. I believe it saved my car and possibly my body from serious injury.”

“We installed your deer whistles on our 2003 Corolla (practically invisible) and just the other night, 2 large deer came through the ditch and approached the road. We were about 100 feet away when we saw them. The first deer took off across the road. The second deer looked at our car, stopped at the edge of the road and then walked across in front of our car. We had plenty of time to slow down and avoid an expensive crash. That second deer heard something, and we can only attribute the deer whistle for giving us time to stop.”

“I have what the doctor calls traumatic amnesia, so I don't remember anything from the accident. However, the state patrol and other witnesses have filled me in. Friday, Dec 14, was a wet and foggy morning. As I was traveling down Center Hill Church Rd., a large running deer plowed into my car hitting the side panel behind the driver seat. This caused my car to go out of control, crossing the left lane, down an embankment, and slamming into a tree on 2 wheels. The tree actually made contact with my head and face! The car's roof was crushed down to the head rests in the front pinning me in. After the "jaws of life" peeled the car top back, it had been too foggy for the life flight helicopters to take off to transport me, so an ambulance took me to a hospital farther away that had a better trauma unit. I had sustained no injuries below my chest and no spine or neck trauma! I did have a concussion and severe bruising to the left side of my head and shoulders, fractured left acromion and separated ligaments of my left and right shoulders, cut tendons in my left index finger, and over 100 stitches to the left side of my face, neck, and arm. I survived and God is speedily healing me, but how I wish I had deer whistles on my car then like I do now!”

Last Friday night, about 2:30 am, driving my pickup (equipped with your whistle), coming home from the Giants game, the longest 9 inning game in Major League history, 2 deer (in 2 separate occasions) stopped completely, and as I slowed, they walked off the road. I recently purchased a new Jeep. Saturday morning I thought, why hadn't my insurance agent given me a new whistle for my jeep. A little PO'ed. I was going to give her a mellow piece of my mind and get a whistle for my new jeep. Well on my way to work, yep, I hit a deer, slowly thank god and minimal damage to my 1,100-mile Jeep. Well I got one on there now, and she gave me 5 extra. So I gave a few to my neighbors and friends. Your product seems to work great. Didn't see any on the way to work today, but on the radio, I heard 2 separate incidents where deer had been hit.”

“I recently moved to a rural area from the city. I was given a deer whistle by my new insurance agent. I drive home after dark every night on a road in an area of heavy deer population. I see a deer about every third night. After installing the deer whistle, each time I saw a deer, it stopped moving as I approached. I will admit that I was skeptical at first, but I can honestly say that it appears the deer whistle works exactly like the report you list on this website. Now I'll have a deer whistle on every vehicle I own.”

“I ordered 2 deer whistles, one for our truck and one for the car, because an article appeared in our car insurance newsletter about the whistles. Hopefully, they will work for us since we live in an area where there are a lot of deer. I also hope they work on horses because my husband was driving to work 1 morning, and a horse was in the road! Will have to come back and make a comment once we get the whistles and find out if they work. We felt like if our insurance company endorsed the idea, it was worth a try.”
