LATEST NEWS
  • MADISON, WI—Deer hunting season is here and Commissioner of Insurance Ted Nickel reminds consumers to check their auto insurance policies to make sure they have coverage for deer hits.

    "Deer are on the move and active generally mid-October through the end of November," said Nickel. "The fall is mating season for deer in North America, which means that male deer are bolder in their movements and less focused on their environment," continued Nickel. "Soon the deer hunting season will open requiring drivers to be even more careful. Without the proper insurance in place, you'll be faced with a large repair bill or, worse, a totaled vehicle with no coverage."
