You don’t have to be a hunter to come into the crosshairs of wildlife during the fall months. Depending on where you live, chances are, you and your vehicle may be in the same path as deer, elk, moose, raccoons, birds, cows and even bears. Rutting or mating season for many animals is October through December. It’s also the time many herds migrate.

The National Association of Insurance Commissioners has these tips to make sure you understand what insurance coverage you need before a collision--and how you can enhance your safety when driving.
