I like how a deer is supposed to be so sensetive that it can hear this whistle, but apparently they aren't quite sensetive enough to hear a bike screaming toward them. Sounds like a gimmick to me.

WARNING
If you are reading this then this warning is for you. Every word you read of this useless fine print is another second off your life. Don't you have other things to do? Is your life so empty that you honestly can't think of a better way to spend these moments? Or are you so impressed with authority that you give respect and credence to all who claim it? Do you read everything you're supposed to read? Do you think everything you're supposed to think? Buy what you're told you should want? Get out of your apartment. Meet a member of the opposite sex. Stop the excessive shopping and masturbation. Quit your job. Start a fight. Prove you're alive. If you don't claim your humanity you will become a statistic. You have been warned...... Tyler

I doubt it. I think they're all standing around the salt lick in deer heaven still telling the same three stories about how it went down. The ones that saw the light, the ones that saw the light that whistled, and then every fall, a rush of ones who saw the guy in the orange cap who reeked of doe piss.

A friend of mine had been riding for several years, then one day he put them on his bike, he hit 3 deer that next night, all at once, but 3 deer didn't get out of the way for them, no they don't work.

Have lived in deer country most of my riding life. Said whistles sell, but they do not work.

Year before last there was an operation on a hwy I often use some miles from home. With all the equipment that gobbled up the top few inches of the tarmac & did all the rest to come out with fresh material, some of you may have seen & realize it requires a number of machines sort of locked togeather SO a lot of men & other vehicles.

Single run does a lane. They had done one lane on each side & so on the south side again. I am rding along & slow down due to all the vehicles, men such as am going by all this noise ONLY I look down in the ditch & there are 3 Mule Deer peacefully eating away at the grass -----the noise & men did not scare them.

In fact nothing scares them for they live only a few feet or yards back of the ditch in the thick growth of pine trees & a maze of 18 wheelers & such are screaming past all the time. Many fitted with deer whistles!!!!!!!!!!

Fact is this is a busy hwy, for big truckers, from the lower B.C. Interior leading to Vancouver, B.C. along with many small cities & towns along the way & natch the other way as well---lots of vehicles.

A couple of years ago i tried em for the hell of it,I did not see any difference.Heck wensday moring on the way to work I literaly pulled up to with in ten feet of a deer who rasied her head looked at me on my bike and didn't even think of running.Here in the burbs they are just too used to strange noises and people to be afraid.In that vein of though no way a wistle will work if my Triumph exhaust didn't startle it.
