Deer can jump 12 foot fences, depending on how scared they are. The dept of wildlife have recorded deer jumping 15 foot.You're talking about Turtle fences in NY.Upstate New York has fences on both sides of the road going through corn country. The deer just jump over them. Sometimes from a standing still position. Would work pretty well with the alligators, though, I suspect.Alligator ally, at the South end of Florida in the Everglades rarely ever has animal strikes....deer OR alligator./——/ Folks in update NY have these high pitched whistles attached to their bumpers to warn/scare the deer. I don’t know how well they work. Good thing the deer didn’t smash through your windshield.I was going to town about 5:15 this morning. All I saw was a flash as he ran across the front of me from the left. By the time I hit the brakes and swerved a little to the left, I clipped him on the ass-end with my right front side. He was a big one and had a decent-sized rack on him, but I didn't count the points because he kept running.
I didn't stop, but continued on a couple miles to town to assess the damage. It didn't do any mechanical damage or knock the steering out of alignment. Just some front fender and body work, and the right-front headlight housing shattered into a thousand pieces. The insurance will cover it.

They put fences on both sides, but provided protected crossings for animals under the highway.
I guess Florida Man is smarter than most of the idiots elsewhere.
The fences along Alligator alley are 12 FEET TALL
No deer on Earth can jump a 12 ft fence.
