There was a time in New Jersey and the northeastern U.S. when white-tailed deer were a rarity. A little over a century ago local newspapers heralded the news when the state Game Commission sent deer for release in local woods. A deer sighting was an item of note. How times have changed. Today deer are everywhere in New Jersey from the most rural to residential and even urban areas.

Accidents involving deer common

Deer cause millions of dollars of damage to crops in New Jersey, according to one Rutgers University overview of the population. They can also carry tick-borne illnesses. One of the greatest dangers, however, is when deer and motor vehicles meet. Especially in rural areas of the state, motor vehicle accidents involving deer are commonplace, sometimes resulting in major damage and injuries.  In many cases, the deer becomes the victim when it runs into a road into the path of an oncoming vehicle. One of the most dangerous times for motorists — and deer — is in the breeding or rutting season from mid-September through November.

The correction may soon morph into a full-fledged bear market if the Fed makes good on its supposed intentions to raise interest rates this year. Have no illusions, while most market observers are quick to blame the sell-off on China, this market was given life by the Fed, and the Fed is the only force that will keep it alive. Unfortunately for the Fed, it won’t be able to get away with doing nothing for too much longer. Events may soon force it to show its hand. Then perhaps some may notice that the Fed is holding absolutely nothing and has been bluffing the entire time.
