Ask a Trooper: Don't veer for deer!
Q: How about an article on hitting a deer and what to do? Deer season is coming up.
A: Great timing! We normally talk about this every year about this time.
Drivers need to be aware that there are many more deer on the run during the late summer and fall months, resulting in many more animals being hit. Slow down when you get to an area with trees on either or both sides of the road, and watch for deer! We are seeing some bear getting hit now, too.
