DNR warns of deer activity coming soon

By The Associated Press
Police in north Georgia have responded to multiple reports of motorists colliding with deer in recent days and state wildlife officials say the danger will escalate through the fall.
The Georgia Department of Natural Resources recently sent out an alert that urged motorists to pay extra attention to the roadsides as the season of peak deer activity approaches.

Drivers should keep in mind that deer are wild and unpredictable.  A deer calmly standing on the side of a road may bolt into or across the road rather than away from it when startled by a vehicle.

Deer mating season occurs between October and late December. Rush hour for most commuters tends to fall during the same hours in which white-tailed deer are most active dawn and dusk.
