Watch for Deer on Roadways During Fall Season


Around this time each year deer activity increases as more and more deer are on the move due to what is known as the rut. While this time is great for deer hunters it can be a bad time for drivers as there is generally an increase in deer-related crashes during this time of the year.


In an effort to help reduce the likelihood of a crash, Cherokee County Sheriff David Groves has some tips to help drivers. Be extra alert near water sources and wooded areas, use bright lights when possible, reduce speed, especially in areas known to be common habitats for deer, scan the ditches and remember if you see one deer, there are likely others close, pay particular attention during dusk and dawn, which are times when deer are more on the move, buckle up and reduce distractions while driving.
