Drivers: Watch Out For Deer

Drivers watch-out! It's time to be on the lookout for deer because fall months bring about an increase in deer activity.

The Texas Department of Transportation says because we've had so much rainfall this year, more deer are out and could cross traffic. We spoke to a biologist with the Texas Parks and Wildlife in Wichita County. He says there's a higher population this year, but that doesn't mean more of the animals will be on the roads. Charlie Newberry says deer tend to cross traffic more during drought years because they are searching for water. However, he does say drivers still need to be careful because deer do cross roadways. He also says this is breeding season so you might run across a buck trying to find a mate.

Bottom line: always be on the lookout.
