Motorists need to be particularly wary this time of year as many factors come into play that increase car-deer accidents in the area. Huron Central Dispatch told us they had a steady stream of them Monday night into Tuesday morning. With farmers working all hours, including overnight trying to get crops off the field or plowing fields the crops that have been harvested are spooking the deer. Couple that with the mating season winding down, and hunters in the woods. More hunters will be out as Wednesday starts the firearm deer season. Besides archery hunters, there will be those scouting and setting up their blinds for the start of the firearm season. Weather changes can also put deer on the move. Be careful, as while dawn and dusk tend to be when they're the most active, car-deer crashes can occur anytime.
