Pennsylvania has one of the highest number of vehicle accidents involving deer per year. Here are two factors that cause an increase in deer accidents in the fall:
-Rut Season: Male deer are on a mission to find a mate and are not paying as much attention to their surroundings. Peak rut season occurs in mid-November. -The end of Daylight Saving Time: Daylight Saving Time will end this Sunday, November 7th and more commuters will be on the road at dusk. Dusk and dawn are when white-tailed deer are most active.
Stay safe and watch for deer!
