Nov. Safety Talk: Deer Season

It's deer season again. Please be aware that with deer season comes additional hazards.
  • Increased presence and activity of deer on roadways and in rural areas.
  • Increased presence of human activity and vehicles along rural roads.
  • Hazards related to bow and arrows, guns, and ammunition.
Ways to help keep safe:
  • Wear high visibility clothing, especially in rural areas.
  • Make others aware of your presence.
  • Never assume areas marked PRIVATE PROPERTY or NO HUNTING will not have hunting activity.
The likelihood of being involved in a deer collision more than doubles in October, November and December. Remember:
  • Deer tend to be on the move at dawn and dusk, especially between 6:00 and 9:00pm.
  • Be attentive, drive defensively and wear your seatbelt.
  • Slow down immediately if you spot a deer.
  • When you see one deer near the road expect more, they usually move in groups.
  • Do not swerve to miss a deer, this could cause a more serious accident.
  • If you do collide with a deer do not approach the injured animal. They are powerful and could cause injury.
