SOCIAL CIRCLE, Ga. (AP) — Georgia wildlife officials are reminding drivers to look out for deer on the roads this fall.
The Georgia Department of Natural Resources' Wildlife Resources Division says fall is a time of peak deer activity.
The agency has tips to avoid collisions with deer:
— Deer move around more frequently in the fall because it's mating season, so be alert;
— If you spot one deer, look for others because deer generally travel in groups;
— Watch out when deer are most active, in the early morning and late evening;
— Remember deer are wild and can be unpredictable, sometimes bolting into the road rather than away from it when startled by a vehicle;
— Reduce speed to minimize damage if it's too late to avoid a collision.
