Drivers urged to use caution as deer activity increases
Placeholder Image
Motorists traveling Dawson County roads should keep a keen eye out for deer as the season changes, especially the week of Nov. 17-23. Fall is prime mating season for deer across Georgia, and it's also when drivers are more likely to hit a deer, according to a study conducted by the University of Georgia. Researchers recently completed a county-by-county analysis of deer activity by comparing breeding data to deer versus vehicle collision statistics across the state.
