Fall is in the air, and, for deer, so is love.

Their increased activity during mating season can pose dangers to drivers.

    They mean you've hit deer more than one time perhaps even with different vehicles because you've totaled several vehicles since you travel in rural areas and frequently encounter deer on the roads.

    The accompanying poll doesn't make a lot of sense to me. I could see hitting a deer once. But multiple times? How many people back up to hit a deer a second time and then go forward to whack it yet again?

    Deer pose Frederick County road hazard and this sign is placed where vehicles have hit deer therefore it is the perfect illustration for the topic.

    You mean with all the law abiding, gun owning hunters in Frederick County the state police are the only ones farmers trust to hunt on their land?

    5 1/2 - 6, still no difference. You do not live in this state.

    Upton, it has been over 6 years since you even lived in this state.

    It's been more than 5 and a half year since I've been to Spring Ridge.

    Simple sense. Does were safe for a long time. Once they tried to cull them, they became twilight, they went into hiding. But as a rule, deer stare at headlights. And you can pick them up much like the "Cats Eyes" they use to put into telephone poles. But..you have to pay attention while driving to see them..Now..does that make sense?

    They should have used the sign in Spring Ridge with the creative modification.

    With all the supposedely deer in Frederick county, why couldn't you find one to take a picture of instead of taking a picture of a sign?

    I can never understand why people like to hunt. "Kill Bambi".

    Deer...rats on tall legs. One little tip...put down the cell phone and keep an eye for their eyes. Deer are twilight more now since they opened up on Does. Their eyes light up like crazy in plenty of time to avoid most collisions.

    Is hitting a human an 'Act of God,' too?
