Carly Robertson has more on the story.
Lonnie Hansen is a Resource Scientist with the Conservation Department.
He says drivers should be especially watchful during this time of the year for deer crossing the road.
Statistics show drivers in urban counties may be at the highest risk.
The amount of traffic in these areas accounts for the high number of deer related accidents.
Hansen warns drivers out in the early morning and evening hours should be especially aware.
