INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Indiana State Police are warning drivers to watch out for deer this time of year as the hunting season begins, causing an increase in movement and rise in car-deer crashes, especially in rural areas.
State police say crop harvesting also cause deer to be on the move.
Police say deer are generally more active in the pre-dawn hours or the hours just after dusk. They also become more active during late October into early November during the mating season.
Police suggest using high beam headlights at night, watching for reflections from the deer's eyes, watching approaching vehicles and observe what may break their headlights beams, and to be aware that if they see one deer there could be others nearby.
