Drivers should be on the alert for deer in Kentucky. October marks the beginning of a three-month peak season to see deer on roadways. The Department of Fish and Wildlife says that’s because this time of year is mating season. Deer are more likely to cross roads with bucks chasing does. The Kentucky Farm Bureau says almost half of all collisions involving deer happen in October, November and December. Hardin County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Greg Lowe says deer are most active early in the morning or late at night.
