Motorists urged to watch out for deer

Posted: Updated:
It's that time of year again.

State highway officials are urging drivers in East Tennessee to be extra cautious now that deer hunting and mating season have arrived.  

Last year, two people were killed in crashes involving deer in Tennessee.

Officials say deer-related crashes are most likely to occur between October and December, but especially in November.

Drivers should be aware and cautious in areas where deer are populated, and most importantly, slow down.

Tennessee's deer population numbers are close to 900-thousand
