You’ve likely seen more deer crossing area roads and have had to slow down or swerve to avoid hitting a few. That’s because deer herds are in the middle of the rut or mating season. The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources says that has deer on the move. Wildlife Biologist Josh Martinez says bucks will cover a lot of ground and roads this time of year.
The mating season runs through December and the herd will become more active and mobile during the nine-day firearms deer hunt.
