112509deer

A doe watches warily in the morning fog. With firearms season in full swing in Floyd and nearby counties through Dec. 12, deer of both sexes are falling prey to hunters.

But you still see as many deer dead alongside roads. I counted four along U.S. 221 between Floyd and Copper Hill the other day and two became victims of collisions with vehicles between Harvestwood and Poor Farm roads.

Let’s be careful out there.
