Deer in 431

It was a crazy place for a dead deer to show up the highway. This doe had apparently been struck and killed on Highway 431 at the foot of the mountain near Crawmama's late last week. The car pictured here wasn't the one that struck it but it was trying to dodge it just like everyone else passing by.

The rut doesn't just put deer on their feet more so hunters have a better chance at them. 

It also means the risk for a motorist to encounter a deer in the highway is stronger since the animals are more active. They can show up in some odd places. 

The deer pictured above showed up in town, on Highway 431 at the bottom of the mountain near Crawmama's, where it was struck by a car late last week. 

Motorists were trying to dodge the dead animal, creating something of a traffic hazard on the busiest thoroughfare in Marshall County.
