Deer season for gun hunters is just around the corner, and Louisiana hunters have been busy making all the necessary preparations and studying deer signs to see where they might get their trophy buck. Locating and predicting where deer go is easy when the deer do what they are supposed to do, but there are a lot of factors that can change deer habits and travel routes.
One way for sure NOT to find deer is to follow the kind of deer sign shown in the photo in today’s article. Okay, for most people, anyway.
There is a hilarious youtube video of a lady in North Dakota who called in recently and blamed the state Transportation Department for causing a number of deer-related car accidents she has been involved in recently – three to be exact. The lady told the radio hosts that she has written local news outlets about her grievance and they refuse to take her seriously. It’s extremely frustrating to Donna as she believes she has crafted a very simple and effective solution to her problem. Well, let’s allow her to explain in her own words:
“My frustration is that, Minnesota and North Dakota Departments of Transportation would allow these deer crossing in such high traffic areas. I mean, I’ve even seen them on the interstate,” Donna began.
“Why are we encouraging deer to cross at the interstate? I don’t get it,” Donna said to two stunned radio hosts. I mean, I understand that deers are animals and they need to travel across the streets occasionally to survive and of course to find food but it seems to me… so irresponsible of us to allow these deer crossings to be in areas where these deer are so likely to be struck by oncoming traffic. Wouldn’t you agree?”
The radio hosts were speechless. And I guess I’ll let you draw your own conclusions, too. If you’d like to hear that whole interview, click on the box below. And watch out for those deer signs.
