With higher than normal river levels the past few days, more and more deer are leaving the river bottoms and migrating over to Highway 41.
There’s a large herd of deer just south of the Twin Bridges, waiting to cross.
This can be seen several times a year as the deer herds move from habitat to habitat.
Drivers should use caution in this area because a lot of deer have also been hit and are still on the road.
If you encounter a deer in the road, don’t swerve because that could put you in a much worse situation.
