NJDOT: Watch For Deer on the Roads This Fall
OCEAN COUNTY – The New Jersey Division of Fish and Wildlife is urging motorists to be alert for white-tailed deer on the roadways with the upcoming arrival of the fall breeding season. Drivers should especially be alert during the morning and evening commutes when visibility may be poor and deer are more active. Studies indicate the peak mating season for deer in New Jersey runs from late October into mid-December. Motorists are urged to alert the Department of Transportation of dead deer discovered along the state highway system.
