State transportation and wildlife officials are urging Maine motorists to be extra careful this time of year for deer on the roads. The deer population in Maine has rebounded to about 200,000, according to a state biologist. That’s a nice recovery from when about a third of the Maine deer population died during the 2008-09 winter.November is also when deer are mating and are on the move.

Waldo County Chief Sheriff’s Deputy Jeff Trafton, tells the Associated Press, that his department has dealt with 45 deer collisions in the past 31 days.

Officials say to drive slower in areas with deer crossing signs, use high beams when possible and remain aware of your surroundings.

Maine averages nearly 3,000 vehicle collisions with deer in a year.
