When It Rains Deer Bed Down?
Posted 17 June 2007 - 07:44 PM
However to this day I always feel real good when traveling the Interstates and turnpikes during heavy rains. I know the deer are not moving and they are bedding down.
However I do remember on New Years day I was traveling up Intestate 81 to visit my parents with my children. 12:00 noon and a doe comes up a steep hill and runs right into the side of my Saturn. The Saturn took the blunt of the hit. It actually cracked the outer surface of the Saturn where the deer hit.
I knew right away what had happened. Some hunters must have been hunting grouse, or deer with flintlocks or bow and jumped the doe. The doe in an effort to escape headed up the steep hill right into the side of my car.
Anyway what your feelings on rain and deer movement. Did you ever hit a deer along our major roads at night time when it was raining?

Kinda on a side note, how many of you have seen a Deer try to shake itself dry (kinda like a dog) ??

Excepting years like this one where there are bad droughts...we get tons of rain, so, I'm kinda thinking they don't care so much. But, I've heard tale of folks walking up to a bedded down deer in the hard rain, the more hardcore people...in swamps of all places. (too much ick for me lol )
