With mating and hunting season at hand, the The Tennessee Highway Patrol is asking drivers to be on the lookout for deer, which are abundant in the greater Clarksville area.

October through December is prime time for crashes involving deer, with 6,135 deer-related accidents last year. That’s a 3.2% increase over the previous year’s total of 5,947 accidents.

Deer-related crashes have been on the uptick over the past five years and nearly 9% of the deer-related incidents happened on the interstates.

Drivers are encouraged to call THP (847) to report any deer-related crashes.

With plenty of farmland and wooded areas scattered around Clarksville, the local deer population is heavy and deer are frequently seen around town, particularly in the morning and late afternoon. Drive with caution and awareness.
