White-tailed deer are on the move in Texas at this time of year. So are people, as the holiday season is quickly approaching. However, moving vehicles and deer in motion make for a dangerous—even deadly—combination.
According to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Game Warden in Caldwell County, Joann Garza-Mayberry, deer are especially active between the end of September through mid-January because it’s breeding season, also known as the “rut.” So, here are a few things to keep in mind for when you’re driving in and around Lockhart at this time of year:
Game Warden Mayberry also wants to remind you it is illegal to possess a white-tailed deer or any part of it, especially antlers, that was hit by a motor vehicle. It goes against state law because a motor vehicle is not an approved means and method to harvest a deer in Texas. It is also illegal to use a hunting license tag to tag the deer, or any game animal, and take it with you. If caught, you could be subject to a $25-$500 fine.
