Yes September starts deer mating and hunting season. So the deer will be on the move and October through December are the months that most Car to Deer Collisions happen in the United States. All states with Deer populations report much higher numbers of accidents involving Deer during these months.
Restoring your headlights and improving your line of sight while driving at night becomes that much more important to your family's safety.
Watch this awesome video below to learn more about why deer act the way they do when a vehicle approaches them.
The U.S. Forest Service Pacific Southwest Research Station wildlife biologist Sandra Jacobson and her partners have produced a video called "Avoiding Wildlife-Vehicle Collisions" That you can view below.
This 25 min. video should be viewed in it's entirety and discusses the Western & Eastern Deer populations of the continental U.S.
Awesome information about why deer freeze when they see headlights, and what you should look for when driving day & night to avoid a collision!

I hope this info helped with any questions you may have had about deer.
