Drive Careful

By Robert Jahnke

In the Ketchikan and outlaying areas we have now entered the green up phase of the year when the road side ditches and open areas are greening up drawing deer into areas dangerous to them and drivers alike.

With the recent sightings and different photos taken of wolves on the roads out north this may increase the chance of auto/deer encounters. With the Does starting to carry fawns now, let's be extra careful driving along the stretch of Tongass where deer sightings are more common this time of year.

Remember a few deer on the road right now does not necessarily represent high populations overall.

Let's be careful.
