MONROE - They might sometimes appear too unintelligent to move out of the way, but deer are really just in a persistent pursuit of a mate and not worrying about the vehicles that hit them. Bucks are chasing doe deer all over the Wisconsin countryside during their mating season, known as the rut. With more than 200 vehicle vs. deer accidents so far this year in Green County, it is important for drivers to keep in mind that deer are not looking for you - you have to look for them.
