Sheriff James J. Bindl reminds motorists to be extra aware of their surroundings as deer hunters enter the woods of Wisconsin.
With the increased hunting activity and the changing weather, deer and other animals are more likely to wander onto area roadways.
Sheriff Bindl also reminds motorists that while a light dusting of snow is good for the hunt, it also brings a need to extra careful as you travel.
Be sure to allow more time to get to your destination, and leave more distance between you and the car ahead of you for stopping.
Check the condition of your tires and wipers and be sure all lights on your vehicle are in working order.
Carry a cold weather kit including a blanket in your vehicles and be alert to changing weather conditions.
