It's Deer Season :: Be Careful Out There
For those who hunt in Maryland and Virginia, deer season has started (VA, early archery) or is about to start (MD, firearms), which means it's a good time to know where tree stands are, and who else is on the farms where you hunt, especially if it's more than shotgun-only in your area.
Deer season is off-and-on until January.
To give you some idea of how many deer are in the part of Maryland that I hunt, Region B's bag Limit is 12 (2 antlered and 10 antlerless), but in in Anne Arundel, Baltimore, Howard, Montgomery, and Prince George's counties, it's unlimited antlerless. Get a big freezer, and knock yourself out.
For non-hunters, keep an eye out on the roads. Deer in rut lose their minds, and a deer-vehicle impact is a very bad day on the road for all concerned.
