Speaking of Fall - The Fall is an important DEER reminder time. According to SavAmNews, 50,000 accidents annually involve deer there & it’s mostly at this time of year (& Spring) when their natural food sources become scarce so they migrate to road shoulders. Also, it’s mating season between Oct-Dec when males are actively searching for mates. The change in Daylight Savings time (11/1) makes days shorter & the nights longer w/rush hour for drivers when deer are most active at dawn & dusk. So slow down, please. Our security guards on Fripp Island stop and warn speeders of these dangers. It isn't walways the rental property guests that are guilty.... Because the 'traffic' is lighter, and there are fewer golf carts on the roads, the Fripp Island Property Owners tend to put the peddle to the metal a little bit more. But it can be dangerous - since these deer just pop out of nowhere....and if you see one, then look around - there are probably a few more in the same immediate vacinity.
