If you drive rural or outlying roads, take it easy, the deer have a death wish lately. Hard winters drive wildlife into the lower areas and onto roadways. I’ve noticed a ton of roadkill lately. When I was driving in on Trent the other morning, I saw a WSDOT crew picking up dead deer, and even one moose killed near my house. They had a pickup truck full of carcasses. Job security I guess, although that’s one job I don’t envy.

Anyway, my point is, be observant, especially at night. Animals are just waiting to jump out in front of you.
