Deer in the headlights

NORTHERN WAYNE COUNTY, NY — With these three does in sight, there’s a good chance that a buck is not far away. In the midst of “the rut”—the hunters’ term for white-tailed deer mating season—bucks are seeking to mate and are not paying much attention to anything else, including traffic.
