Date Posted: Monday, October 31st, 2016

Bowers residents – please read.  There are deer that cross Main St. to and from the marsh and fields on a regular basis.  SLOW DOWN.  Please follow the speed limits.


DOVER (Oct. 28, 2016) – With shorter days ahead – especially after the change Nov. 6 from Daylight Savings back to Standard Time – and more 9-to-5 workers driving home at dusk, DNREC’s Division of Fish & Wildlife reminds all Delaware motorists to be alert for deer crossing roadways.

“At the end of our work day, as we’re heading home, deer are just beginning their peak movement time,” said Emily Boyd, Division of Fish & Wildlife deer biologist. “From dusk to midnight and within a few hours of sunrise are when motorists need to be especially alert and watch for deer on the road.”
