'tis the Season of deer, and Sergeant Curt Mowers, of the Minnesota State Highway Patrol, tells K-Lakes' News that it's always good to bear in mind that the deer are around--mainly at night. He also mentioned that the YTD fatalities for the state are down--due, they feel, in part to the fact that folks are driving slower to conserve gasoline.
