WILLIAMSPORT, LYCOMING COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) — It’s deer mating season and they are on the move and one local auto body shop anticipates being busier than normal with cars being damaged by deer.
Dincher’s Auto Body Shop in Williamsport service these types of accidents throughout the year. But, come mating season, also known as the rut, they’ll have one to three cars brought in each day.
The owner, George Dincher says he’s lucky to have never hit a deer, but suggests drivers slow down or completely stop if one is in your path.
Dincher advises all motorists to slow down during this time of year.
“Two to three a day ain’t nothing out of the ordinary to see them come in. Sometimes they’re just there waiting in the office for the next one. So it’s a busy, busy time,” said Dincher.
According to the PA Game Commission, mating season is typically between late October and late November.
