Made a trip from Bandera to N.E. La. Hwy 79 from Round rock. Never saw a road kill deer or live one the whole way or back. Around here it is a death zone along the Hwy. The decomposed remains are everywhere. Do they have too much to eat up there and they never cross roads?

I suspect that's it. I've noticed this before during wet years.
Life is too short, as is. Don't chance it.
Don't text and drive.

Two times a year you will see increase in road kill.
1. Rut
2. Fawning season
During drought the deer like to eat in the ditches where it might be moist and have forb production, thus the increase in collisions. Also, a lot of times in the summer, the carcasses are there, they are just hidden to the drivers eye in higher roadside grass/weeds.

You probably won't see a road killed deer in N.E La. We pick em up and put that meat to good use.
