    Seen a few fresh in my area as well. I'd say it has some to do with the fact that overgrown fields that were safe for bedding are now being cut or planted.

    Wildlife of all kinds around here showing themselves during all times of the day. Deer running around midday acting crazy probably from the ticks,skeeters etc.. useless parasites

    Come on now, no conspiracy theories? Mt lions? KDFWR driving them in to traffic to improve bear habitat? Everybody slacking.
