With daylight savings time in effect now, the chances of hitting wildlife increase. November is the peak mating season for deer and they are more likely to crossing roadways. If you do hit an animal, report the accident immediately to police. Colorado Parks and Wildlife require people who want to salvage road kill, to apply for a permit within 48 hours of the incident. U-S Highway 50 from Monarch Pass to Montrose and U-S Highway 550 north of Durango to Delta are high risk areas where you should be especially alert.
