Deer in the Methow (Met-how) Valley can be one of those four-letter words. The population is quite prolific and deer vs. vehicle is no laughing matter. So much so that warning signs abound as you drive through.
The saying is there are two kinds of people in the Methow. Those who have hit deer and those who are going to.
At dusk, it is best to slow down to the posted speed limit. This summer especially we have had several close calls. We try to be vigilant as we journey through the valley as I don't want to join the first group above.
I also don't want to become #209.
