Overall Activity Status: On Tuesday, September 9, Mike Stimmell and I took a drive around the same circuit of the northwestern corner of the Allegheny National Forest that we have been driving the past few years. Since the 48 deer we saw were about as many as we have ever seen on the route, it would appear that deer are active. However, several of the deer spotted early in the evening, just after nightfall, were bedded. Later on, all of the deer were on their feet. The moon was one day past full, and it was visible in the night sky.
