Deer Season Causes an Increase in Suspicious Vehicle Calls

PRAIRIE COUNTY, Ark. -- Deer season is in full swing for bow hunters here in Arkansas, and this weekend's milder weather is Mother Nature's invitation to head outside.

This time of year also marks higher calls to law enforcement for suspicious vehicles.
Some prime spots for hunters like the Wattensaw Wildlife Management Area as well as the Cache and White Rivers are also prime parking spots. 

"A lot of them have their little favorite hunting spot, but they have to drive down in a ditch next to the woods to get to it off I-40 and that's what they do, and that's when we get a lot of calls," said Prairie County Sheriff Rick Hickman.

Even though many of these seemingly abandoned vehicles belong to hunters, sheriff's departments in the delta still encourage people call in suspicious activity.

Muzzleloader deer hunting season for most of Arkansas begins October 21.
