Drivers should be especially vigilant for deer during the month of November in Oklahoma.

According to the Oklahoma Wildlife Department, Oklahoma had 424 reported vehicle accidents involving deer in 2016. And the department's recent rut report stated that there has been "plenty of deer movement being reported in all regions of the state." According to the department, "scientific studies have confirmed that the breeding season, increased deer movement and the number of deer-vehicle collisions show a strong correlation."

Dallas Barber, big game biologist for the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation, said that "As the rut starts to pick up, they put caution to the wind, and we’ll see an increase in collisions. A lot of the time with a vehicle, you’re either hitting a doe being pushed by a buck, or a buck that is chasing a doe that already crossed the road.”

And not long after the Oklahoma Wildlife Department tweeted its warning for rut season and increased deer-vehicle collisions, people responded with their most recent deer collisions.

Some wished the department would've tweeted the warning sooner.

And it looks like some deer are already getting revenge on hunters.

So drive safe and watch for deer!

Most would agree with the results below. Unless you live in one of these places, then you may disagree. Also, keep in mind this list was all done in good fun. Sure there's some truth to the findings but like most places, you'll find both good and bad. Keep scrolling to check out Oklahoma's top 10 snobbiest towns and cities to see if your hometown made the list.

Ten Iconic Oklahoma Restaurants You Have To Try

I think it's fair to say that each state probably has its own legends when it comes to restaurants. Pennsylvania has cheesesteaks, New York has wings and pizza, Texas has Franklin BBQ and Tex-Mex, etc...

Oklahoma is no different.

Birthed into statehood as a cattle state, there's no shortage of beef on any menu here, but there's a little room for chicken and fries too. Here are the absolute, hands down, best restaurants, in no particular order, everyone has to try in The Sooner State.
