It is surprising how even small gravel backroads with little traffic will act as a barrier for deer movement. I share pics with the neighbor down at camp. It is surprising how many different buck that either I get or he has that the other one doesn't. Now some bucks we both get pics of too. We both have multiple cameras but I know that 2 of ours are within 150 yards of each other.

I drive the interstate every day and by the amount of roadkill during peak rut it’s obviously not a barrier in any way. I think the mature bucks are a little smarter but the 1-2 year olds tend to die young.

I agree with everybody! I notice movement crossing the road in the night time more though here in ky. The roads have way more traffic in daytime! They tend to know this and use the cover of darkness!
