More deer are expected to be on the move this time of year and motorsists are being asked to be cautious.
"As white tail begin to rut," explained Darrel Crabbe, Executive Director for the Saskatchewan Wildlife Federation, "the males start to move over long distances, pretty much in a straight line looking for does. And of course, they have no concern about crossing roads."
"We ask people, certainly in those geographic areas around valleys or where there's trees close to the road to slow down and take a few minutes."
He added htat the signage in Saskatchewan is well done in alerting motorists to where there is a dense deer population.
"People have to take some precautions around those areas. Just slow down a little bit because deer have a habit of darting out onto the roads. And even more so during those low light conditions, dusk and dawn."
Also with snowfall, the deer will be moving around to find new sources of food.
"There's going to be a lot more movement over the next few months."
