This is along our route to Saskatoon, our closest city. This is our country road in the winter time. It snowed in the afternoon and Allen took the photos on his way home in the evening. The vehicle tracks are obvious and all those extra tracks running parallel - are deer tracks. It looks like the tracks could have been made by a passing sheep flock. I see tracks like this in the pastures in level places where the sheep can spread out to travel. In deep snow or difficult terrain, sheep travel single file and I imagine deer do to. I love how the deer take the easy and use the roads in late winter, when the snow in the ditches and the fields is deep and uneven.
In this next photo the deer are in the distance, although hard to see. In late winter they travel in large groups so it’s common to see many of them.
