On one of our excursions out to see this new province we are in, we went to Elkwater, which is out of Medicine Hat and going toward the Saskatchewan border. It had snowed quite a bit the day before we went, but was nice and sunny on this day.
One of the things that continues to surprise us here is the number and frequency of deer sightings we see. We see them by themselves or in groups of two or three. We see herds of deer as well.
They don't seem too concerned having us close enough to take photos of them.
While one watches us, the others take their time eating their meal.
We have also seen herds of deer in the farmer's fields here in Elkwater and also by Echodale just outside of Medicine Hat. I'm sure in these herds there are a hundred or more deer milling about.
These deer were hanging out in one of the yards along the main road of Elkwater.
I have photos of the herds of deer we have seen that I will post at a later date!
