Deer have been known to appear dead after being shot only to spring back up and run away or attempt to attack an approaching hunter. For some tips on how to approach a wounded whitetail deer, or any other big game, please see this story: Before You Claim Your Game …
There seems to be an increase in the number of hunting fines and convictions being handed out in Saskatchewan in recent years. The officers from Saskatchewan Environment in the past had a reputation for giving warnings but recently the warnings are turning into fines and hunters being banned from hunting in Saskatchewan. In an incident from last fall, a man from Wisconsin was caught hunting deer without a license and was banned from hunting in Saskatchewan for a year. but just two weeks later he was found hunting with another outfitter in Saskatchewan and was subsequently fined $4200 and banned for two years. More on the story here: http://globalnews.ca/news/3644901/american-fined-banned-illegal-hunting-saskatchewan/ In a separate incident from several years ago (2014) 4 men from Saskatchewan were illegally operating as outfitters during which a mule deer buck was shot in Southwest Saskatchewan and exported to the U.S. by the client. The 4 illegal outfitters were fined a combined $71,000. It is illegal to hunt mule deer in Saskatchewan unless you are a Saskatchewan resident.

Outdoor Canada magazine recently reported that Saskatchewan hunters should expect improving whitetail population from the farmland-forest fringe through to northern forest hunting regions.
Recent harsh winters have caused population declines due to a number of hard winters in a row from 2010 to 2014. However the last several winters have been considerably milder with less extreme temperatures and less snow. The whitetail population is on the upswing now.
