White-Tailed Deer

The white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) is one of Saskatchewan's most popular game animals, found throughout much of the province.  The deer, commonly called the whitetail, is recognizable by the characteristic white underside to its tail.

The white-tailed deer first appeared in Saskatchewan emblems as an element of the armorial bearings proclaimed in 1986.  It was adopted as the official animal emblem in 2001.
