On July 28, 1998 Canada issued its 2nd "Scenic Highways" series as a set of four, 45c stamps arranged in se-tenant fashion in a traditional sheet. One of these stamps (Sc #1739), shown here, depicts the picturesque Dempster highway, Yukon with a large caribou on the left.

From wikipedia, "The reindeer (Rangifer Tarandus) also known as the caribou in North America, is a species of deer with circumpolar distribution, native to the Arctic, sub-Arctic, boreal, and mountainous regions of Northern Europe, Siberia, and North America."

This 40c stamp of Canada is from a booklet of ten, 40c stamps in 5 different designs showing views of some of the country's wilderness rivers with small, hand drawn highlights in a lower corner. The stamp shown here (Sc #1325) depicts the Main River, Newfoundland and a moose (Alces alces).

Here is the 74c value (Sc #1177) from Canada's "Canadian Mammals" definitive series of 1988-93. Stamp was issued on January 18, 1988 and it depicts a wapiti (Cervus canadensis).

From wikipedia, The elk or wapiti is one of the largest species within the deer family, Cervidae...Elk were long believed to belong to a subspecies of the European red deer (Cervus elaphus), but evidence from many mitochondrial DNA genetics studies beginning in 1998 shows that the two are distinct species."
