Hilligoss had the highway department order four of the signs from a Chicago company six months ago to be used in his town of Paxton, Illinois.
"A lot of people see it," Hilligoss said. "If you ask anybody where a deer crossing sign is they couldn't tell you, but they know where that one is at."
Hillgross said that there have not been any deer-related accidents reported so far in 2016. He attributes it to the sign doing its job.
"It's just nice to see something that constantly reminds you that there are deer running out there," he said.
