Fishing for Deer – Wait, What?

Some fishing stories are a little hard to believe, but this guy has pictures to prove his story…This story was so unbelievably cool that I just had to put it up…This is what a call a good catch:) Even though I feel bad for the deer, but at least they got rescued:)

Tom Satre told the Sitka Gazette that he was out with a charter group on his 62-foot fishing vessel when four juvenile black-tailed deer swam directly toward his boat.
“Once the deer reached the boat, the four began to circle the boat, looking directly at us. We could tell right away that the young bucks were distressed.

I opened up my back gate and we helped the typically skittish and absolutely wild animals onto the boat. In all my years fishing, I’ve never seen anything quite like it!

“Once on-board, they collapsed with exhaustion, shivering. We headed for Taku Harbour. Once we reached the dock, the first
buck that we had been pulled from the water hopped onto the dock, looked back as if to say ‘thank you’ and disappeared into the forest.”

After a bit of prodding and assistance, two more followed, but the smallest deer needed a little more help (the one in the wheelbarrow).

Isn’t this such an amazing story? So next time you are out fishing don’t be surprised when catching some deer:)
