Went Fishing, Caught 4 Deer
but this guy has pictures to prove his story…
I’ve heard of salmon jumping into boats,
but never anything quite like this…
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 onboard, they collapsed with exhaustion, shivering.”
“This is a picture I
took of the rescued bucks on the back
of my boat, the Alaska Quest.
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.
This is me carrying the little guy.
My daughter, Anna, and son, Tim, helped the last buck
to its feet. We didn’t know how long they had been in the
icy waters or if there had been others who did not survive.
My daughter later told me that the experience was something
that she would never forget, and I suspect the deer felt the same way as well!”
I told you! Awesome… huh?
