A neat story!  Too bad that most of the news stories we hear do not have a happy ending.


   Went Fishing, Caught 4  Deer 
A once in the history of  mankind kind of thing. The Best Day Of Fishing Ever! Some fishing  stories are a little  
hard to believe 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 on board, 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 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!
