Went Fishing, Caught Four 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 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.

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!"
Awesome... huh?
Our Lord works in mysterious ways.
"Kindness is the language the blind can see and
 the deaf can hear."

Fishing in dubai taking time and actual effort to make a very good article but what can I say I procrastinate a lot and by no means seem to get something done.
