Went Fishing, Caught 4 Deer

From an e-mail:

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 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 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? Our Lord works in mysterious ways..
