The Best Day of Fishing Ever!
Some fishing stories are a little hard to believe, but here are pictures to prove this 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 of 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 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 carting 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?

Deer are supposed to be pretty good swimmers. I've seen them swim between the San Juan Islands in WA state and across decent sized lakes in VA.

I have no problem believing that based on an experience we had on the TN River. A deer was crossing and I was shocked how poorly it swam. Worse though, as we approached, still not at all close, it began to swim parallel to the shore to distance from us. We reversed so it would start toward shore again and it did. As soon as it's feet hit the bottom close to shore it took off into the woods.

We watched a grizzly bear make a 2Km crossing of Gardner Canal. It wasn’t struggling, so we didn’t haul it aboard.

Too bad, Murray. I’d have liked to have seen the picture of you wheelbarreling the grizzily back up the dock.

In fact, i thought i first read it on TF.

Agree
This has been up on the Georgian Bay website for awhile.... but still very interesting.
Animals CAN indeed be very cooperative when in need and assistance is being rendered

Richard, if you get to Juneau look up Tom Satre. He and his family are the real deal.
