Some fish tales are hard to believe. But Tom Satre has the photos to back up the story.
Satre told a reporter in Corvalis, Ore. 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.
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 outwith a charter group on his 62-foot fishing vesselwhen four juvenile black-tailed deer swam directlytoward his boat.
“Once the deer reached the boat, the four began to circlethe boat, looking directly at us. We could tell right away thatthe young bucks were distressed.I opened up my back gate and we helped the typicallyskittish and absolutely wild animals onto the boat.
In all myyears fishing, I’ve never seen anything quite like it!Once onboard, they collapsed with exhaustion, shivering.”“This is a picture Itook of the rescued bucks on the backof my boat, the Alaska Quest.We headed for Taku Harbour . Once we reached thedock, the first buck that we had been pulled from thewater 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 morefollowed, 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 buckto its feet. We didn’t know how long they had been in theicy waters or if there had been others who did not survive.My daughter later told me that the experience was somethingthat 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 way.. “Kindness is the language the blindcan see and the deaf can hear.” – Mark Twain
