Hunters can’t help but roll their eyes when a non-hunter asks the question, “Did you catch any deer?”
However, the video below shows that maybe we can in fact “catch a deer.” At least that’s what happened for one hunter/fisherman on a recent trip to the lake. Check it out…
The situation in the video above is obviously a rare encounter. However, a similar situation occurred for BHOD staffer, Kurt Thorsen, this past year while on the water. He tells the story of a buck he and a buddy pulled from the water while fishing.
“Shortly after launching our kayaks, I noticed something up ahead tangled up in a root ball along the shore,” says Thorsen. “At first, I didn’t think anything of it. I figured it was a sun-bleached root or someone’s trash.”
“As we continued casting down the shore line it became apparent that it was more than just a root ball.”
“I quickly realized it was a deer, but the closer we got the more points that started to appear from the brush. There were 13 points, to be exact!”
What about you? What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever pulled from the water on your line?
