Well Jim, nothing close to your 2 but while fishing Nolin Lake here in Ky, I was traveling up the lake when I saw a deer swimming right in the middle of the lake. I stopped to wait and see if it made it and it did.
Now I have to tell you that my thought was to assist if it needed but after it made it I thought that trying to help a deer to shore in the middle of a lake would have been a really bad idea.
Very odd seeing that thing in the middle of the lake though.
