Got this in an email, don't know the origin or facts.

Caught 1-1/2 miles offshore while Fishing!



What is that?! Look in the middle.



Can it be, really!!!



It's a DEER!!!



Not too much of a struggle?



He was very glad to be on board.



He was sooo tired and was glad to get into our boat and rest!
And yes, we turned him loose when we got back to shore.

Just try beating this Fish Story!

Having fished in the Florida Keys a whole lot in my life that whole photo essay looks like the Florida Keys and a Keys deer. They swim island to island frequently. 1.5 miles from shore is quite a ways into the wrong direction though. They are very much protected in every way, even special speed limits in the Key Deer sanctuary. There are a lot of deer there, they are about 1/2 to 2/3 the size of a full grown deer from outside the Islands. They are also a whitetail deer sub species.

Whether or not this is from that area I can't say for sure, I'm not a gambler. However I feel from what it looks like that this photo is from the Florida Keys.
