DEER DRAGGING A BOAT

ONE TIME I WAS UP IN NORTHERN MICHIGAN IN A ROWBOAT IN A RIVER. I
HAD A LASSO WITH ME, AND I SAW A DEER ON THE SHORE. SO I DECIDED TO
LASSO THE DEER. THE LASSO WAS TIED TO THE BOAT, AND I GOT THE DEER,
ALL RIGHT, BUT THE DEER BEGAN TO RUN, PULLING THE BOAT WITH HIM. I
FELL OUT OF THE BOAT, AND WHEN I FINALLY GOT MYSELF OUT OF THE WATER,
I COULDN'T FIND THE BOAT.
A LITTLE OVER A YEAR LATER, WHEN I WAS UP THERE HUNTING AGAIN, I
SAW A DEER WITH A ROWBOAT TIED TO HIM. SO I FIGURED IT WAS THE SAME
DEER.
