Deer Catch-and-Release

Story and Photos by Kris Millgate

“Yes! Did you get that?”

“Get what?”

“That deer.”

“What deer?”

“The one in the net.”

“Where?” I say, lifting my head.

“Put your head down. The deer can’t see you.”

“But if the deer can’t see me, I can’t see them.”

“Shh. Coming in hot on our right.”

(We hear the sound of a net snapping to my right.)

“Oh, he’s in good. You got that, right?”

“Got what?”

“That deer tangled in the net on our right.”

“Really?” I say, rising to my knees.

“Stop moving. Stay down. Here comes another one.”
