That deer has no ambition. Last month's Field & Stream ran a photo taken by a Coast Guardsman of an 8-point whitetail swimming across Lake Erie on his way to Cleveland. You can see the skyline a couple miles in the distance. The Coastie said he offered to get his bow and remove the hazard to navigation, but they wouldn't let him do it.

I'm outraged that Canadian deer can just swim across the border any time they want. Something has to be done to keep us secure from these radical whitetails. I mean, what's next? Canadian geese flying across the border??
I wonder if there's any federal money available for a study, Just a few million, we could do it. I'll interview the deer on The Canadian side, you interviews our desertes , we file an "inconclusive report" and then get more funding.
Like most hunters we all are looking for something to keep the deer on our hunting ground and to bring more deer into our hunting ground. Most of the time we just don’t have the room or funding for this to even happen.
