A father and son out on a weekend fishing trip were credited with making a surprising catch, and it was all caught on tape.

The two were in the waters off Bay Port, Mich. when they came across a fawn in distress.

They pulled their boat up to the deer, allowing the father to grab its head and hold it above water. Next, he carefully pulled the animal into the boat.

The pair then released the deer near the shore, where it was very happy to get back to dry land.
