|Jessica Saenger shot this deer, but wolves reaped the benefits. Finders keepers.|
Jessica Saenger, 17, was in a deer stand near Floodwood last Saturday when a doe pranced into her field of vision. She took aim, shot what she felt was a kill shot, and watched as the deer, presumably injured, hightailed it for the woods.
After waiting in hopes the deer had indeed been shot and was bleeding out, Jessica got down from the stand. But she was in for a surprise soon after she began following the blood trail.SEE ALSO: Wolf hunt closes Sunday; 129 killed so far
"I picked up the [deer's] blood trail and all of a sudden, a
wolf ran by," Saenger told the Pioneer Press. "It wasn't even 40 yards away. It scared the
crap out of me."
