    Matthews,
    I saw a smallish buck drown once that had been chased by a pack of dogs. I was deer hunting the edge of a swamp and a heard a commotion coming from the swamp. I waited and saw 4 does run by me. After hearing dogs barking and a deer bleating for several minutes and seeming not to move, I snuck up to find 4 dogs harassing a small buck. I ran the dogs off and waited for the exhasted deer to recover. The exhasted deer eventually slid into the water and drowned. This deer had hair missing where the dogs had been biting him (mostly the backs of his legs) and your drown deer had no marks on him. However, your deer may have been exhausted from running from some predators and couldn't make it across the water to excape. Just an idea.

    This deer tried to swim across Mt Island Lake on a clear fogless morning after I put an Easton Axis shaft with a Wensel Woodsman through both lungs. Needless to say it didn’t swim far but I did have to get my Kayak to retrieve it. I found out later in the day that Buckedup was catching bait 300 yards from it as I was going after the kayak. I’m glad he didn’t see it because he may have claimed it.
