Gary Simons brought his two sons out squirrel hunting for the first time when the three encountered something incredible.
In the encounter, which Gary captured on video, a young buck walks up to the trio while they are sitting down. After a few sniffs, the deer begins licking the hunters.
The group remains sitting for several minutes, watching in silence as the deer continues to sniff and lick their jeans and clothing.
Finally, the deer withdraws, walking across the path to head further into the forest.
