Pat and I were surveilling a field for night hunting activity when he got a radio call from the state police barracks in Orono. This was before game wardens were issued or had access to any sort of cellphones. The brief message was clear enough: Proceed to Bangor International Airport as there was a deer inside a vehicle near the terminal. We arrived within a half hour and found the vehicle. It was a small pickup. Both doors were closed and the windows were rolled up. There was no operator with the parked truck, but there, sitting on the front seat like the family dog, was one very live white-tailed deer.
