Indiana hunter has remarkable encounter with friendly deer

Leon Champine had a close encounter with a very friendly deer while hunting this weekend.

INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) - An Indiana hunter had an unlikely encounter over the weekend.

Leon Champine posted video to YouTube showing a young deer walking right up to his group, even letting the hunters pet him. At one point, the deer tried to nibble on the fake leaves on one of the hunters' coats.

A short time later, a second deer showed up in front of the hunters, as well.

Check out the videos Champine says are "enough to melt the most hardened heart":

Luckily for the deer, the hunters were out looking for turkey.
