In Central Indiana two men were out turkey hunting recently and experienced something that they will never forget.

Leon Champine and Corey Cook were out hunting late in the afternoon and an unafraid deer approached them and it licked the barrel of a shotgun and allowed one of the men to stroke its neck.

In the video, it shows the deer, about one year old, wandering toward the camouflaged men who are hidden in the trees. The video shows one licking the barrel of a gun in the late afternoon sunlight.

According to WXIN-TV, Champine said "the young animals didn't have their mother with them to teach them what is dangerous. This was a once in a lifetime encounter."

Champine says he and his friends have a combined 50+ years of hunting experience and nothing like this has ever happened to them.
