They're gonna be best friends for life, we just know it.

17-year-old Isaac Carter was driving home with his family in Traverse City on Sunday when he saw a poodle and a deer chasing each other in somebody's yard.

The family pulled over so they could watch. The dog's tail was wagging and the deer was running circles around it, and they both seemed to be having a great time.

And now, the irony - Isaac and his dad had been out hunting all morning...and came home empty-handed.

Personally, we think that the memory of seeing the dog and doe playing will be just as great as if he bagged his own deer.
