The fawn wandered out onto icy water near Smith Point County Park in Shirley on Sunday afternoon.
The deer fell through the ice and got stuck.
A team of Suffolk County Marine Bureau Officers used a sled and a rope to reach the deer. They carefully lifted the animal out of the 40-degree water and pulled it back to shore.
Officers transported the deer to an animal rescues shelter.
