In a Hungarian legend the Hungarian horsemen followed a deer (they wanted to hunt it down) that showed them the way to their future homeland.

I think it's from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, when Ron and Harry follow the deer patronus to get the sword (which is Goblin treasure kinda)

Also in Narnia, when they hunted the White Stag (which was said to grant you wishes if you catch it).
