Interesting! I've seen a few other examples in magazines. They usually have pretty nice racks (or lesser specimens are not published).

It is a bit sexist to talk about females with nice racks. This is plainly a transgendered deer whose mommy told her it was okay to be a buck.

Wow cool!
In my state, you would probably be in big trouble for shooting a doe, antlered or not. Nevermind that it was an accident and you had no way of telling it was a doe🙄😂

Could one interpret that in more than one way? ;)

Rats! Poppy beat me to it.

Really? Every tag I’ve ever had (granted I’ve only hunted in six states) said “Antlered” and “Antlerless”, not “Buck” and “Doe”. I think they do it that way to avoid the late fawn issue.

We don't have any kind of hunting on does here. I looked at some pictures and the older deer tags do not specify sex or antlers. I am not sure of this year's tags but I think they may be the same.

About 15 years ago a friend of mine came back to the hunting cabin to get me to help him load up a deer.
What did you get?
Not sure, a doe with some antlers.
No way.
Although it had a few points it was a giant mass that resembled a small head of cauliflower.
Weirdest thing I've seen but it had all the doe plumbing.

I saw a 4 point doe killed in Hickman county KY in the early 1990's. I don't remember exactly what year but it was what we call a basket 4 here in eastern NC. Just a nice 4 pointer with a fork on each end but no brow tines.

Especially if the hunter does what our buddy back in IL did: He had the taxidermist mount the rear end in addition to the head/shoulders mount. Hung the front in the living room, and the back end on the shared wall in the kitchen. It was startling to walk in the doorway from LR to kitchen, only to see the back end of Bambi dangling there. LOL
