Probably another BS story but a rumor was started that a Hunter in Kentucky recently shot a 8 Point buck that turned out to be a doe. I don't have any pictures or details other than when he started to drag the deer out of the woods he discovered that it had no --lls but did have all the other doe organs. Has anyone else ever heard of does having horns? I'll try to find out some more details. Anyway, I was just wondering what everyone else thinks of such a story. Semper Fi, Steve. :)

Yep, it actually happens more commonly than many believe. There have been a few taken in my area over the last several years. The largest antlered Doe from this area was Kenny Locks monster, (taken near Canton) I think she carried a awesome crown with 24 points and most were long dagger points! Plus she weighed over 300#. A very impressive animal!!! This deer was featured in North American Whitetail magazine.

it was probably a buck that has been castrated some how or has a birteh defect or it coudl be a hermafordite deer,, its probably a hermafordite deer,
the deer was probably also in full velvet as well, usually these deer never loose there velvet and grow odd lookin horns at an extreme rate,

chase

My uncle shot a nice typical 8 pointer about 15 years ago that turned out to be a doe. He mounted it and it is still hanging in his house. She was in full velvet during gun season when taken and her tines are very sharp. Quite a trophy.

true story

Its true this does happen not sure exactly why. I saw a newspaper article and saw the mount of the deer at a local bow shop in Tahlequah Oklahoma. The wildlife department said it was something to do with hormones.

Yeah, I now remember why they put bearded birds on your turkey license. I killed a hen Turkey one time that had a 7" beard. That turns out to be quite common also. :eek: :eek: They're still fun to shoot!! :D :D
