Hunter Finds Unique Prey

Posted:

If you found out that you have a birth defect that strikes one in 6000, it might be a cause for concern or it might just give you bragging rights.  This story is all about bragging rights for the deer hunter who shot a deer with beautiful 27-point antlers.

Now, here is the weird part- that whitetail deer with the great rack was not a buck...  it was a doe.  For Mike Smith, an avid hunter, it's a story for the record books.  Mike said that he, "...rolled it over and nothing...I couldn't find any male parts I guess.  I called the game warden immediately and he had the guy from Wildlife and Parks come and verify that it was a doe".

The rack, which measures 179 inches, has sixteen antlers on one side and eleven on the other.  One in every 600 doe will develop antlers but even then, they only grow to be about two to three inches long, which makes this catch even rarer.

The deer was near an alfalfa field outside Clay Center, Kansas.
