Antlered doe

I had a doe on running around last fall with a pair of twins who had a single antler on the left side, maybe 4" long. This summer I have pictures of an antlered doe with a set of yearlings (spike and doe). The problem is that this doe has two velvet antlers which are both a few inches long. Do you think that she would grow another antler or do you think this would be a new deer. I can't imagine it being a new one myself but I never dreamed she would grow a second antler. She has no new fawns with her this year which is kind of upsetting. I think we may have a few too many coyotes. I never did get out before fawning season this year.

4 or 5 years ago there was one with two fawns hanging around my fathers place - she had 3-4 inch spikes, and they stayed covered in velvet. The last time I saw her I took a few pictures, it was in mid November and she still had velvet. I dont know if she shed them or what - never saw her again. I'll download a photo if I can find it. I have heard of them being shot with 6 and 8 point basket racks. Did the doe you saw last year keep velvet all fall?
I don't know how to post a picture on this topic, so I poseted it on the Gallery - the doe I was talking about in my post above- the photo was taken in mid November, and she had two fawns.
Yes you can see the nub pretty plain there -she looks like a good sized doe.
