Hey just was wondering if anyone has experienced this before.When I was 18, I shot my first deer.It was when there wasnt a gender specific tag and we were allowed to shoot does.Without getting into a long drawn out story, I shot the deer thought it was a doe, but went to retrieve it and found a 2 point antler still in velvet on one side.Flipped it over to field dress it but it was definetly was a doe.Just curious if anyone else has seen this before?

About 10 or so years ago, I was sitting on this ridge and I looked over and 4-5 deer were walking in a row, parallel to me. I looked them all over and noticed spikes on one and and shot it. The animal dropped and to my surprise the horns were in velvet and lo and behold, a doe was lying at my feet!

This was the first and only doe that I have come across with horns but have heard it is quite common.
