    That’s not a buck!
    One Oklahoma hunter was recently in for quite the surprise when he realized the antlered deer he shot was not a male, but rather a female doe.


    Over the weekend, outdoorsman Chris Blades was on the prowl in Seminole County when he nabbed what he initially suspected to be “an extremely non-typical buck” that was, in fact, biologically female. Officials for the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation (ODWC) have since described the doe as "the deer of a lifetime."


    “Biologists say this can occur in an average of 1 [in] 10,000 does,” reps for the ODWC wrote on Facebook.


    “For this reason, regulations for deer are referred to as ‘antlered’ and ‘antlerless,’ not ‘buck’ and “doe,” the department said, sharing three images of Blades’ catch in a post that has since been liked more than 2,200 times.


    When contacted for comment, a spokesperson for the ODWC confirmed that Blades’ catch was a whitetail deer.


    Hunting blog Big Game Logic reports that while whitetail does do not typically grow antlers, it is possible for the female to grow them “under rare circumstances,” likely due to a hormonal imbalance.

    So the transgender craze has hit the deer herds too?

    Mine is not so well antlered but it was young. Looked through the scope a while to make sure I saw the one antler. It was maybe 75 yards out. The antler had very short hair on it like the one in picture. I had a doe permit anyway. It was late in the season and I had not been seeing much so I shot the smaller deer. Made quite an splash at the registration station. They registered it as an antlered deer. MN designates antlered deer to avoid issues with any antlered does.

    There is usually a few of those that show up in Missouri every year.

    In 2017 there was an 8pt taken.

    Kept the skull on mine and it did have a hard antler underneath the velvet. Never really considered mounting as it was not close to what the others show.

    I’m not surprised - after all, my wife wears the pants in the family.

    Long ago a friend of mine shot an antlered elk cow in Oregon.

    The antler was about 8" long and covered with fur but it was a legal elk at the time.
