One Manly Doe


Deer hunter Howard Becker is getting some odd looks when he tells people about his latest kill: a 28-point doe. Part of the shock is because the male bucks normally grow antlers; not the does.

Also surprising is the size of the antlers. One estimate tallied up this doe with 28 points. Each point represents an antler that branches out one inch or more from the deer's head.

An official with the Missouri Department of Conservation called a deer with 28 points a very rare occurrence, reports the Associated Press.

Becker says he was within sight of his home when he shot the doe. And he says that is where he's preserving the antlers and hide.
