Rare Fake Out: Missouri bow hunter harvested a rare doe
Missouri’s Kelly Moore has been hunting most of his life. This season, he had his eyes on one deer with a large set of antlers that he had been seeing on his trail cams.
He ended up seeing the trophy one evening and harvested it with his crossbow. However, he was in for a surprise when he hauled it out of the woods.
The 18-pointer was not actually a buck, but a doe.
A doe having antlers is a 1 in 10,000 chance. This case is extremely rare due to the amount of antlers it has.
“I’m going to take it to the taxidermist and try to get the ball rolling on that because there is special care needed for the velvet on the antlers and all that. I’m hoping maybe to be contacted by somebody to put it in a museum or maybe Bass Pro or something like that. It’s going to hang on the wall somewhere, even if it’s just in my house,” Moore stated, according to WILX.
