I don't have any desire to shoot a buck unless 12 pointer or so, to make taxidermy price worth it. So, this morning I passed on a 8 pointer, who was out checking/refreshing his scrapes. I love doe meat, and my wife hates buckmeat. A very nice "doe" came along 30 minutes after the buck sighting so I shot it. All excited cause I promised my wife doemeat. Walk up to downed deer and I see 1 and 1/2 inches of antler. Looks like he was a 2/4 pointer that had both antlers broke off an inch and a half above the skinline. Had to telecheck it as antlered, and don't think I can lie to my wife and call it a doe. Has this suprise happened to most of you once or more???
