Although rare, female whitetail can sometimes grow the antlers that are typical of the male of their species. On Friday, December 2nd, 2011, a doe taken in Illinois probably showed most bucks who was king of the woods – possibly shattering a world record too.

While hunting near Mount Erie, Illinois, farmhand Richard Lomas took what he thought to possibly be the best buck of his life during the second part of the state’s gun season. Imagine the shock when the “buck” he walked up to turned out to be a giant non-typical doe!

The female deer is said to have 30 scorable points including a droptine off her right main beam still covered in velvet. Her estimated age is 4 ½ years old. No information on her score is yet available.

This is not the first big non-typical doe ever taken in the prairie state either. A 23-point doe previously fell to hunter Mike Lock while hunting in Fulton County. Bass Pro Shops currently owns that deer, purchased for an undisclosed amount.

The staff at the Hunting Network congratulates hunter Richard Lomas on a deer so rare, it without question, should be considered once in a lifetime. Congrats again Rich!

This dear would be a much greater "prize" if left in the wild where it belongs and not hunted down. Something you didn't create, but rather killed, is nothing to be proud of.

First, it's deer, not dear. Use proper language if you're correcting someone. I doubt it was known to be an anomoly of nature when the shot was taken. A thought out, or even more descriptive rationale would be better than what you posted here.

Stephanie your ignorance astounds me. This deer obviously had some sort of genetic defect. It is better off being taken out of the herd, rather than passing on its bad genes. Now go eat some tofu.

Stephanie the animal was most likely taken for food the fact that it had antlers was just a bonus for the hunter, since antlers arent edible it would give a trophy to the hunter, the meat of the animal would be processed and used to feed his or her family, leaving little to waste. Hunting a deer is no different then eating the beef, pork, fish , turkey, or chicken from the grocery store, in fact many rural stores sell deer meat as well

You have to think about it this way too...some places the deer are really over populated and then they run out in traffic...I would rather thin the population out just a bit than hit it on the highway killing it and possibly myself or someone else..should we leave all the other edible animals go too and all become vegitarians...its a part of life

Stephanie, You should find some other websites to visit, as your views are not welcome here.

The above doe never produced any offspring Stephanie, all she did was take food away from the healthy deer that contribute to the deer herd.

The ignorance of our society absolutely blows me away. Stephanie, our dear friend... I'm happy you felt entitled to give us your feedback, although I promise you we don't care and wish you'd find somewhere else (like your local Starbucks) to share them with someone else.

Stephanie, The stupidity of what you said just blows my mind. People like you are why women should not have the right to vote, or freedom of speech for that matter. Stop wasting your time on your computer and stay in the kitchen where you belong.

Nice one Ethan! They'll never know that you're actually a tree-hugging spy just commenting here to make the rest of us look bad.

Ethan, just because ignorant people like stephanie dont value hunting doesnt mean all women dont. I personally love to hunt and dont have a problem what so ever with this doe being taken out, i think it was actually best. A little more courtesy would be appreciated, and please keep your negative opinions about women to yourself, we're not all the same.
