My wife and I were hunting in Cotulla the last couple of days. Yesterday morning we had corned a sendero and were just watching to see what would come in. We noticed the young bucks were aggravating the does and being a general nuisance. About 30 yds from us, a doe was being followed by another doe. We thought this odd until we looked closer and noticed this doe had a package. We looked extra careful to see if there might be spikes or buttons on the head but this deer was a total slickhead and she/he had a pecker. We do want to take this deer out of the herd but have to be careful we're shooting the right one. I have seen does with horns but has anyone seen a deer such as this? My wife is no stranger to whitetails as she has been involved with TTHA and TDA and comes from a strong hunting background but she has never seen this before either.

Interesting, OP. A horny, hornless buck?

I have never heard of it before, but I'd bet it isn't a 1st. Why didn't you shoot it right then when you had her/him pegged?

Years ago in my native CO I show what I thought was a big cow elk during the muzzleloader season. When I rolled the "cow" over I saw it had danglins. The top of the skull where the pedicle for growing antlers should be was really soft and kind of spongy. Normally I boned out elk and left evidence of sex on part of the carcass but I couldn't do that in this case so I halved the carcass and left the head attached. I had a game biologist check it out and he said it was just some sort of defect in the animal. I wonder if the same thing is true of the deer you saw?

That was our intention. It followed the doe into the brush and a few minutes later 5 more deer popped out. We tried to ID the same deer again but couldn't at the time. Next time we go down, he will be hunted very hard.

Got ya, I can see where that would make it a PITA, not like you can line them up and do a "herd check"

As soon as I or she gets him, I'll post a pic on here of him. Shes deadly with her 22-250. She nailed a coyote Thursday at 225 yds. I was impressed.
