Bradley Spencer of Port Gibson, Mississippi asked the question last week...is it him or is this doe pregnant? Also, another hunter said obviously it is pregnant but the real question is...does it have horns?
Yes, she is pregnant and most likely a late breeder being further south in the state. Mainly south of I-20 does are dropping as late as September and October.
Every now and then a doe can produce antlers. This is a result of her having excessive testosterone in her system. Her antlers will typically stay small and will not cycle and sheds like those of her male counterpart. Here is an article that explains this a little better. Doe With Antlers - Doe With Horns?
