Michigan Hunter Bags Potential Record Antlered Doe
By Dave Hurteau
On Monday, Michigan’s firearms opener, Jerry White of Allendale shot what he thought was a nice 10-point buck. But upon closer inspection what he did found—velvet on the antlers—and did not find—full-blown male anatomy—made his trophy far more rare than most. According to the video below from The Grand Rapids Press, White’s velvet 10-pointer may be the biggest antlered doe ever taken in Michigan. However, the actual sex of his deer is still being questioned by officials could remain a mystery. Another opening-day velvet buck, an 8-pointer, was shot by one Bill Yoder of Clarksville, but this one had complete male parts. Here’s the video and a question: Would you rather shoot 150-inch buck or a doe in a 120-inch rack?
