Trophy buck? Not quite.
West Salem, Ill., native Richard Lomas shot this 30-point whitetail at Richard Knackmuhs Farm near Olney, Ill., over the weekend.
What makes this deer so special? It’s a female. That’s right, a 30-point non-typical doe. Talk about your freaks of nature.
â€śI would say thatâ€™s the biggest, baddest doe ever taken in Illinois,â€ť Tim Walmsley, author of Trophy Whitetails of Illinois, told the told Heartland Outdoors.. â€śMike Lock had a big 23-pointer with no beams in Fulton County years ago that was a lot like this one. But this one has even more stuff. Bass Pro Shops owns the Lock deer.â€ť
Locals estimated the deer to be somewhere between 4 1/2 years old. The doe also featured a drop antler still in velvet and did not appear to have ever given birth.
What do you think? Is this the weirdest whitetail you’ve ever seen?
