    That is wicked cool! Never knew a doe could have antlers.

    On a side note, don't let any of your liberal friends know your daughter shot a transgender deer, they will have kittens and we don't need any more stray cats.

    It's pretty common actually. This is why its called "antlered or antlerless"
    I killed a spike once than turned out to be female.

    Oklahoma proposed changes.

    9. 800:25-7-52. Deer- primitive firearms (muzzleloading) • Commission may by resolution establish muzzleloading season bag limits up to 6 deer, no more than one antlered.

    10. 800:25-7-53. Deer - gun • Extend deer gun season to 23 days. • Commission may by resolution establish deer gun season bag limits up to 6 deer, no more than one antlered.

    I'm sure the existing regs say about the same about antlered deer they are just changing the total quantity. My question is are they subliminally acknowledging the fact there are a high percentage of doe with antlers?

    If you take an antlered doe you are done taking any more antlered deer for that season?

    IN MY OPINION, if you shoot an antlered doe, you really thought you were killing a buck, so yes, it should count as your antlered deer. “Legally”, you shot a doe, so it shouldn’t count as your “buck”.:anyone:

    The way I understand the proposed rule change, you would just be able to fill all 6 tags in muzzleloader and/or rifle season now. The combined season limit is still just 6 total, but it would give more leeway how you filled your tags.

    Pretty much correct, it's written antlered/antlerless because a small small percentage of does will have antlers. According to the biologist i talked to today it's around one in 10-20k in Oklahoma. I talked to a ranger last night since we tagged it as an antlered buck and it's actually a doe just to make sure I didn't need to edit anything.
    I guess that's why turkey regs talk about bearded hens, it's not common but it does happen regularly enough for them to simplify things...

    I hunt in Kansas, they have a one buck a year policy, my tag that I get is an either sex tag, but I can buy additional antlerless tags
