OCONTO COUNTY, Wis. – Wayne Douville says he had the hunt of a lifetime recently.

While deer hunting in Wisconsin, Douville says he shot and killed an eight-point buck, or at least he thought he did.

“When we hung him up to dress him out, we found out that he wasn’t a buck,” said Douville.

According to WLUK, the eight-point doe weighed 180 pounds.

“This is the trophy of a lifetime. I said to my wife last night, you could live 10 lifetimes and not have this happen to you,” he said.

Officials at the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources say the doe with eight-point antlers occurs because it had higher levels of testosterone, adding that it was probably a one in 100,000 chance.
