INDEPENDENCE COUNTY, Ark. – Danny Beaver was watching and waiting to bag his first buck of the season.

“It come out and it’s about 356 yards right there,” Beaver told KARK.

Beaver took a shot and hauled off his kill, but soon realized he had something very different on his hands.

“We had it hanging up and whenever we started, he said, ‘This ain’t what it’s supposed to be,” he said.

Beaver realized that he shot and killed a doe with antlers and immediately went to a game warden’s house.

Arkansas Game and Fish says hormone abnormalities have something to do with a doe growing antlers.

“I’ve heard about them, but I’ve never dreamed of seeing something like that,” he said.
