Buck or Doe??

This weekend while me and a buddy were out scouting some prime turkey hunting grounds....we stumbled on to quite a few deer..but one in paticular caught my eye....I seen a deer that still had antlers...I'm pretty sure it was a doe but.....would a doe shed the velvet from it's antlers.....it's horns were still really brown and looked good..only a 2X3..had two small yearlings following......I know the area holds deer of a hermaphrodite variety cause I shot a 2 point white-tail doe with one horn here about 6 years ago then 2 years later another guy shot a 5X5 mule deer..and this year our neighbor shot a 3 X4 white-tail doe..my 2 point and the 5X5 Muley had velvet still but the others didn't.....could it be???

Hermaphrodite deer...given all the discussion about gay hunting partners, this should be interesting.

Very interesting. Wish I knew the answer.
Is it possible that does with antlers don't shed ??. Butif that could be the case, wouldn't it be "horns" as opposed to "anlers".

And by the way, isn't "hermaphrodite" politically incorrect?

I can see the headline now: GAY HUNTING PARTNER MOUNTS TRANSGENDER DEER.

Maybe a weirder headline would read:

"TRANSGENDER DEER MOUNTS ITSELF"

I saw a buck on April 6th this year that still had one antler on. Maybe it just didn't drop them yet.
