Saw a spike with four does last year opening morning. The spikes were just straight and twisted like an antelope...ugly for a whitetail. I wondered if it might have been an antler doe...is this common...never saw a spike with a harem. And if it is common does it affect the quality or taste of the meat. Has to be a hormone thing.....The DNR guide here in IN list tags by antlered or non antlered....I was told just leave the head on till check in sex didn't matter if it had spikes....doesn't tell you much.
