Missouri bowhunter harvests two deer with one shot

A Missouri bowhunter has been credited with the harvest of two antlered deer with one shot.

Although Mike Lewis shot only one deer, the buck carried the skull of another buck in its antlers, according to the Missouri Department of Conservation. The agency explained:

“Bowhunter Mike Lewis legally harvested two antlered deer in one shot during archery season. The deer he harvested still had the skull and antlers of another deer locked in its rack!”

The MDC continued: “Mike contacted Nodaway County Agent Kris Smith after recovering the deer and asked for a wildlife disposition to legally possess the extra deer skull and antlers. What a find!”
