KINGFISHER, Okla. - It's deer season in the Sooner state and one Oklahoma hunter has quite a story to tell.
Jeremie Hill, of Kingfisher, and his 8-year-old son went hunting last week and shot the 10-point deer 20 minutes into their outing, but they were in for a big surprise.
When they took it to Rodney Mueggenborg's farm to have the animal skinned and butchered for its meat they learned the deer was no buck. Instead it was a rare freak of nature.
"I freaked out," said Mueggenborg. "Like I said, I have been hunting 32 years and I've never seen anything like it before... It was a beautiful, healthy doe with horns."
Game wardens say the chances of finding a doe with antlers is one in 1,000 and usually happens because of a hormonal imbalance.

A terrifying string of events eased only by the heroism and quick thinking of local law enforcement. That sums up Tuesday, when a Tulsa police officer's split-second decision helped save a 5-month-old infant nearly killed in a high-speed chase.
