Default Fawn with Antlers??

Using my knowledge about deer Im 100% positive this cant happen but my friend who never lies told me that he saw a really small deer with spots on it and it had a 6 point rack. I know most of you are going to say that he is pulling my leg but he is not so what is going on with that deer.

Do you think it could have been a young fallow deer that got loose? The ones I have seen are smaller than whitetails and keep their spots.

This is what I was thinking.

What your friend discribed sounds exactly like a fallow deer.

Agreed. If you have fallow deer in your area, that is probably what *he saw.

I have seen fawns with small horns like 3" spikes and maybe a small point coming off but never anything like a 6 pointer.He must of had one too many that day.

yeah i've never seen fawns with a rack
not saying that it isn't possible, i'd probably have to go with some of these other guys guesses about the fallow deer. those seem the most logical

Guys,

If they are finding 600lb catfish in Asia and 40ft squid off the coast of Australia then why wouldnt it be possible to see a fawn with a six point rack?
