A hunter took home a two-for-one deer during archery season.

Mike Lewis was bowhunting in Nodaway County, in the northwest corner of Missouri, when he shot an antlered buck that had its own accessory attached - an antlered skull.

"The deer (Lewis) harvested still had the skull and antlers of another deer locked in its rack," according to Missouri Department of Conservation's post on social media in early November.

Lewis contacted county agent Kris Smith about legally possessing the extra deer skull and antlers and was approved.

Archery season continues through Jan. 15, 2023. Hunting permits covers two deer of either sex. Only one antlered deer may be taken before Nov. 12.

You may take only two antlered deer during the archery and firearms deer hunting seasons combined, according to MDC.
