Double Patch Whitetail

Submitted by Bo on 2/15/05 at 10:33 PM. ( ) 152.163.100.198

Is it rare at all ,or fairly common for a whitetail to have two distinct white patches on his throat? I have one this year that has two, separated by an inch and a half brown strip. They really stand out because the one starting under his chin is normal size and so is the second one which makes him white nearly to his brisket. It has made a beautiful mount, I had just not seen one with two distinct patches before. Thanks

Of the deer I get, they run about 1 in 4 though some of them have only faint patches while others are quite distinctive.

I rarely see anything like that here in northern Minnesota. Those that I have seen have been fairly small and not very distinct. Maybe one out of a hundred.

They are fairly common down here in Texas. About the same description as George said.


I'd like to buy one, anyone know where?

I'd like to talk with someone who knows where I can get one of the double throat patch capes.

Email me next year and I'll look out for one. I had 4 this year in my spare hides, but I used one and sold the other 3 to a local taxidermist who'd screwed up several of his capes.
