While muzzleloading this year in Kentucky, I had the misfortune of making a spine shot on a doe. As soon as she hit the ground she let out with a loud, for lack of a better term, roar. I have never heard a doe make this noise, nor have I ever heard anyone talk about a doe doing this. She was in a group of 6 other does. Was this some type of a warning for the others?
Congratulations on tagging a doe! I suspect that verbalization was out of distress or fear. It’s not a normal deer vocalization.
