What The Hell Was That?

A few years ago I was traveling Howard Road that leads from Lexington to the old crossroads of Howard. Critter was riding with me and we were talking about our turkey hunt as we passed a sign that read INDIAN BLUFFS, PCBA. I thought it was just another rich mans hunting club at the time.
Looking out the window, I slammed on the brakes when I noticed a huge set of antlers moving on a pond leevee. I stopped, hell there were two giant sets of antlers!
I got my binoculars out and looked at the deer. Giant antlers, small bodies, spotted deer?, what the hell was I looking at? We watched the deer for 10-15 minutes and they finally worked their way back in the woods. I always wondered exactly what kind of exotic deer they were and then I saw this picture. I swear this is what I saw in the Mississippi Delta.

Fallow deer.

All over hunting preserves in the US. They can grow palmate antlers.
