Default Buck or Doe? Unicorn?

Okay guys, this is a weird question but I want your thoughts. On my trail cam I found a weird picture and can't decide what to think about it. This fawn and young deer are on it, the bigger deer has one horn and a fawn with it. Do you think it is just a young deer that happens to be with a fawn or is it a weird doe that is growing one antler? Or just a unicorn?

The "legal" answer is doe. But I do think the undercarriage is missing a few parts to be a male

Pretty strange. Could be a small antler there. Maybe a pre-pubescent buck that got growing off to a bad start?

Could be that it's one of those strange skin growths deer get that happens to be right where an antler would be. I had more deer with those on my camera this year than ever before.

I couldn't see the "hardware" well enough in those pics to say.

Yeah, no good pics of the hardware. Super odd for sure.

You can usually make out the pedicles on a button buck fawn by sept... and you can see them on both sides. Only seeing what looks like one, and with the age of the fawn... I still think its a female deer.

Maybe she identifies as a buck. Don't judge her!

I agree with Kinekilla--doe with skin growth, tumor, or something like that.

Cyst in my opinion. I have seen them on animals before. Nasty things, I have popped a few.
