Dewey was born on May 23, 2003. A DNA analysis proved that he was genetically identical to the donor, a buck that scored a 232 on the Boone and Crockett scale. He was cloned from tissue harvested from the skin cells of the hunted deer. Researchers at Texas A&M are studying his antler growth as well as following his offspring to measure their antler growth.
