antler growth

6 posts in this topic

for the most part, growth is almost over now. Some deer i have been seeing in trail cams have are about ready to start shedding velvet. the big boys may still be growing though, as i have a few darn nice bucks on camera and they have real rounded ends, kinda ball like, which means they are still growing. in the trail cam post, i thought i saw a buck already done rubbing off the velvet.

Yep for most part they are done growing. The antlers will be hardening and bucks will lose their velvet in late Aug and early September. I've always wanted to take a velvet buck on the bow opener but they are very rare.

    • What kind of heaters are you guys running? Do you guys have to build your wall out if using a direct vent? Since most of them are for 4 1/2" walls.

    • Ya the Bush's think our current media is essential, the same media that tells lie after lie, focus mostly on ratings instead of news & of course colludes with politicians and government to cover up those dirty little secrets they don't want out. Not sure we have ever had a truly free press and people like Bush Family and the Clinton's just love it.
    •   That might actually work for del if the generals happen to be Republicans or "right leaning independents"...

    • The fantasy is happening right now, the parties are already crumbling and people on both sides are flocking to outside candidates. This isn't some fluke, the parties are not going to straiten themselves out and suddenly get back supporters and clean up their acts. There time is at an end, who or what replaces them I don't know but change is in the air so I would try and embrace it.

    • Lets hope they are peaking early. Towes has been hot but he can't score on us at that pace forever, keep him in check along with Kane and I think we can take them. You aren't going to stop those two completely, the rest of the team isn't as deep as they have been during other cup runs so this is the year to take them out.
