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.
