Bucks in Velvet

Recommended Posts

I hunt down in SE MN. I talked to one of the farmer's sons down there today and he said he saw a buck in velvet this past weekend when he was plowing. The earliest I have seen one is when we were turkey hunting down there during the 2nd week of May about 4 years ago.

Anyone else seen one this early before is he telling me a story?

Some bucks if the hurt their genitals will not shed their velvet and carry it all year this might be the case here because I have never seen a deer in velvet before late june early july.

i dont think its a story, and yes although some deer never shed their velvet, its extremely extremely rare. I have seen bucks in velvet in April, not much to the size of the antler, but a very distinct bump of velvet coming outta their head. Probably an early shedder. more deer than ya think actually shed in december, its been 4 months since they shed, pretty obvious that they would start to re grow the next seasons set of antlers..

I saw one with velvet knobs today even, and then last week, one stil carryin both sides. funny how it works.

some bucks still have their headgear where i hunt, seems too early for antlers to start growing, but maybe not

I've had my trail camera out in the spring and I'd have to go check the dates, but I remember clearly seeing antlers growing in April.

I can see the new bumps forming on some of the bucks on my camera as of last week. In another week or so, they should really be poking out.

    • Whatever trades they might make won’t be to make a run. It’s going to be to rebuild. I guess there’s still some interest in Dozier from a couple teams, but otherwise, we don’t have much trade value in anyone. I’m just still hoping we finish .500.
    • The popular speculation is that the lakers are taking this season “off”, and waiting until next year to sign a big name or 2, one of which could be Butler. Personally, I don’t think there’s any chance Butler re signs with the wolves (he already turned down the first offer), as long as Wiggins remains on the team! And at this point, Wiggins is untradable. 
    • do agree, like your thoughts...
    • Yeah, none of the recipes say to pre-cook the potatoes but I think I might do it next time or else just open the packets and throw the shrimp in at the end. I was surprised though that the shrimp was good and didn't seem too over cooked. I think the key is to make sure to use raw shrimp not pre-cooked.
    • A lot of talk about a lot of nothing...until it is actually something! 🤔😏  As long as Thibs is here I believe that Jimmy has  chance to stay.  If Jimmy were to leave I would be surprised if he stayed in the west but if he did matching him up with LAbron would be a tough duo to build around.
    • A lot of good looking recipes on Old Bay's s i t e : Old Bay Recipes
    • I too am going to try that, done it with burger before.  I think with shrimp I'd maybe pre-cook the taters some, half way??  then cut foil cause shrimp cook super fast!!  thanks for the idea!!   and old bay is a must on that!!!
    • Thanks big d, I wanna give it a shot as well!!
    • The recipe I sort of followed said to cook it for 15-17 minutes at 350 but it took about 25-30 minutes to get the potatoes done even though I sliced them thin.   It's worth a try. We do a shrimp boil sometimes when we go camping with a group. I do it in the turkey pot and follow the recipe from Old Bay seasoning w-e-b-s-i-t-e except I like to add some chicken as well. It is very good and everyone loves it. 
    • How long and what temp did you cook this? Looks really good I want to give it a try now.
