    Just got a call from a reliable source that he saw 5 bucks together in his field. 3 of them were out of velvet and pretty nice sized 8 and 10 pointers. Said that he looked out his window when he saw white moving around the field. Grabbed the bi-nocs and spotted the racks. Has anyone ever heard of deer this soon being out of velvet? :! BC
  2. Not likely. Sometimes the sun can play tricks on the eyes. I've seen it before too, where it looks like hard horn but it's not. If it was one, there would be the chance of a hormonal imbalance. However, there's no way there were three of them out of velvet a month or more early.

    That is pretty close to what I said but he swears up and down they were hard horns. Only thing I figured was that they were all related and all screwed up some how and it was genetics.:confused:
  4. I saw a buck along the interstate wall taking a asphalt nap and he was in full velvet. That was yesterday.
  5. I agree with what has been posted - too early. I would think it was the angle or the sunlight like Magis mentioned that made it appear to be gone.

    Usually it is around first week of September when I see hard racks around my area.
  6. What him said. too early

  9. I saw 2 yesterday in field off of 71 and they both were still in velvet. Seeing them two bucks really gave me the itch to get out in the woods.
