checked the cams and caught this bachelor group..sure beats the 3000 other pics of swine.
When do they normally shed their velvet in your location? They are usually hard horn 1st-3rd week of October here. Just curious because those deer seem to be pretty big already compared to what I would see here.
They're usually all hard horn by early Sept. Sometimes earlier if we get some and a cool snap. I was watching mature bucks chase does the last weekend of Sept when bow season opened last year. Typical rut runs from anywhere from mid Oct- Thanksgiving. Had deer still with headgear in late March.
I see some split brows!

He should eventually have 3 on each and g2 kickers. I'm at least going to lay off that one for 2 more years.
Yeah we have some with antlers still in early May. Our rut here in SE Alabama is in January and February so I guess that's the difference. Also a 130" deer here is a monster. You've probably got 130 inchers behind every tree and bush! Some nice looking bucks!
I usually have a handful of 130" deer every year. A lot that have the potential to be that but as they get older and tighten down their range I quit getting as many pictures of them. I'd imagine we're pretty similar to SE Alabama b/c of available browse.
