Well today I looked out my window and had 3 non velvet bucks in my yard. Could not see a bit of velvet on any of them. This is in Northeast Pa.

Bake, make sure you hold off if you see that guy. He still needs another year.

This guy was stripped clean on Monday August 28th. I don't think I have ever seen one that early hard antlered.

Does the Velvet coming off seem like it's a little early this year. Here in Northeast PA all the buck I've seen this past week had no velvet. That's 5 buck with no velvet. I seen velvet on till about the 3rd week of September. So far none.

I pulled cards on my cameras today, 3 different places, 5 different bucks, all still in full velvet on the 15th of September. I have never seen them stay in velvet this long.
