I’m getting some pics of developing bucks In velvet. So exciting to see them start to materialize, especially my known bucks.

Let’s see yours!

Here's my best one. Was still in velvet when I arrowed him on Oct. 3. He was easily the biggest bodied mulie I've ever killed. He also had no testicles.

I've never saw a buck that far ahead in June. Pat how do you like the Delta Base? The kids give me a couple for fathers day.

From: Hackbow
28-Jun-22
t-roy....I thought the same. I don't spend as much time learning about bick bucks as you and others do. Are you aware of mature bucks that will finish growing appreciably earlier in the year than others? I was shocked when my son sent that picture. It looks like the height to width ratio is closer to the end than 2+ months away.

It's always interesting to see how they develop at vastly different rates. I have seen some that are nearly done by the end of June and others that really put on the inches toward the end of July and in to August. I have no early growers this year so still waiting to see what a couple develop into.

Cali season starts on Sat. They have an Archery Only tag that i get every year. It allows you to hunt through all the gun seasons as well. Thats not advisable in this state. I have anotrher tag for Nov as well. That means i can hunt from July into Dec and can take 2 deer. Its tough huntin for sure. Good Luck everyone this year.

Not sure how this ones going to turn out. I think good. Northeast Pa, on June 2nd. I need to go up and check. But try not to leave to big of a footprint. I about 2 weeks I'll check again. All my other cams I just put out 2 weeks ago. This deer pic, I put the camera out in turkey season, mid May. Don't even look to of turned inward yet. So hoping.

From game cam on 7/6. Just 12 days after pic posted above. Looks like he's still growing, but guessing there can't be much increase left.

The buck on the right in photo had two main beams on his right side last year. Looks like he will again.

BTW, these are OK deer.

Ike, It’s a cool spot. A pinch point between a big cattail marsh and a river. Safest way to hunt it is access it from the river. But it needs an easterly wind and prevailing winds are NW.
