We have some bucks starting to blacken up so the push is on the way!

I have one that is just about to break the skin. He lost his Buttons in early Feb. I have a Gladiator Buck fawn that still has his buttons.

We have some that are just starting to come up. Should be an interesting year. Of course we still have one holding both sides, and a couple that just dropped in the last couple days. Early growers or late growers, we won't know anything for a couple months yet. My favorite time of year.

We have 2 roosevelt and 1 rocket buck fawns showing about an inch of velvet.Seems kinda early as we had snow covering the pens again monday.Nashville back to ny and snow....I want spring!!

Mike it's funny you mention Roosevelt... he only lost his buttons about 10 days ago and has already put an inch up in that time and the mass will be unreal. And that nice 150" yearling he had last year is coming up probably 5"-7" circumference and 3" up already. That Holly girl I have left is a very similar breeding.

The bucks here are still holding on to their antlers. I am ready for them to drop.

yep! Sudden Explosion is out of his head.

I am assuming that for it to be antler growth, just like scoring it has to be at least 1/8"???

I have a 3 yr old that is showing about 3 inches out of his head. Last year he started early, but Petered out.

Still in a winter wonderland here! Not much in the way of growth.

I have a couple in the 140 class already at least until they shed.
