I have one out of more than 30 that started splitting his main beam velvet two days ago. I expect 30% to be shedding hard by the end of the week here in north-central MO.

My farm is in PA and one of my bucks was completely clean this velvet! I don't see any problems with this, some simply lose their velvet earlier than others. The one that shed was perhaps one of the smallest in my buck pen but now that he is in hard antler he is scaring even my biggest away. I don't like this but there is nothing I can do.

Good luck the rest of the way.
