I was told that the more the rub the darker the get. I wonder it there is any truth to that scratch

According to a wildlife biologist:

"Antler coloration is determined by several things, including: (1) buck age (older, more dominant bucks make many more rubs on trees than younger bucks, therefore their antlers tend to be darker; (2) bark coloration of the predominant rubbing trees in a region; (3) genetics (some strains of bucks have light racks in their DNA while other have dark); (4) time of year (early in the fall “new” antlers are darker; later in the season antlers that have been exposed to sun and light longer and are more bleached out, especially in open habitats."

Honestly I'm not positive why some are darker by texasteach seems to make sense to me so I'd go with what he said.

Sounds perfectly reasonable. Thanks for sharing that... Great looking buck.
