This is the best picture I have of this buck. Do you think he is in velvet? If so, he is putting on a great deal of antler early. My other bucks are just now dropping their antlers.

It appears to me to be just a heavier horned younger buck. The sun angle and glare make him appear to be in velvet but I think he is hard horned. If you zoom in you can see several broken points.

Also his hocks are stained. So he has to have been in hard horns in order to rut.

Stag or not in velvet.... He could not have new antler growth like that at this time of year.
