I will expect to see on before next Friday on cams here. I have every year since 2012. A lot of the ones are shedding their summer hair coats and that means the velvet will come off right after the new fall coat is in.

None here yet as of this morning. If we get some rain early next week there will be at least one that will shed his velvet here.

We have one on camera now in Clay County that has lost his velvet


Don't pass the first day of the season what you'd be happy to shoot the last day of the season.

First hard horn on cams this year. As a matter of fact it is the same buck that was the first on trail cams last year in hard horn and at the same feeder. Within 2 days of the same day as last year.

One of my old regulars showed up tonight. First time I have seen him this year and the first one I have seen to lose his velvet. They still look red and raw. All his buddies still have theirs. Sorry the photo is not better.
