While the pedicels are visible on the mature bucks throughout the winter and early spring, there is little significant growth until now. This two year old shows promise and should develop into an eight-point or more with a beautiful spread. (He was a three-point last year)
Why Is He Pointing That Thing At Me?
Most bucks disperse from their home range or are killed in their first autumn with antlers. Luckily this animal was not a legal buck except for junior hunters and he did not disperse so he is still with the local herd. It is unlikely that he will remain through the summer, but time will tell.
