    Nice looking buck but remember that velvet makes them look bigger than they actually are.

    I remember James Kroll saying he used July 4th as a memorable date he could "tell what a buck's going to be." Tines might get longer, beams longer, but you can tell basically how big a deer is by the fourth.

    From what I’ve seen through the years with trail cam pics on our place... that’s pretty much spot on.

    Biggest growth spurt is from mid May to mid June. By the first week of July ...width and general frame is set. Might add a little more tine length or beam length as mentioned...but growth is at a much slower rate compared to just a few weeks earlier.

    I also have a few deer that look almost done growing. I noticed last year that I had 5-6 deer shed in early January. These are the same deer that are almost done growing now. I think with the cold weather we had last winter that a lot of deer lost there antlers soon . So they began growing sooner.

    IMG_2680.JPG Date and time are correct. He has a lot more growth compared to the other deer on the farm. Don't think he will be a shooter
