Default 2015 buck

This year's buck, opening day of the rifle hunt. Raining all day. Shot him in his bed, 30-40 yards.

Nice pile of meat there trapper! That's 2 Wyoming deer on here with no velvet hanging (one white one muley) and pretty much dried hard. I guess your all's rut is going to kick in fairly early this year!

It is fairly the norm for them to be hard horned by now. I will occasionally see a few younger bucks with velvet still. Of the 13 bucks I saw yesterday, two were in velvet and the rest rubbed off. I did shoot a big typical a few years ago on September 15, and he was in velvet, but it was slipping and I expect he would've had it off in a day or two if I hadn't killed him.

I know a few of the "pros" fight hard for Wyoming tags because archery opens up so early and there's more chance of hitting a big guy in velvet. Never could figure the attraction there, even when I did trophy hunt I never really cared much for a velvet rack. But anyway, nice buck. Happy eating!
