rustynut,

Great pics. Maybe I never noticed bucks with horns this late cause I wasn't on this forum until August of last year, but it sure seems strange to me. Maybe there's someone out there with some insight.

Blessings.....Pastorjim

I can't really give much for as far as insight goes. I did shoot a buck a quite a few years ago that had a pale rack with a couple of broken tines and a split beam. I was assuming it was left on all year by the condition and the pale color of it. I also saw a moose one spring when coming back from fishing that was still carrying a rack. It was a large rack on it and I do not think it had dropped it either as it was mid May when myself and a friend saw it. I think sometimes they just do not loose them for some reason or another.

If it keeps them on for the next month I do not think it will loose them at all. This happens sometimes but, I really do not know why. It is supposed to be rare for this type of thing to happen though. I can not explain why they will from time to time but it does happen.. New antler growth should be starting right now in most cases so it's really anyones guess..

I thought early/mid april was when the last of the bucks lost their antlers. i don't think it's that uncommon for them to have them in the first week in april. i have pics a couple years ago of a buck in early april w/ antlers too. they'll lose them shortly.
