Just got into using a trailcam and really haven't seen many deer in velvet to be able to relate antler growth. Can anyone take a look at these pictures and give me an idea of what I will be seeing around shooting season?

Im guessing a good 9 or 10 pointer and it looks like it will be about 18 inches wide. Looks like a good buck to me since its early in the season yet and there not fully grown.

How much more growth do you think is left at this point in the year? (tall wise)

2 1/2 year old, he clearly won't develop any more than 8 scorable points and won't be very tall at all. Looks to be about ear tip to ear tip wide. He'll be a decent buck..... in a couple more seasons.

Yea that deer looks to be about 2.5 years old. But not a bad buck. Possibly a shooter, Definitley a shooter in the years to come.
