Default Sheds Question

Got a picture of a deer on my trail camera the other day. First glance it was a doe, but on second look, other than it being a big doe it also looked as if it had already shed its antlers. In my part of Va the bucks usually wont shed for atleast another 3-4 weeks. I was wonderin if the drought could have had some bearing on the bucks dropping their antlers early? i'll post a pic. on here as soon as i can.

old bucks and bucks that were stressed out in the rut or winter will shed their antlers as early as december, most other bucks will drop all within 2 weeks of each other and still subject to the conditions of weather and how rough the rut was.
