Default First Antlers!

Hey guys i was out turkey hunting the other day and a buck wandered in to my decoys and he had three inches of antler with little forks already! Gave me the bow season itch! Anyone else seeing any?

The larger bucks actually have browtines and beams to the ear tips already. You can check out the Trail Cam Forum right here on this site and see a few dandy bucks from the past couple of weeks.

I am in SE Alabama. As late as phots of 4-18 off mytrail cameraswhihc are scattered across the 3150 acres I hunt had several shots of bucks that had not yet shed (spikes through a few pretty nice 8-9-10 points). I am guessing from the photos, about 20 different bucks.Not unusual for down here.

Last round of camera down loads, latest dated 5-15, a total of1156 shots ...lots of big bodies in the bunch, but no antlers. So I am pretty confident that the boys have now shed.

None of these latest shots showednew growth.
