Default Hard horned bucks?

Is getting to be that time of year! Just wondering if anyone has seen any hard horned bucks yet. If you have post a picture for everyone to see it! Can't wait to see the deer!

I haven't seen any myself, but 2 of my buddies have already seen 2 hard horns. Not one sign of velvet on them.

Saw between 15 whitetail bucks and about 25 mulies this past weekend. About 75% had shed the velvet already here in my neck of the woods.

I watched 5 whitetail bucks yesterday and 5 this morning in a field below my house, just outside Bozeman, MT. All of them were completely rubbed.

I don't think they've rubbed here where I live yet. I haven't got many pictures on my trailcam but I also haven't found any rubs.

All the deer on my cams were still in velvet as of this weekend, but Monday I had a small 6 pointed run out in front of my truck and he was completely out of velvet.

Had a nice 8 point ive been seeing now hard horned. Just rubbed his velvet off to. I have pictures of him Wednesday still in velvet and then Thursday night before I got to my camera I had pictures of him hard horned. Pictures aren't great of him hard horned, his rear end of is to the camera but he's definitely now hard horned. Great to see!
