Antler growth?

Postby JAY B » Fri Jun 14, 2019 5:00 pm

What’s some thoughts on the horn growing process as far as some bucks growing more rapidly than others but topping out the same? I have seen pics of bucks from this week that are just splitting at the g2/main beam and then I have seen some with 3 standing tines. I wonder if genetically some just grow slower and longer and some just grow fast and top out early?

Antler growth?

I don’t have much experience with it but I had a deer last year that was way ahead of any other deer at this point and he finished way ahead of any deer I’ve ever had on camera.

I don’t have the pictures on my phone and may not have any saved but you knew in early June was gonna make a good deer.

Anltergenesis begins when a buck sheds. So if a buck sheds earlier than others than technically speaking, growth begins sooner than the other bucks.

I checked my cameras last weekend and was thinking the exact same thing, good question
