Hey, BSK, and anyone else willing to chime in . . . . .
What do think about this year's antler growing conditions, particularly along the Western Highland Rim?

My territory just a little north of your place had a much better crop of red oak acorns than was originally thought, mild winter, and food supply so far this spring is just unreal. Just hope we're not getting too much rain, as if this keeps up, may drown the fawns!

Otherwise, believe we're going to grow some way above average antlers, and can't wait to starting seeing the evidence in a couple months or so.

Do not know anything about this, but I saw two bucks the other day, both of their spreads were just inside their ears and they had nice looking brow tines. Hopefully they will be bigguns!

Hope he chimes in. Maybe some info about the Cumberland Plateau area.

So far, the antler growing conditions have been exceptional. But June is the top antler-growth month, so we shall see...

I agree, Wes. Many red oak acorns to carry them through in our area. I love wet springs. Our select cut areas are booming. Plenty of fresh lush foliage. Hope it sticks around for a while

The long-range climate forecasts I've seen suggest a cooler and wetter first half of the summer, although the second half may be hotter and drier.

All I can say is "so far, so good".
If we're just somewhere near "seasonably" normal for the remainder of antler-growing, I'll be very happy with the weather. \:\)

May the best month begin . . . . . .
With a nice spring-like shower. \:\)
As the month of May ends with a nice spring-like shower.

Yes, this is exceptionally good, so far, at least on the Western Highland Rim.
