The drought is OVER in my primary TN hunting area, but maybe not all of TN. (And more hard rain this morning!)

But seeing that it's been "nipped in the bud" now over much of TN . . . . .Was the late spring drought enough to cause much harm to this year's antler growth?

At least in my hunting area (which did not experience as severe a drought as many areas), I say "NO" (for Stewart Co.), particularly since antler-growing should be essentially over before we could have another severe dry spell. So considering 2006's bumper acorn crop and mild winter, I'm still expecting all ages classes to have better than normal antler growth for 2007.

How's it looking now in your area?
