Re: is it early for antler growth?
bigbuck78: Some deer shed antlers in December of 2011 (last year) which is not normal. If this deer even shed in early January 2012, it would have well advanced antler growth.
The weather has been very mixed up, unstable the last couple of years, which may have caused things like this to happen.
In a recent post, I submitted a picture and video of a buck still carrying one antler as of 13th. April 2012. This is very rare for my area. About a month or more ago I submitted a video showing a buck with one antler on the same side. Coincidence, or is it the same buck??? I had one on another video using a camera and near the location showing a buck with small stubs similiar to the one on the right in the above picture you posted.
Thanks for sharing.
