How long do antlers grow!?
How much more do antlers begin to grow? Are we 50% done with the antler growing time period or just starting or almost done? Below are some pictures from this week, I'm just trying to gauge how much bigger these guys will get."I have a passion for whitetail deer, not a passion for killing them. The fact that I deer hunt does not make me their enemy, but their guardian."

Depends upon the buck. Some will be pretty much done by July 15 and others are just getting really started. I think the majority are done by end of July.

Most bucks are done growing by the end of July and many tend to really take off during July. The bottom two you have pictures of still have quite a bit of growing left.Trust in the lord with all your heart; and lean not to your own understanding.-Proverbs 3:5

Like others said.. It varies. I had one still growing a little on August 8. When antler tips lose the shiny roundness they have finished antler growth.

I'm thinking it depends on the buck. I got pics of a wide 7pt and a nice 8pt on June 22nd, both will be really special if they have another month and half of growing to do!work hard.......hunt harder!!!

The majority usually stop growing on or around the first couple of weeks of November.

@TheQDMA: Deer antlers can grow an inch or more per day, making them the fastest normal growing tissue known to man
Just saw that tweeted by QDMA's twitter account. Interesting!"I have a passion for whitetail deer, not a passion for killing them. The fact that I deer hunt does not make me their enemy, but their guardian."
