    I got pics of a good 8 point this week and he was in full velvet and 3 days later he was clean as could be. I thought it was kinda early too but I guess he knows what he's doing more than I do.

    Had a 9pt on August 22 that had shed. Had a pic on my cell cam yesterday of a buck that had just shed and you could see blood still on his antlers.

    Wow, that is unusual, at least from my experience. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a buck whose velvet was shed before the first day of the season.

    Last year my big 8 shed late aug. I thought I saw a night pic that was shed but I couldn't see it clear enough as it was just at that time of day/night where pics aren't best.

    This guy was shed and completely clean by the 18th. Definitely the earliest I’ve seen one shed
