In September Nearly All Bucks Lose Their Velvet. It Does Not Happen All On The Same Day. Mother Nature Uses The “Trickle Method.”
Below is one of the “hanger on’s”. A Buck that still has velvet on its antlers.
This is the buck I labeled ‘Double Finger’ back in July. You can see those finger like points, one on each main beam. He’s been a fighter as you can tell by the gouges on his ears.
Here he is browsing on native vegetation.
He is done with the browsing and now is ready to move on.
Half an hour later we see three bucks that are have-nots, as in no longer have velvet on their antlers. I like to call pictures like this ‘Fathers and Sons.”
As it gets a bit later the gray buck walks out of the woods and continues along the edge of the woods.
I can’t help but wonder what the actual age of this buck is. His body is full and heavy, his neck is if still slim and his antlers are scrawny. But he is still a cool buck.
‘Double Finger’ took the walk along the edge of the woods in a different place.
He disappeared for several minutes and the showed up again, he was the last deer of the day.
