Must have been a bad, or not so bad winter there this year.. how ever you want to look at it. Talked to a buddy of mine today and he said he saw an 8 pointer with still one side of rack left around the second week of March. Anyone see any deer with racks that late before?

I always believed that the younger deer drop antlers later in the Spring and I have seen some giant deer in January without their antlers.

I imagine on a good food year (which we had last fall) the younger bucks grow larger racks. So a two year old buck could sport a pretty nice rack and keep it through March.

Yo, LIL JOHN!!!!! where are you? What's your take on this?
