Deer dropping antlers already?

by DallanC » Sun Jan 12, 2014 1:35 pm

Seen quite a few bucks now with dropped or partially dropped antlers. Seems really early still for so many to be dropping. I've seen bucks drop by Christmas Eve before, but generally most all bucks I can remember were packing well into Feb. I heard once that sick bucks will drop early but I watched a couple bucks yesterday (one fully dropped, the other with just 1 antler) walking around looking healthy and still having that "I'm a badass" attitude they get around rutting time, pushing deer around etc etc.

Kindof stumped why they would drop so early this year.

I guess it's not unseen, but it definitely is a bit out of the ordinary. I can't wait to go out there this January to see what's going on.
