Bucks in velvet are a common sight as June rolls into July. Nourished by the blood-rich velvet, a bucks antlers during the summer are growing quickly. But under the velvet they are soft and susceptible to damage. Things are looking good with these bucks so far.

The photo of the buck facing away from the camera was the “before” while the photo on the right is the “after.” Notice how the antlers branched out into points by late summer. Tina said the buck grew a 10-point rack by last fall and it was a regular visitor to her garden. She’s keeping her camera ready in case he returns this summer with a larger set of antlers.
