Thats pretty similar to whats goin on in southwest ohio. some of the big guys still have headggear too. which worries me a little as to how much growin time they will haveLast camera check had bucks with 2 inches velvet. And some with none. And some with horns still. That was April 1st
Actually you have it backwards...This is all interesting stuff. So if anybody has an explanation please share.
My Understanding is:
Health is the single most reason for shedding early.
and Testosterone levels start the shedding process but usually occurs the same time every year.
Maybe with no stress and lots of late born doe fawns. ??
Not enough bucks to breed the fawns causing extended breeding season.
