    I found a dead 6 point buck yesterday which had been in an RTA on my ground, antlers were well grown and in velvet. Seems sods law that any decent bucks i get on my land end up getting hit by cars..

    This is normal for Roe.

    I posted about this a week or so ago but got no replies. I've got a big lad sporting a nice 6 point set already 4" above his ears. Also attended an RTA on Christmas day and he had a nice 4 point set a couple of inches above his ears, it certainly seems like they're early? Will have to see when hey stop growing and start to shed, fingers crossed they've got lots of growing still to do!

    Been seeing the odd buck sporting well grown in velvet antlers for two or three weeks now seems a bit early to me if we got weather like last year minus 10+ I think they may get a frostbite problem !!

    Possibly a little early , but then some cast early, its not unusual

    Two years past this huge buck was like this in mid January. He was cleaning his antlers at the end of february

    watched a buck before christmas with a good 6 point head well above the ears and also thought it was a little early for that much growth.
