    Muntjac in hard antler

    I have been out all weekend looking for Fallow bucks and although I haven't seen any; I have come across a few munties, yesterday I came across 3 bucks in 20 minutes, 2 of which were in hard antler although only just cleaned off. Has anyone else noticed the bucks have started to clean off yet?

    The munty bucks I saw on Sunday were all still in velvet, but I'd expect to start seeing them clean in a week or two.

    It is not unusual to see Muntjac Bucks in hard antler throughout the year.

    I have shot many a medal quality head during the summer, sure most are in velvet but some of them dont read books!

    Shot a 2 year old in tatters at the weekend, and a 4-5year old in hard anler a month ago

    The one I took last week was around 2 years old and was completely clean, the other I saw out of velvet was about the same age going by the comparative size of the antlers.
