When does the muntjac bucks loose their antlers?

Will the antlers still be on the heads when stalking roebuck 10th - 15th May?

Mature muntjac tend to cast their antlers at any time between May and July and re-grow them during the summer. However, ayoung buck’s first head has to be grown and fall into line with the adult cyclefor casting and re-growth.
So yes, you may well find munty bucks in hard antler during May. As with anything in nature, exact dates just don't happen as wildlife don't have calendars.
