Do Your Deer Still Have Their Antlers? - 9
by Gerry Bethge
I received this fascinating photo the other day from a hunting buddy in northeastern Pennsylvania. The time stamp (March 13) is accurate. Considering that bucks on my New England hunting grounds began losing their racks in mid to late December, to see these Pennsy deer (probably less than 150 miles away) still sporting their headgear is an eye-opener.
It’s my understanding that the property these bucks are on is carefully managed for quality deer. With springtime upon us, I’m wondering what you folks are seeing out there? Seeing many bucks still holding on to their horns?
