Out of curiosity, when do deer in velvet typically stop bone growth? does it slow in the later summer months, or do they grow right up until the velvet falls off? I guess my game cameras will answer the question for me if I'm lucky.

Big bulls are pretty much done growing by this week. The smaller bulls will still grow a little longer.

That's when the velvet comes off. You'll find the big bulls are pretty much done growing by now.

Here you go. Old pics everyone’s seen before but look at the antlers and look at the dates. All the same bull. He didn’t change much at all from early July to let August.
