 My focus was a touch off, and resizing makes it worse, but still like the pic.

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.

 :yeah: I am also curious about elk. When do they typically stop growing? Saw this one on Saturday and was wondering how much more he's gonna grow if any. (Sorry for the poor quality. It's a Phone Skope Pic.)

We got the photo of the month contest going again and this month's theme is velvet bucks and bulls.

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