perfect quartering away shot at about 18 yards. you can see my lock-on in the pine tree behind this guy. couple questions - think they'll still be velvet in N. okaloosa in another 3 or 4 weeks? and do you think this dude's a 3 yr old? if the wife will cooperate that'd be fine first bowkill for her. weird looking young 7 pt. behind him is probably gonna walk this year.

My buck last year was still in velvet last year, and I am almost as far North Okaloosa you can get w/ out being in Bama. Got a good possibility it may still be in it. I have a small buck here at the house that is almostout of velvet so it will depend on a case by case...good luck to her on the kill, I'd love ta kill that un too!!!:letsdrink

Nice.

We've got a few that are still in velvet, some that are shedding and some that are done. all north of Milton.

I'd guess he'd shed by then but you never know.

Nice deer, butI am not convinced that it is a 3.5 year old deer. It may only be 2.5, which would make it a great deer next year.

Chances are he will start loosing his velvet within the next week or so. I got a picture of a deer starting to shed his velvet and Im just a little north of you.

thanks for the replies guys. i was kindahoping the velvet would be still be there, but it sounds like 2 1/2 more weeks, or longer, is too long. we'll keep our fingers crossed. maybe luck up like jason mentioned above.

i agree with the statement that he'll be a good deer next year. i was thinking he was 3 1/2 though. i think the buck next to him is 2 1/2. he's noticeably smaller but the rack is bigger than a 1 yr old would be. maybe i'm wrong though. could both be 2 and the 8 is just a bigger deer.

Hard to tell from the pic but when you get pictures of him & his velvet starts turning white then he is fixing to come out of it.
