I could go out as soon as the first or fifteenth of August for deer with a bow, but I don't think they are still hanging onto their velvet that late. I could be wrong, on that one....but think not...
Good luck on yours Tim.... smile.gif
i think antler velvet is like the rut and antler growth, they vary with the region. i always see bucks with antlers out west before i see them in the south and i see hard horns out west before the south but i see bucks in north western florida and southern alabama chasing does well into february.most of our deer killed during bow season and south carolinas opening month have at least some haging velvet.
