June 14, 2016 – Trail cam photos show early antler growth
The deer are in their reddish brown summer coats and the antlers are now in the velvet stage and growing daily. I was able to make it out on the trail last Sunday and retrieved a few more trail cameras. Most of the pictures are coming from potential new areas as it’s important to keep looking for the next great spot. We are trying hard at Chaparral to fit all the stands into a “every other year rotation”, it’s just one of our deer management strategies. With about 6-8 weeks remaining in the seasonal antler growing period, you can see many bucks are off to a great start, this fall is going to be great!!
