Is that a picnic area in the day light pic? Looks like one of those covered lake pervilons things.

Good luck getting that deer to hold still while you pull his tooth to get his age before you shoot him...

After you kill him keep his lower jaw bone and you will know for sure...


The problem with using these pictures to judge an August buck is that the pics in that chart were taken close to the peak of the rut, when the necks are swollen and the fur is much fuller. The low belly seen in the OP's pics is indicative of an old buck. His neck will get so big during the rut that it will look like his chest begins under his chin.

Summer range and fall range can be miles apart. These summer pics of velvet bucks are encouraging, but dont get your hopes up just yet...unless your season opens in late August or 1st week of September.

I ride this rollercoaster every summer with velvet buck pics and can count on one hand the bucks I killed in the fall that I photographed in the summer. And there have only been 3 or 4 that were killed in same area where there pics were taken in August.

My 2 best bucks just started shedding velvet past few days. Both of them are 4.5 year olds. They disappeared from a feeder they were coming to every night for a month. I checked another camera about 1/2 mile away and both were there but not together...one at feeder August 15th...one there yesterday. Both have velvet hanging from there racks...about half peeled off. This is right on schedule for these south Ga older bucks. The younger ones will be shed by 1st week of September...mostly.

One of these bucks will leave my property in the next couple weeks..he has done this past 3 years...I dont know where he goes.....he will make a couple appearances in late October but after that wont see him again until later December.

The other shooter has remained on my place throughout the fall and winter. Hope he does it this time. I couldn't get my timing right on him last season. I would hunt one morning and nothing. Next morning check camera and there he was at 8 am. We played that game all season...he won. He was a shooter last year at 3.5. Even better at 4.5.




Good luck!


Thank God For Your Blessings!

I have killed a buck every year that I had in velvet. I also have killed almost one every year that I have never seen before. The ones i have in velvet may not stay around every day but will be back through at least once a week when late October is here. That's pretty much the same with every one I know. If my buddy has dome nice buck a few miles away i usually get a few pics of them in Nov. And he usually get pics of the bucks I have too. They come back through as long as they dont get killed in some way.
I did have a friend that had a good buck he watched for 5 years ever winter he would be gone and would not return till October he finally killed him and he was old as heck. I think he had a pattern with the pressures in the summer and spring the place where my friend hunted was being hayed and had a lot of cattle ran on it then come fall things got quite there.
