I've run across a few bucks lately, and boy are they beautiful. Not only is the whitetail deer in a beautiful coat in general, and looking quite healthy, but the racks for the matured bucks are close to being full size before shedding the velvet, which happens sometime in August-ish.
While in the growth phase, the antlers are covered in "velvet", a layer of skin that supplies the budding antlers with the nutrients needed to build the bone mass. The antlers will grow rapidly for 2-4 months. When the velvet is no longer needed, a ring at the bottom of the antler shaft forms and cuts off the supply of blood and nutrients. The velvet withers and begins to fall off. As a rule this process is facilitated by the deer by rubbing his antlers against trees. The whole process is repeated every year for the rest of his life.

While the antlers grow, the bachelors hang out together until the competition for does begins.
This interesting rack has double brow tines, which is unusual. Most bucks have a single brow tine on each side or none at all.
Both of these bachelors have interesting racks, and are both non-typical, I believe. I still cannot count the points with the angles I got, but the tines are not balanced on both sides for hunters scoring purposes.
It looks to me that there are at least 7 on the left and possibly 4 or more on the right. I would love to get a closer look at either of these guys, so I will definately be on the lookout when I am in the area again.
