One of our bloggers sent us the first good buck of 2014, which we posted back on June 27 and post again (top).
Here’s a look at him now in the images below.
With that first post I said the buck’s antlers, including those brows, would continue to grow into mid-August. Several people commented that brow tines seem to develop early in the antler cycle, and might not grow more as I had suggested.
As you can see, we were both right. Brows do develop early, especially as compared to tines, but the brows have continued to grow, and the tine length has exploded. Another great 2014 buck, good luck to the hunter.
