New beginnings

Whitetail deer are beautiful, graceful creatures.  Our farm provides a great home for them, with green pastures for grazing and dense woods for bedding down.

Throughout all my years here, though, I have never found an antler shed – one of the buried treasures of the woods.  Every year, a whitetail buck will shed his antlers sometime during January – March.  They will grow out new antlers, which are covered in velvet, during the spring.  Once the antlers are fully formed, the buck will rub off the velvet on branches and trees, resulting in a nice, new, polished set of antlers.
