    Let's begin a poll across the country and do a survey on when bucks begin to shed velvet. Here in the northern portion of Texas, I have not seen a buck that is 'rubbed out', ie. has shed it's velvet. But... bucks should begin shedding any day. I'll keep an eye out!

    All of the bucks I`ve seen are still in velvet and that`s what I`m hearing from others, it should be real soon though.

    First one I got on a trail camera shedding this year was Aug 22, about 2/3 of them are slick horned now.

    I've seen a small spike last week that lost it's velvet. Most of the bucks should be losing it by now.

    NE Arkansas has been shedding velvet for the past week or two. A friend of mine was watching a group of bachelor bucks last week and said the largest 4 were slick horned, the smaller bucks still had velvet.
