    Had anyone seen any decent antler growth in Alabama yet? Central Alabama really hasn't started growing a whole lot yet.

    I've seen some decent growth in Pike county. Had a co worker show me a few of his bucks that have around 6" or so already

    Had a really nice buck cross the road about a week ago that already had a really good frame. It was quite unusual to have that much antler growth already this time of the year for Alabama this was in Tuscaloosa.

    Thanks Pigpimping. Been watching these grow all year. Trying to get the farm set up for the grandkids. One is 11 the other is 5 1/2 and all I hear from them is let's check the cameras pawpaw, how big will they get pawpaw, I want to get them pawpaw. Lol. Oldest is shooting his bow some but when I got them a youth 243 and they got pumped up even more. All boys they are. Now granddaughter (4) wants her own. Lol

    These are not far from the Alabama Tennessee stateline. About 10 minutes up the road. Same deer with a bare spot between its shoulder blades [​IMG]
