Yesterday I watched a buck right outside my window that had almost 4" of growth already! He's actually starting the early stages of developing brow tines.
I know this buck. He has some rips in his ears so his nickname is "Rip". He was a decent 8 point last year and shed VERY early. He had both sides gone by December 6th.
Here's what he looked like last July 15th. I'm hoping he'll be a solid 140" this year.
