Watching a Buck Shedding Velvet Will Make You Eager to Hit the Woods

Buck shedding velvet in the woods

If you are a fan of big deer then you will not want to miss getting to watch this massive buck shedding velvet.

We know the process of deer growing velvet-covered antlers, shedding the velvet, and then, after the winter, shedding the entire antler before starting the whole process over again in the spring.

What you don’t usually get is to actually see the critical points in that progression as they happen. Luckily for us, a buck picked just the right place to work on shedding his velvet, and the cameras were there rolling.

If you are like many people who have viewed this video, it may not be exactly what you expected. A buck shedding velvet is not quite the majestic sounding thing you may imagine. It’s actually quite often a bloody mess!
