Welcome norryhunter Big smile

I don't know about August being a more rapid growing period, but the blood will stop flowing and hardening will begin mid to late August and velvet will be shed usually beginning first of Sept. That's in our area so it may differ for you. So I would say the growth is near it's end.

Good Luck with your season Thumbs up
