Do the mule deer usually still have velvet around that time of year? I thought they would have shed their velvet in early Sept.

Thanks guys! He's definitely a nice buck and I'm proud of the effort I put into him. I'd still like to break that 28 inch or better (he's a 24 inch buck) so still have a goal to work towards.

Ecu, the last three or four bucks I've killed have all been during the mid Sep. muzzleloader season here in Colorado and they've all still been in velvet. By the first or second week of Oct. they've usually gotten it off.

Good to know one can shoot a velvet buck during the muzzy season as I thought I would have to hunt archery season to get a velvet buck. I would have thought the deer would be out of velvet by this time of year. Thanks, SoCo...Congrats again!
