Have you seen a buck with its antlers covered in a soft coating and wondered what that is and why it’s there? That coating is known as “velvet” and it’s part of a white-tailed deer’s antler growth cycle.

What we call the “velvet” on a deer’s antlers is made up of a bunch of tiny hairs. It feels velvety to the touch, hence why it’s referred to as “velvet.” The velvet’s purpose is to serve as a sensory alarm. It alerts the deer when its antlers brush against anything in their way. The deer need these alarm bells because a deer’s antlers are soft and vulnerable to damage from the time they begin growing in April until about mid-July. The antlers could easily be cut and because there are active blood vessels in the antlers, they could bleed to death. The fibers of the velvet help the deer know when their susceptible antlers are about to be put in danger.

Shed season is here! Every year about this time, deer shed their antlers in various places around their home range. In just a few weeks, bucks will be seen with velvet “nubbins” poking through last years set once was.

How many sheds have you found in one season? What about the biggest shed you’ve found?

It’s a great opportunity to get the kids outside and teach them what to look for while shed hunting and some quality bonding time!

Looking to sell the sheds you found? We buy antlers!

Javelina, also known as collared peccary, are medium-sized animals that look similar to a wild boar. They have mainly short coarse salt and pepper colored hair, short legs, and a pig-like nose. The hair around the neck/shoulder area is lighter in color giving it the look of a collar

☀️☀️ Javelina are not pigs. They look similar, but pigs are from the "Old World" and peccary are "New World" animals. There are many other differences most having to do with differences in physical anatomy.

☀️☀️ Adult females can give birth at anytime of the year. The young are often called "reds" due to the red color of their hair.
