Hey folks, I have a quick question of curiosity, I have a deer coming on my trail cam, and it still has velvet on its horns, Im maybe thinking that it is a Doe, but the body is a pretty good size body. last year I had the same thing a deer with horns and with velvet this time of year in the same spot. im also maybe thinking that it could be a buck that has been on my cam for the last 4 seasons, and last year he was quite large and may have been his peak year, could I get some imput from other hunters ? I'll post a couple pictures of the buck last year and this year, and the deer with velvet this year and last

I`ve read that when they have had a injury to there genitals it can cause this.

After looking at the picture i say it,s a good chance it,s a doe.

Definitely large body compared to the 12 pointer - there are pics from each year and there is not much change - matter of fact they almost look identical - if it is a female do they ever shed their horns? Maybe if it is a female, they have them their entire life.
