    A buddy from up in Canada sent me this pic of a buck with no antlers on Christmas Eve. I was surprised to see a buck from up north dropping so soon. I know they will start down here in Virginia about now and go through March. How about where you live?

    Camera is a Spypoint Pro-X

    Usually January but his could be a nutrition thing too.

    Last year I had pics up into March here. A lot depends on nutrition and such, I just figured that far up north they would be a month or two behind us.
