Default Seeing bucks out of velvet ?

Most of my trail cam pics are still showing bucks in velvet, anyone seeing bucks rubbed out yet?

This buck looks like he’s hard horned as of this past weekend

Bigger bucks in lower Brazoria County have been hard horned since the first week of August. Still seeing a few velvet youngsters. Of course, our deer will be rutting in a couple weeks or so.

They've been hard horned for a couple weeks in Jefferson County. I had one tear up one of my pecan trees over the weekend...

Just drove through the neighborhood here in SA and all still had velvet. They’re getting close though it looks like. Pretty much done growing.

Pulled cards this morning and there cleaning up now. Took these pictures of the neighbor bucks on the fence line and they’ve still got bubble wrap.
