DEER—SHEDDING HORNS AND VELVET


DEER—SHEDDING HORNS AND VELVET—I killed a deer in November, 1912, which had one straight horn, and one crooked horn, both in the velvet. I had killed two bucks which were both shed and hard horned. The soft horned buck had been castrated, and he was a big one. Does a castrated buck shed his horns and velvet?

In Jude Caton’s book on the deer of North America, this question is discussed at length. As you surmise, the deer that usually shed their horns, are greatly affected by castration. When the operation is in early youth, however, the effect is greater than when later in life. An old buck may continue to shed his horns and the velvet is likely to come off to some extent; but a young buck remains in the velvet, and his horns remain soft. I believe they do not shed their horns, but as I have not this book here, I am not quite sure on this point.
