In a wild Elk, approximately when would new antler growth stop? (Oregon, 44 Deg. North Lat., Rocky Mtn. Elk). When are all of the points visible? If an Elk was a 7x7 or 9x9 on July 7th can any more points be expected? It seems June is the best month for growth, is this true? How long after the antlers stop growing does the velvet start coming off? When does bugling start and peak?
