when a deer grows antlers and sheds them does that mean that they will be bigger next time.

In general, as a buck ages, his antlers become larger with each passing year. But if the animal undergoes some type of trauma or nutritional deficiency, antler size may be reduced in the subsequent year. As the years progress, antler size increases until about age 7.5, give or take a year or two depending on the deer and the area it lives. But for the most part, in our area if a deer makes it to age 3.5, he's almost a Houdini in getting past the hunting pressure, so we never get to really see the best racks that could be out there.
Asked a pretty informed question and wants an informed answer. What is this quiz time.
