If she dinks out, maybe. 

Not Likely she shot a 102 last year

Nice!  I think your odds of finding a buck like that in velvet are pretty slim.  Did you post a pic of that 102" last year?

As of 2 days ago both bucks I'm watching over 100+ were in full velvet in southern AZ....

I was in 35b on Saturday scouting for my daughter's youth hunt and I glassed up 7 bucks and every buck was in full velvet. Should be a fun hunt

All the bucks I glassed up on Friday (including a 100" buck) were all still in velvet. But a couple were starting to rub.

Thanks guys. This will be the earliest youth hunt I’ve done. Just wanted to know if I need to prepare for preserving velvet

Last weekend on the youth hunt every buck we saw was still in full velvet. We glassed probably 15 or so bucks. I would think they would start rubbing this week.

With the late moisture everything is dropping velvet late. So far all of the mule deer up here (3c)are still in velvet.

I’ve been watching two WT bucks in central AZ for this weekend’s juniors hunt and they were both hard horned last time I saw them on September 24th.
