Beautiful animal.

 

Are they always in the velvet? Meaning, during hunting season? I can't hardly remember a show that they didn't take one that wasn't covered in velvet. Do you just strip that off to have them mounted then?

Thanks guys.

As the antlers grow, they are in velvet. It starts to peel off mid-sept. Some that we saw already had it stripped completely off and their racks were pure red from blood still exuding out the bone.

We took 12 bulls this week and all but 1 were in velvet. They all stripped right off, no problem, like unwrapping a present.

In early september you can get some formdehyde into them to hold the velvet, but by the time we hunted, it was too late to save it.

Very cool. I just wasn't sure if it was common practice to strip the velvet off. I don't care for the velvet look and so was just curious.

 

Would love to hunt Caribou some day.
