In the last week my buddy say a buck still holding my dad saw one and I saw one as well. Seen more fresh rubs while shed hunting recently as well. Anyone else experiencing this? All the deer have been by me in Gloucester/Salem county.

Yesterday morning I had a small 7pt and a doe walk across in front of me.

Saw three bucks out in a CRP field the other day all still holding. Last year I had an 8pt that according to trail cam pics held until April.

Only target bucks loose antlers early, lol!  Last year I seen a full rack 8pt on Good Friday.  I have about 1/3 of the bucks I feed in my backyard still holding (all small).

What’s the reason for early drops and late drops ?

I think nutrition and health of animal. I also think small antlers with not much weight to it will stay on longer because there isn't much help form gravity.

Makes sense but I don't think it would effect "months" worth of holding. The bigger bucks probably are more stressed because of the rut. The small ones don't have a clue yet. LOL

Who knows?. I see young bucks, running around much more than older bucks during the rut. They maybe more stressed
