    They should have a good 6 weeks of growth yet.

    Depends where you're at......I've seen them rubbed out by the 3rd week of August in Northern Arizona while others are in velvet until the 2nd week of September in the high-country of Colorado.

    Of course in parts of California, they are beginning to rub out now.

    Antler growth

    I have a buck that is somewhere in the 140-150" range right now. Could he put on 20-25" on in the next 4 weeks to hit 165-170? I know they are adding length and still good growth left, but can he add 5" a week? Thanks guys and sorry for the hijack

    I would tend to say no, but you just never know what a particular buck can do. My guess would be about 1/2 of what you suggested.

    He was 140-150 in the beginning of July. And from the last part of June to the beginning of July, about 9 days he had around 10" or more of new growth. So if he has that growth rate I think he could get 170, but I won't know if that rate continue until I get back out there next weekend and find him again. The last time I saw him the ends of every point was still balled up good. So idk, just wondering what other more experienced hunters think

    i was hoping there will be more but thought i would ask you guys what you thought. i have a trail cam pic of a whitetail and if he keeps growing he could be a pretty good one. Hope he stays in the area so my wife can get him with the bow.
