In the winter, a nice buck can go from stud to dud in a heartbeat.
Which is exactly what happens in today’s video.
This buck starts sniffing around a local doe. It looks like she gives him a kick, and just like that, his antlers fall to the ground.
And just like that, his antlers are gone.

The video was posted about two months ago, which would’ve put this incident in early December——which is pretty typical.
Bucks shed their antlers when all females have been bred, from late December to February, and then start growing them again in spring. Most hunters already know this, of course, but for those of you who don’t deer hunt, it’s a quick biology lesson.
