    I went out to a privately owned hunting ground of mine this evening and saw two awsome bucks, they had antlers already past the ears, when do the antlers stop growing?

    I think it differs from what part of the country your in. Last year I seen buck's fully grown around the first week of august. I didnt see none rubed untill the end of august. There is the rare thing that happens to deer when they become stage from injury or birth defect. Where they dont lose there antlers no more and even more rare is the stage what dont lose his horn & and keeps growing them threw his life. So that gives us over 90 days to scout our areas Happy hunting!

      I'd say drop is right. In Colo. everything has stoped "growing" by end of July/first August. We are hunting Elk(bow) in the middle of August.
      I grew up in Arkansas and the deer there are "done" around this same time.

            In terms of peak of growth over the years, most bucks will have their best set of antlers in their fifth or sixth year.
