White-tailed deer shed their antlers every year prior to the re-growth of new ones..It may surprise you to find out that the entire shedding process takes only two to three weeks to complete, and of course the re-growth phase takes place over the summer up into very early fall..Bucks have antlers throughout spring, summer, and most of the winter, but shed them sometime between January and April (depending upon the animal and latitude), after the rutting season comes to an end..A buck can carry-on without antlers at this time of year because they do not need to fight-off other bucks for territory and does!!!

It depends on what part of the country you live in, but generally late summer to early fall. The further north you live, the earlier they start to rub it off.
