Things are going to start getting interesting in this bachelor group, I suspect. Bucks have a pecking order while they're in velvet, but it's largely decided and enforced by body language, pushing, shoving, and kicking. Antlers aren't part of the equation, other than for showing off. But once that velvet drops, the playground bullies will start re-negotiating. I wonder if the "Hard Horn 8" (yes, Hurteau, I named him, get over it) will take advantage of his early opportunity to use his tines?
