Many people who have seen deer find this hard to believe. Especially when you consider that the antlers of a| mature elk may be over 5 feetj long and that of a moose may have a spread of more than 6 feet. But the antlers of deer are shed and regrown every single year. The antlers of deer are made of a kind of honeycomb structure. In some kinds of deer, the antlers are single straight shafts. But some deer have as many as 11 branches to each antler. In fact, it is possible to tell how old a deer is from its antlers, since the number of branches, varies with age. The first year, two "ped- icles", which are low knoblike projections, appear on the forehead of the deer. These are the only parts of the antlers which are never lost. Each spring, the antlers break off from the pedicle and new antlers are grown during the summer. The second year, a straight shaft grows out of the pedicle. In the antlers of the hird year the first branch appears. Each year a part is add- until the full number of branches has been reached. Af- er that the antlers usually grow each year with a smaller number of branches. During the period the antlers are growing they are covered ivith a sensitive skin which is called the velvet. This velvet ms blood vessels in it so that ;he antlers can be nourished and build up the bone. When the antlers have reached their full size, which takes about 2 to 4 months, the blood supply is cut off from the velvet. Then the velvet begins to wither and is finally shed. The deer helps this process by rubbing the antlers against trees. As you might imagine, new antlers have to grow quite fast each year. And they do! Antlers may grow as much as one-third to one-half inch a day. The annual shedding of the antlers by the deer seems to cause it no )ain at all. New antlers are 'ully developed by fall, which is ;he mating season, and deer use ;hem as weapons in their battles to win thp females.
