Antlers in pink

This 3x4 whitetail buck visited yesterday. His antlers are still pink with blood where he's been shedding their velvet, and I can still see a string of dried velvet clinging to the base. There are more than one or two trees around with fresh rub marks on them. Note also that he's already getting his gray winter coat even though it's been in the 90s for the past 2-3 weeks.
