The male deer or buck starts to regrow its antlers throughout the year. During the early spring, you can see two stubs of bone on the head like in the photo above. The antlers reach its full growth in time for the rut during the fall. Bucks start to gradually lose their antlers after the rut is over. In the photo you can also see the thicker winter fur is slowly being replaced by a lighter summer coat.
