"Latest you have seen a muley with antlers"

What is the latest you have seen a mule deer still packing their antlers?
I've seen a few with antlers in mid April but yesterday I saw a two point in Southern New Mexico still packing one antler. May 2nd is the latest I have seen now.
I'm guessing this isn't too uncommon in Sourhern NM, AZ and TX because they rut later but I was still surprised. Has anyone else see mule deer with normal unshed antlers in May?

I have a picture of a 2 point in southern Colorado still packing one side on May 30. The other side was a velvet nub I've always wondered how he ended up looking.

It's funny this post came up. I was in Wyoming for the opener, and I couldn't believe it I saw a 180 or better buck still packing both sides. Hard horned and white ready to fall anytime.

It very well could be true a 180 class buck was still holding but it wasn't because they just haven't dropped like normal yet. He had to be an atypical buck. I knew of a bull(free range Utah bull) elk that shed his antlers in November every year and shed his velvet mid June. Some animals "clocks" are just off. But definitely 100% of everything has shed in Western Wyoming except these atypical animals. Damn near all the decent sized muleys dropped early March or even late February this year where I am.

May 5th in SW wyoming about 4 years ago I saw a buck packing 1 side. I couldn't believe it he was probably a 140's type buck.
