If I castrate my 6 month old buck will he grow antlers?

Q: I have a male deer that is 6 months old and has little nubs on his head but nothing has protruded through the skin yet. If I get him neutered now will he grow antlers?

A: If you castrate him right now he will not grow antlers. What ever method of castration you use you must protect him from tetanus.
