I have been doing a little reading on this subject and it seems that most people are quoting from one or two early web articles, both of which say that "most" male reindeer lose their antlers by early December. Another interesting and amazing fact is that female reindeer can become moms as early as one year old. Some can conceive as early as 5 months old! I just find this phenominal. How could it be possible? "Your eight months old and you haven't found someone yet?"
