Wondering does the antler have to stop growing and harden up before the velvet falls off? Would it need a couple weeks to harden?

Yes, the antler stops growing and hardens before velvet drop. It takes up to a month for antlers to finish hardening.
Most of our younger bucks seem to begin shedding velvet early in September. Some of the older bucks seem to be later in September. It depends on testosterone levels of individual bucks.
