One of the hunters on my place shot a nubbin buck with no antler protruding. Is an antlerless tag used or a buck tag? This occurred during the general hunting season and am just wondering. I would think an antlerless tag is ok but not sure and the hunter used a buck tag.

If no antler is protruding through the skin it's an antlerless, even if you can see and feel bumps. If anything sticks through the skin at all, it's a buck.

A "buck deer" is a deer with a hardened antler protruding through the skin. A "spike buck deer" is a buck with no antler having more than one point. All other deer are antlerless deer. A spike buck must be tagged with a buck deer tag from the hunter's hunting license or applicable permit.

Nope!!! And if he had gotten checked, a ticket could have been issued for illegally tagged deer.

For tagging a buck as a buck?

The tags are buck or antlerless. Think about that. They aren't buck and doe tags. They aren't antlered and antlerless. They're buck and antlerless.

Antlerless is exactly what it means, if it doesn't have antlers, it is an antlerless tag, no matter what kind of hardware he has. Tagging it with a buck tag is incorrect. Likewise shooting a buck with no antlers coming through the skin is legal in antlerless only season, and you would tag it as antlerless. The TPWD description is surprisingly clear on this issue.

A deer such as he described is an antlerless buck. Perhaps use of either tag would be okay. confused

The only acceptable tags would be antlerless or buck/antlerless tag. A buck tag alone would be incorrect. Not sure what is unclear about that.

What's unclear is that the deer is a buck. Are you a TPWD game-warden?

Nope but I shot a nubbing buck two years ago and consulted one on how to tag it. Although again it states very clearly that a deer with no protruding antlers should be tagged as antlerless, regardless of the sex: don't take my word for it though, call your GW if you think I'm wrong.
