He might just barely be legal. I wouldn't shoot him.

Always hard to make that decision in East Texas but if he makes it another year, he could be a nice buck

I think hes legal. Being that he appears mature/almost mature, id bet his ears are closer to 14" wide and not 13". Since he probably lives in and spends alot of time in the national forest, somebody is gonna shoot that deer if they have the chance.

I think I'd wait til all the traffic starts in the national forest and get his daddy. Its only a matter f time before the biguns look for a hideout.

I say no, looks like a nice 3yo and if he is in the right area of a NF he has a good chance to make it.

I would let him walk, but of course being next to national forest he will probably be shot by another hunter at first sight.

To early in the year and to close to think about shooting him.

I'll give someone's suggestion from another thread. Shoot him in between the eyes then measure.

I got these two pictures last year, the only decent pictures of a buck at my feeder in the same area. Do you think it is the same buck as above?
