I've gotten to the point where I hope for does and spikes. It would have to be without a doubt outside the ears before I'd squeeze the trigger. Sucks for my eight year old but he'll probably never shoot more than a spike but at least the trophy hunters will be happy.

Bear Charge i like seeing some bigger bucks in my county but the bag limits have really affected the number of deer we see anymore. Now lucky to see any deer when i hunt.

Man that's close! He looks like a mature deer to me and I would most likely squeeze a round off at him but I'm a little bit of a risk taker.

The GW that covers our area would never call into question that deer as being legal. Thankfully, he is one that recognizes the intention of AR's is to allow bucks with good potential to grow older.

He's old enough.
