Usually mature bucks where I hunt (Jack and Young Counties) have a wide spread, this one don't - but no one would doubt he's mature. Got to make sure he's over 13" though..what say you? His body size I think is playing hell with the rack width.

Looks barely ear wide. I say he walks in counties with ARs.

a large mature deer can easily be 15 inches wide ear tip to ear tip. IMO this deer has a large head and ears are prob wider than 13 inches

Unless your game warden is a prick I don't think he would give you a ticket even if he ain't 13. I think he is 12-14 wide. His body is pretty big so maybe closer to 14.

This deers ear tips are almost 17 inches apart in the same position as the buck the OP posted in the 4th pic. IMO the OPs buck could easily be 15 inches wide with it being a large big bodied buck.
