I know it's hard to say from just a picture, but I thought I'd check with the more experienced of you in here. There's an extremely low population of deer at our lease and this is likely the last season we'll have on it, otherwise I'd wait until next year to take this guy. He looks to be 13" or greater, right?

Horns are outside the ears. Looks young but legal to me, if only by a hair.

That's a bad angle to call it from-he's not looking directly at the camera. IMO he's going to be between 12 1/2 and 13 1/2, the question is where. I'd look at him really hard before you pull the trigger. Bucks travel a lot during the rut, you never know what else may show up.

Legal, maybe. Ethical, no.

Maybe with different angle, but very marginal. Pass.

I appreciate the advice. I'll pass on him and let someone else on the lease take the risk. Hopefully we can stay on for another year and this guy gets a bigger rack.

Very close, might be too close to chance it, and like said earlier he looks pretty young.

To close to call. Game Warden told me If you have to question it donít shoot it. Been there done that.
