Think this guy is super close. Really wanna cull him due to no brow tines. Looks kinda old too.

Whoa, Now that one is close! His age makes it look like he should be 14" ear tip to ear tip and his antlers are still inside. Might be right at 13 i'd pass.

I know it's closer than I'd like to gamble with, but he's one of about three bucks I have without brow tines. Really wanna get his genes out of he pool.

Mount a metal bar on the legs of your feeder that is 13 inches long. This will help you make a decision. Eventually he will line up on camera or in person to let you compare to make a better decision.

Show the pics to your game warden and get his feedback. Deer is mature, for sure. Or put the crosshairs right here and he'll make ARs.

I doubt the warden will agree to let me take an illegal buck. He lives less than a mile down the road, and I'd rather not even give him a reason to stop by my place to check. I'll just tough it out and let him walk. Maybe a car will hit him.

He got a big head and ears so I think he does by a hair. He needs a dirt nap!

I say yes, apply this^^^ logic for safety and blast him. he sure looks mature/post mature to me.

That said have you ever laid eyes on him? If I was a betting man, id say will never have the chance to make the call.

Even if he did it wouldn't matter. I'd guess you would have to travel with that deer into another county, drop it off at the processor, etc. plenty of chances for a different game warden to see the deer. Not worth it.

And I don't think he's 13"
