Have this true cull but looks like not wide enough for AR what do y'all think. I don't think he will be any bigger. This is a 100 acre pasture surrounded by hunters with no want or thought to management. Thanks in advance for feed back.

Owing to the basic shape of his antlers, he might not add any points, but he will get bigger. Its a young buck.

Agree, that he won't make the minimum spread for the antler restriction.

Besides, culling that one buck (in the uncontrolled environment in which he lives) will do absolutely nothing for the herd quality, if that was your intent.

On another note,,was told by the GW that the new rules for killing an illegal narrow buck in an AR county is $1500 restitution plus fine (about $300) and forfeiture of buck mandatory.

He will live till wider in my pasture but he won't stay in and somebody will shoot him he might make it never know.

If you have a place that small, and its heavily hunted around you, there is ZERO reason to mess with a cull buck anyways.

One of original arguements made against AR's is that hunters will start leaving deer in the woods after making mistakes in judgement. If true, increasing fines will just add to it.

Call your game warden and send him the pic and let him make the call. I had one on my place a couple of years back out in Young County, sent him the pic and said kill him if you see him.
