My buddy shot a nice 11 point with a 15" spread.

What other buck can he shoot now.......legally.

Its a two buck county with restrictions, I just want to see if I'm reading the reg correctly.

spike or buck that has a horn on one side that is un-branched. So, that could be a three point, if on one side he was a spike

A buck with at least one unbranched antler.
It can have any number of points on one side as long as the other side is unbranched.

Doesnít have to be a 3 point. Thatís just the most likely. Could be a 12 point if it was 1 on one side, and 11 on the other.

But what if the other point was a main branch that is broken off? A 12 pt that is now 6 in one side but broken to a point on the other...

That would be a question to ask your local game warder before you pulled the trigger.

The game warden here told me if a main beam is broken and not branched, it's a spike. The only exception would be if there is evidence the hunter broke it off intentionally. I think it would be consistent, but it's possible that a GW in another county may interpret the law differently.

I don't like that. Basically shooting a buck the "shouldn't" be legal to shoot. I don't think I'd knowingly do it. Getting my second buck on a technicality or loop hole just doesn't seem right to me.

The regulations say zero about an antler that is broken off. If it is unbranched then you are good to go. The law is written that way since it is a little unrealistic for someone to judge at 200 yrds if a spike is truly a spike or if they broke their horn off right as the sun comes up. This isn't up to the GW for interpretation. I agree that you might not want to knowingly shoot a buck if he just broke off but it is legal.
