Thoughts?? I think it's legal in an AR county but need confirmation. Any guess on the age too??

I'm thinking not. Looks like 13" outside spread not inside. I'd take a good look before I pulled the trigger.



Good Hunting,
Gary

Good young buck but why would you even consider taking him?

I am wanting to let him walk but I'm afraid he won't last through the season considering how many houses are near this tract of land. It's not a residential area but its not out in middle of nowhere either. Place only covers 15 acres that they navigate through every morning.

If you shoot him, he won't make it until next year. Sometimes we have to give them a chance and let'em walk.

I don't think he'll make it, but he's an inch or less shy.

Only one way to find out, and it might cost ya, wouldn't risk it.

No way. Not legal. Too young. Too narrow. Give him some years.

He's right at 13". Maybe a little over. I zoomed all the way in on my phone and the tips of his ears are a little inside his rack. I wouldn't risk it.

One thing to remember is they always look bigger going away and he still don't look 13". So he will look even smaller facing the camera. Nice young buck.

Thanks for the feedback- gonna let him walk and hope the neighbors don't get trigger happy. I really do see a lot of potential in this guy. Place is near Petrolia in case you guys are wondering about location.

if the neighbor shoots him and he's not legal, rat 'em out.

I need to invest in a better game cam. Can't even really tell if this is the same deer!

Let him walk and grow. The last two bucks I have shot didn't even show up on my camera. Something better just may come along

I don't think he is 13'. He is pushing 13" though. Still wouldn't risk it. Goodluck this season!
