I'm not sure why it put the photos upside down but oh well. Anyways biggest question is does he meet the 13in. Requirements? How old? And what score? This is in young county, my first year on the lease and I have been feeding non stop protein and corn since I got on in april.

He should scare 160s or so IMO, He has great tine height and a pretty frame on him. I do think he will get by the 13" rule. Hope you get him and good luck. Great buck

5+ and 154-163 and yes on 13. Though most GW wouldn't give a ticket for that one if he was 12.

He looks like a 4 maybe 5 yr old in those pics. I would call him a 150 to low 150's on score. Great looking buck up

4.5 150ish. I would let him get another year on him to see if he could get more width and deeper drop tines. Cool buck. up

No daylight pics? Chances are he is nocturnal. That's how he got that old.


I work hard, drink a little and hunt when I can.

Deer change so much over the geography of Texas so to get a better idea of how old this buck is I need exact gps coordinates of your stand/feeder location in order to better age him peep

Super nice buck and although I agree another year would be neat to see how he develops, this deer wouldn't get a pass from anyone on my lease or my neighbors. Hope to see his width ground checked this season up

if there is no hunting pressure close to your place, might let him go, other wise, put him on the wall


hold on Newt, we got a runaway

Looks like he'll go about one fitty. He may not meet the letter of the 13" law on close ground inspection, but he certainly exceeds the spirit of the law, being let young bucks grow into a trophy. It'd be a cruel warden, and I've only met straight up great people as GWs, to issue a citation in this case and confiscate the trophy.

Hope you get an opportunity. That's a nice buck for low fence Young County.

If you measured between the two drop tines I think he's 13 all day long!! Greatest inside spread, right?!!!
Seriously does anyone know the answer to that??

Thats a close call. I would hate to shoot it to find out its illegal but someone out there will shoot that deer on sight without even considering if he will meet ARs.

I would call TPWD or a game warden and clarify if the inside spread could be between the 2 drop tines. If so I would call him legal.

He's close. Wouldn't agree on a game warden letting you slide on him. They would probably say that's a dang good buck as he writes.

Inside spread is measured at the widest point inside the mainbeams and at a right angle to the centerline of the skull.

If he made a daylight appearance I would not hesitate ground checking him. Your neighbors won't . Most of the wardens I have met wouldn't wright a ticket for a deer like that .

Nav, I think you're the only one that's not completely high when it comes to the score.

He looks pretty close, it could be an expensive gamble.
