If those drums are standard size. They are 22.5" wide. Comparing to that deer, that buck is REAL close.

I'd let him grow another year or two.

I probably say "yes" he'll measure. But I think I'd let him walk. Depends on how long I had to sit in the stand and watch him!

I've got a similar one on the wall from Mills County that goes 14 1/4" inside but my deer is a shade wider. I bet he's legal, but I don't think I'd fin: out the hard way.

I think he makes it. If that is the one you want, then shoot it.


See y'all around the campfire.

Do you want to take our word for it or let a game warden measure it?

Looks like he'd sneak by, but Sneaky has a good point.

A perfect example of why I never pull the trigger until I see space between the outside edges of the ears and inside edges of the antlers. And how much space determines how quickly I will pull the trigger.

Far too close for me to shoot.

I think he barely makes it, but close enough I wouldn't take the chance. I would let him go another year and hope no one else was willing to take a chance on him. It's a shame because he's a beautiful buck.

Yes, he is. And here is the situation. I have picked him out for my wife to kill. She is 70 and I do not know how many more years we have that we will be able to walk the fields and climb into the tree stands. I already cannot lift a buck into the back of a pickup. I have to use a FEL to get them up there. So......I really hate to tell her to pass on this buck saying, " lets get him next year." But also, I don't want her and she would not want to kill one that is not legal.

If you look at the TPWD hunting manual, he fits the description of a legal buck.
