Wouldn't let my daughter shoot this little guy as we have plenty bigger, but it would've been an easy shot and we had a really slow year in 2016.

When looking at you head on, he's just inside his left ear and just outside his right.

Hoping I don't get to January and regret it. She froze up on one last year and never had another decent shot at a buck.

Thanks, it was the right decision. Would hate for her first buck to not be legal.

If you have doubt then let him go!
When a legal buck steps out you will know it!....They are there, you just have to wait.

I say legal! As stated above. You will know the right one when he steps out!

Like others have said, itís a close one and most likely legal but you did the right thing in letting that one walk away. You taught your daughter a good lesson about taking a shot only when you are positive about it. Good call and I hope you are rewarded with a couple of bigger bucks this season!

Agree! If you're not sure, best not touch the trigger. You cannot un-shoot a deer. Personally I have to be able to SEE SPACE between the ear and the main beam.....

He is legal. One side is farther out than the other.

Reading the posts above gives pause to the AR rules. IF this many people have difficulty judging one that is close then during the heat of the moment it is really difficult. I wish they would have used 12" instead of 13". I have let many a mature East Texas buck walk just to be on the safe side.
