I hunt on public land were the deer are checked in with a biologist and they are real picky with the 13 inch rule

Both deer are legal. I'm personally wondering the age taking out the rut look

According to the biologists that have looked at the pictures he would not be legal they would not measure from the same point as the game warden

Where would the measure from? The 13" rule is pretty straightforward.

He looks legal to me and he is a fine looking buck.

I think he is just outside his ears and that really is not always a true indicator. For that non - typical it will come down to where the biologist actually measures off the main beam. A biologist isn't going to write you a ticket, and depending on the GW he may not either if it is close. Don't know how GW treat public land vs private land judgement though.

He is legal. They may not want you to shoot him because he's not fully mature yet. But he is legal as far as he AR rule.

He is legal! The game warden is the only one who’s decision makes it legal or not, why would a bioligist measure it a different way and does he have any say in the deer you harvest?

Exactly. But would he be legal according to a game warden? It is hard to tell from those photos.
