Legal or no? Hard to tell from this pic but the "missing" side is like a rounded nub. So, does that count as an unbranched antler? Thanks

One side just has a "nub" (not a harden antler at least an inch long.)This will not count.
The other side has two or more points? Lets say it has two points.
You cannot shoot this deer in an AR county.

The one-inch rule applies only to points, meaning anything that extends from the main beam at least one inch is a point and results in the main beam being branched.

In this case, one side is clearly unbranched, correct? This deer only has one branched antler.

And that's all it needs to be legal

Looks like a cull to me, and legal since he has one unbranched antler. Choot him, unless other deer in his age class are inferior (it should grow back next year).

FWIW if the one side is broke plumb off, not legal per our game warden.

I have a deer that could be the twin to this in Montague County.

I understand warden saying that if the one side was completely gone. This one has what looks like a golf ball sized nub.

We have a bumper crop of them this year. Hopefully most are broken which I think most are.
