We had a ton of spikes the group saw this year, I think I had 4 regulars myself at 1 blind (two feeders). 2 were older and 2 were young.

Never saw one. Saw plenty of forkhorns and young deer though.


Life is too short, as is. Don't chance it.

Spikes is all I saw in Stephens county... is this what they mean by antler restrictions?? confused2


It's a RUGER, for cryin' out loud; "What's the round count?" or "How many rounds down the tube?" are irrelevant!

Me too grin all yearlings except for the one I took which appeared to be a 2yo and much bigger than the others and was even more aggressive towards the other deer.

About the same amount of spikes as last year. I took a two year old last weeken and another hunter did the same. On the last sit I had a six point and a fork horn come in at the same time and the fork horn was much bigger.

Shoot the bigger bodied spikes and leave the young looking spikes alone.

I have at least three at my place. Two seem young ones and the other is older pretty good size. Only have seen him once or twice. Might let my buddy's son take him this weekend if he comes out.

I saw about 6 all year. Young and old. Should have shot the old one. He was a trophy in his own right.

Seen more this year than a long time, just a few though, the bonus cull tag they added in the AR counties has really thinned them out.

I'm in an AR county and not sure I consider one fully branched buck exceeding 13" and one unbranched ar spike buck as the 2nd legal buck an "extra" cull tag. I would consider that the case for a two fully branched buck county + an unbranched buck/spike "an extra cull" buck situation though.

Nobody on our lease saw a spike all season. Lot of young bucks but they all had several points.
Maybe after 7 years and us shooting every spike we saw did some good.
