The 'rules' are clear, but this rack is confusing.

Depends on if you hunt in an AR county.

And it might be wise to wait until the season starts unless this is from East Texas.

Not in a AR County.


If I'm not hunting something I must be dead.

It really depends on what you call the mainbeam.

From what I would consider the spread at main beams, no I dont think so if in an AR county.

Cool buck - and a good question since you mentioned the rules are "clear" lol. I don't see minimum spread regardless how you measure. He might make it before season. If you know your Game Warden just ask him how he would measure a deer like for AR.

It could be depending on which beam you use. Be interesting to see how he finishes.

I personally don’t think that deers that young, will be interesting later in the year, assuming he hardens up

If I remember right it is a 13" inside spread and the general rule of thumb is the antlers outside the ears and it is probably legal. If that is an AR county looks like a no go to me.
If not an AR county then there are no restrictions on Antler size or deer age to the best of my knowledge.
