The feeder timer base is 5.5". He looks like a no but one side looks wider than the other.

Interesting. Originally I thought he was facing the camera. It's going to be close, need better pics.

His right side does look wider than the left, it is sure damn close for sure.

They always look bigger than what they are from behind. So, in my opinion
no he is not wide enough.

Not sure that is the same buck. left brow tine is bent in this photo, and hard to tell in the first one but I don't think it is.

Agree with T, think those are 2 different bucks and the close up one is probably just legal AR wise and original pic maybe not.

IMO LEGAL
Also, my local Game Warden would absolutely call that 100% legal. They are not trying to ruin people's hunting. You still have to tag it as a antlered deer. What you decide to harvest, is your decision, within reason.
I highly recommend that you all visit with your game warden(s). maybe meet them at local game processor, that is where they visit often.

Legal. The inside spread appears to match the ears that are in the wider, relaxed position. If the ears were in the more narrow "alert position" which the AR rule clearly notes as a reference, I doubt you would be asking for opinions. I also doubt that should you lay eyes on him when the ears are up and alert, you'll soon be pulling the trigger.

Good luck.

In this case, for either photo, just too close in my opinion. I passed a buck twice last week almost exactly this size. If it is not obviously legal and becomes a close judgement call, I think it is wise to pass.

Yep he is good. Younger deer and does are delicious. Kill him if you like him, he will eat great!

Where I hunt there are no antler restrictions. BOOM! Get the skinning knife out.

If you need to ask someone else if it’s ok, it is too close for you to decide. That should tell you all you need to know…
