If you want some friendly advice, get a haircut and take a bath. You wouldn't get hassled so much.

Congratulations. Great, mature buck.
Question: what is going on with the Counties with 13” restrictions. I heard something about exceptions on maturity or tine length or something. Please clearing for me if you know for sure. I’ve heard enough of “I think…” The issue caused me to pass on one my first season here last year. He was very similar to this guy you have here. Awesome stuff.

I implied those Counties with the restriction; be pretty stupid to post up an illegal harvest now wouldn’t it?

Never heard of any exceptions, DJ. Get back with us on the source.

Congrats Captain.

Thank You! And by the way, most of our bucks are outside the ears. This one was just one of a couple of similar skinny spreads.

Never happen, estimating rack spread is pretty easy and objective, judging length, mass of tines and a deer's age is very, very, subjective, IMO.

(no intention to highjack thread; it just I passed on a buck just like this in Parker County)
If you were to guess; what would you estimate the length of spread on this rack?

The biologists I have visited with say the main reason for AR's is to allow young bucks the time to mature. Will they all grow past 13" inside spread? No, some will and some will not. And I don't remember reading anywhere in the hunting handbook about age restrictions.

That’s exactly where he’s going.
