Not even close to being legal, I think RT Spring could even tell that.😉

Ha ha!   
I kill elk and eat elk, when I'm not, I'm thinking about killing elk and eating elk.

They used to distinguish "a point" by the ability to hang a ring on it, wish it was that way now, might keep a lot of bucks from being left to rot after someone tries to say its an inch long from a couple hundred yards away. To close to call on this particular little fella.

 :twocents: A deer's eye is pretty much an inch tall, they are both smaller.

Anything that I have to triple check and mull over whether legal or not gets a pass. Not going to shoot.

I would bet at least one of those points is legal but that is with the benefit of looking at the picture for awhile.  No way I make that bet through a scope.  He walks.

I'll answer both questions.  No I don't think either point is an inch.  Yes he is legal where I live.

I would love for a game warder to chime in on this.  Would the hunter receive a ticket?

This is why the inch rule is one of the stupidest ones the state has. It should be based on whether you can hang a key ring off of it, which is a much easier judgement call in the field.  As for me I'm passing all day long, the bucks I'm after there isn't a doubt if a point is an inch long or not.

So I shot a buck almost identical to him about 6 years ago and he had like 3 little points that I thought were all about a inch.  NOT one of them was.  The closest was about a 1/8th inch short.  I didn't turn myself in but I didn't hide it either.  I tagged it and ate it and had it hanging in camp.  If questioned by game warden then I would have just explained myself and put myself at his mercy.

Everyone makes mistakes at least you were straight up it about and in any case the statute of limitations has long passed so you're free to confess!
