You guys don't think this measurement is an inch?
thats not where the measurement would be taken. No its not an inch.

Where would it be taken?  Regs show you measure the length of the long side.

While thats correct, from the angle we are looking your line is actually down into the line of the main beam. Its just not a proper angle to accurately show where one would measure from

Looks like he has another G3 on his right but you can't see it in the pic well enough. Still not a shooter on the last day, last hour if you ask me. I'd go find a doe.

I almost started an exact same thread, but with an elk. I'm not shooting either one.

To me he is clearly part of the age group the regulations are designed to protect. No way would I shoot (talking east side Muley).

Too close to tell 100%, but the best part of this thread is that NOCK NOCK is an ethical hunter and passed on him!  Good job.

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


From what Ive gleaned over the years from others doings...… Most GW prolly would not ticket for shooting this type buck. It does have 2 visible points(1 on each side) that would make the 3rd point. The concern is that may/may not be an inch, but they are very visible. That usually satisfies most GW.

DO IT,  I feel that a lot of hunters can learn from these type threads...…..And they are fun to read all the comments  ;) ;) :chuckle:

Sooo, It would be very hard to have one of my kids who has hunted hard pull off this buck and let him walk. It sure looks legal to me. Regulations are in place for good reason, and I agree with the 3pt min on mule deer. Splitting hairs on this 3x2 is one thing that takes some of the joy out of hunting.

I am with you on this Nock.  I am not looking at the eyeguard on the right, but it does look like a 3rd point on the left.  That said I would pass simply because I think 4 out 5 GM would say legal...but that is not a chance I would to take.
