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


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:

Those both look at least close enough to satisfy a game warden and I bet they are right at that inch mark. Specially the one on his right side that look to be 2-3 inches.

I wouldn’t ever say anything is close enough to satisfy a game warden.

I have had this discussion with gameys in person. Every gamey will have a slightly different take of course but where a point starts and what makes a point is a little subjective. But if it’s within an 1/4 of an inch I would bet the vast majority of the time they will give it to you. And more things can be counted as a point then what some people realize.

Can you elaborate? I always thought the only thing you could count as points were points. :chuckle:

My guess is he is talking about burrs around the bases.  Some of those can get to 1".
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

Exactly. Junk around the bases can make the difference between going home with a ticket or a animal.

Too close for me.  I passed on an almost identical buck during modern general in the Chiwawa a few years ago, I thought it would more likely than not make 1".  I wasn't trophy hunting, double the length and he'd have gone home with me.  Ended up the only buck i saw that season that might have been legal, no regrets.
As long as we have the habitat, we can argue forever about who gets to kill what and when.  No habitat = no game.

I'd say not shooting a questionable deer has a much better chance of going home without a ticket.
