I have had a camera on a free choice feeder last 3 months and nothing but doe. I walked back in woods and just hung cam on trail, tossed of a handful of corn and bam !! He was on cam that night. I bet he just isn't coming too feeder, to smart.

I'm against the crowd.
I don't think he's 13" wide.
I think his weak side hurt the measurement.

Its close, this is a good example of why the 13" rule isn't always a good one.

I wouldn't chance it. That's a big fine if he's not & he looks young . I don't think he's legal .

Good decision! They always look bigger from behind. I don't think he is legal but very close.

The 13" rule is designed to protect most 2yo bucks, and some 3yo bucks.
I'd say it's doing exactly what it's supposed to.

It's hard to tell without a full body pic, but I don't think that deer is 4+.

You're openly admitting you would break the law?
