Am I reading that correctly? It sounds to me like a buck must either be a spike or a large racked buck.Nice buck! I would shoot him on my property. But he is illegal in my part of TX!
A legal buck deer is defined as having a hardened antler protruding through the skin AND:
.At least one unbranched antler; or
.An inside spread measurement between main beams of 13 inches or greater; or
.Six points or more on one antler.
Most of my deer goes into jerky. Everybody at home likes it, everybody at church likes it (I believe one guy there might almost kill for it. He will do anything I want. All I have to do is promise him some jerky!), and everybody at work liked it (I say liked because I retired three weeks ago.)If you make any jerky from some of that meat I wouldn't mind a care package
