    You're gonna need to file off that eye gaurd.
    Then he will be perfect.

    here is a great question.

    the eye guard cannot be used in the judgment of legal buck. the buck has to have at least 2 little forks on the upper 2/3 of the antler correct?.
    I though the eye guard was the normally bulging part directly above their head...is this the eye guard?

    To be techinical, 6 point since you can hang a ring on the second one. I'd be embarrassed calling it that. (I forgot, six point is for whitetails) But I wouldn't call it 3x3.

    Tall forky

    Nice buck hatch, way to put the smack down on him! Now as for the conversation on what to call this thing, where is this 6th point?
