Although I'm not sure how many 9pts+ they kill at Laurel Hill, I know there have been some huge bucks killed there, even before AR's were put in place. I know of one 159" deer taken there. That is big!

I wish the TWRA would just tell us why they put a 9pt or better rule. I'm just interested to know, not mad or anything.


I don't understand the spike or less rule . I don't believe in culling them out .

"I don't understand the spike or less rule . I don't believe in culling them out."

Exactly. That old way of thinking has been thrown out years ago. Though I can remember shooting a lot of spikes because of it!

The Laurel Hill rules are basically the same as Presidents Island.

Alan would be the right person to ask.

A friend of mine killed a nice 12 pointer that had a spread of just 14 inches. But it stuck up high and had tremendous mass. the deer scored out at 168 and change. On an "outside the ears" AR he would have been a non-shooter.

I had that deer into 45 yards during bow season and couldn't get him to close the distance.

Teach people how to judge the age of bucks instead of size (width and/or points) of a buck.It is NOT that hard...especially telling a 1 1/2 from an older buck. Just passing all 1 1/2 year olds will do wonders for a herd's buck age.

For private land management (not public land), I couldn't agree more with that statement.

I haven't read all of this thread but I've seen many pics of mature 6 pointers that would be out of AR limits if I assume there is an 8 pt or 4pts on one side rule. Now a mature 6 pointer is definitely in a small percentage of the population, but to resolve this issue my question would be, How about a 3 points on one side rule? That would save spikes and four points. Now let's see the mature 4 point and spike pics.
