I'm new to California and new to black-tailed deer and needed clarification on this deer I saw yesterday. I have a tag for a forked buck here in california and want to make sure that this isn't a legal buck. I've read the definition for forked-horned buck but wasn't sure if there was another regulation that allowed me to shoot his deer.


Thanks

From what I can see ....nope ... not legal. If it had a fork on at least one of those horns ( a fork big enough to hang a ring from ) then it would be legal. Then it would be kindly named a "spork" .
That IS a big spike !

Look for 2 points on each or either side and you should be good to let it rip

That one in the photos, it not legal. Huge spike tho. Weird.

Thanks. Also it seemed to still have velvet, shouldn't the velvet have been scraped off by now?

big ole spike, I wonder if he will ever branch out or the lion needs to take him out of the gene pool.
