Brow tines

What is the distance a point must be from the burr to be a legal point? In the digest a brow tine is defined as the point immediately above the antler burr.In the dictionary immediately is defined as "instantly,at once,no space between", how far from the burr can the point be to be legal? jeff

Re: Brow tines

The digests definition is saying that the brow tines position is basically next to the burr,and their illustration shows it that way.

Re: Brow tines

Any point must be 1 inch to be counted as a point.

Re: Brow tines

In the western part of PA,the definition states two up,excluding the brow tine,then gives the definition of a brow tine.

Re: Brow tines

They sure make it cornfusin' don't they? No such thing as a management buck in PA. LOL

An archer shoots his targets as far as he can. A bowhunter shoots his target as close as possible.

Re: Brow tines

actually there is next nothing in terms of buck management.

I spoke directly with an accredited wildlife biologist and he stated PA's buck only first week is the dumbest thing we could possibly do. It was noted biologists voted against it but our spineless leaders caved to the bar room management of our deer.

This is incorrect. In most of the state it's 3 to a side including the brow tine. However, for some WMU's here in the western part of the state its 3 up excluding the brow tine...not 2 up excluding the brow tine.

1shot,you are correct it is 3 up,my bad! but the brow tine definition is not accurate to the illustration in the digest.So which is right,the illustration or the definition?

Re: Brow tines

Page 33 of the digest lays it out.

<span style="font-weight: bold">"A point is defined as any antler projection (including the brow tine) at least one inch in length from base to tip. The brow tine is the point immediately above the antler burr."</span>

Re: Brow tines

I think the term "three up" is misleading. I don't consider the main beam as being "up".

I prefer to consider it "TWO up", as it is simpler for me to count from the tip of the main beam inward, where I just look for (at least) two tines to be "up" off the main beam (disregarding the brow tines).

So it would be the two up + the main beam = 3. This is the minimum legal in the Western parts.
