That is the regulation and what is enforceable. It really doesn’t matter how it is worded or pictured in the digest. The fact is the regulation very clearly makes ANY buck with four points on an antler, or three about where the brow tine should be, legal in the applicable WMUs. Therefore, the buck in question is a legal buck anywhere in the state since all of the four points on the antler are over an inch in length and thus a legal point.

This post is from another active thread, the law as written is excluding the brow tine in the western side of the state,the brow tine simply does not count as a legal point. It clearly states 3 or more points on one antler.
They never got rid of the 4 point rule,they just added the 3 up rule,they both apply.
The 3 up rule as printed in the digest is misleading. The 4 point rule still applies along with the 3 up rule in Wildlife Management Units 1A, 1B, 2A, 2B and 2D.
You just can't count the brow tine even if it is a foot long!!! lol
