    Texas County is not an antler-restricted county, so as long as the person had an antlerless or any-deer permit, it’s legal. Sixty-nine counties have restrictions such that a deer has to have 4 points on one side of the antlers to legally take a deer with an antlered deer permit. In those counties, bucks with spikes longer than 3 inches, or between 1 and 3 points on a side are protected. – Jo
