Default antler restrictions

The place i am going hunting at tommorow evening has antler restrictions on the bucks, saying that it has to have a minimum spread of 14 inches. How can I tell how wide the spread is from over thirty yards away? If I was to shoot a buck and the spreadends up being say13 1/2 inches what do I do?

Make sure their outside the ears

If the Spread is outside the ears you will not have an issue
