How many sub-legal bucks do you think are accidentally killed in zones with the 3-point restriction and then left for the coyotes?

lets be honest guys only way three points works if its state wide...............
This happens in PA as I said and that state has state-wide ARs (3/side in most with some areas 4/side). It's like anything else, you have your ethical hunters and your non-ethical hunters. Some guys are going to pull the trigger if they see antlers and hope the buck is legal when it falls. Not ethical.

I don't see how the APR would cause something like this. If the law states 3 pts on one side, then it is up to that hunter to be sure of the target
Like Bucksnbows said . . . . .
One of my buddies shot a buck this year and luckily it was a nice 8. But what bothered me is he said it was too dark to know for sure and he figured it was "big enough".

I know a bunch of guys that have this attitude. They shoot first and count points later. And it's guys in their 40s, 50s and 60s, that have been hunting a long time. It's not the young hunters, they tend to be the more responsible ones.
I could see a young or new hunter making the mistake of shooting first and checking points later in the heat of the moment.
