Minimum Antler Spreads

In case you missed the story over at the Black Bear Blog, Texas has made a new ruling about antler sizes and shooting bucks. Here's the deal as I understand it.

Any buck that is a spikehorn - that is as long as neither side has branched - can be shot. After that, the spread between horns has to be at least 13 inches.

They say Texas hunters want bigger deer! Will this do it?

What kind of tools do they give you to measure the antler spread while out hunting? Do they train "Texas" deer to stand still while you dig out your ruler to measure it?
