Scoring a Buck

3 posts in this topic

Stumped ! When scoring a Rack If it is a 9 pointer does the extra tine get deducted from the total ? And how do i figure out which tine that would be if it is deducted. I have 5 on one side and 4 on the other. And does that extra tine make it a non-typ?

Do a search on Pope and Young measuring form and you will find a form you can print. This will help and it will not score as a nontypical.

You always start from the brow tines G1, G2, G3, etc. The forth or shortest point (on the 5 pt side) would be deducted. Its a symetry deduction, not an abnormal point. Any point protruding from the top of the beam (that doesnt share a base with another point) is considered typical.

Remember to measure a 4th circumferance on the 4 pt side as well, you ALWAYS get 4 and only 4 H-scores.

Its realy very simple, until you start talking abnormal points and NT's it can get pretty complex.

Do what Gerry said and look for a score sheet, its pretty much self explanitory to score a typical. Good luck.

      Thanks for the heads up as I  grouse that area and my dog is very young. I know I will be carrying my 40 cal when I go up grouse hunting.

    • Perhaps immature eagles?  I don't believe they get their white head until 4-5 years of age..

    • I second the Vermilion Club-great food and they always welcome the dog (black lab) on the deck and give her water. We have been over on major holidays (July 4th, Memorial day, etc) and can always squeeze in somewhere and if not, there's "the kid" who charges $10 for "their dock".....love the place!

    • You are right, it's a grouse.

      I am not a hunter and I live in southern Minnesota, so I don't know how to identify this bird.  It walked into our campsite at Tettegoche State Park last week.  I am thinking a grouse?

      I don't have much to report, as I have not been fishing much lately, but wanted to add a topic on our quiet forum.

      I finally got a chance to go out on Mazaska this past weekend.  I tried my usual methods with almost no luck.  Fatheads on a jig and under a slip bobber.  From 9 feet down to about 25 feet.  I had a couple of bites, but that was it.

      Water temperature was still a balmy 68 degrees and a stiff wind was coming out of the southeast.  Even though I caught nothing, it was a beautiful day to be on the water last Saturday.

      One day closer to hard water season ...
