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.

      Made it out to North Center today by sunken island. Not very good, one perch. Marking them just not committing. Lots of water on ice, but ice is fine. 17 inches.    As far as north access, off Nelson road on east side there is an access. Put money in the box and don't be a Richard, I believe it is owned by a farmer and let's people use

      Lake St Clair is a blast. If you hit vermilion at the right time it will be right up there with that. No reason you can't have a 100 fish day with a good chance at many big fish. Going by my phone pictures I had a great day on June 17 a few years back ha. Theres no shortage of rocky shorelines and docks. I'm a fan of tubes myself but I know guys love their senkos.    I'm sure you'll get some more specific responses. Wish I had more time to chase them myself
