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.

      I've been scouting public land like crazy to find some spots for upcoming archery and the spring turkey season and haven't found a shed yet. I even ventured into a sure bedding area hoping I'd see one in there and no dice.    It shouldn't be too much longer.

      No one else getting concerned with the Wild's lack of intensity??? darn good when they want to be and awful mediocre when not buzzing....... Been a long time since I watched them play 3 full periods of real hockey.....

      Just looked at the harbor cam in canal park and looked like there was two guys out fishing from the pier. Now that the gates are open I would say that's what they were doing. Feel free to share any reports you have or would like to share. Good luck all!

      I grew up in this area and if walk in a ways  you can be all by yourself. Best time deer hunting can be during duck season when people are moving the deer.
