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.

      You are paying for it one way or another it is worked in the rental fee or you pay at the road I guess its a matter of preference. Places I go at milacs always had the road pass "included" I think when I rented from up north rental on red I had to buy a pass going out of rogers.   Beacon Harbor it was included

      Fun day today fishing with Rick G and Jim Uran. Caught a lot of fish and we kept some nice ones for the tummy   Rick got biggest at 12 3/8.  And we got into some neat looking party crappies also. LOL  @Rick G  @Jim Uran   Hopped in the shower as soon as I got home to warm my wet arse up. Sleet and snowy day. Enjoying a glass of Pinot Noir right now and fish fry time Thursday night. THX for the maple syrup Jim ! !
