I remember you guys doing

I remember you guys doing this next year, but I am wondering how it would work with muleys.  I think the average whitetail that people get is smaller than the average whitetail.

Plus, for the most part, archery hunting for mule deer is alot harder than it is for whitetail.  Not saying whitetail is easy, so don't jump on me ::whistling:  but mule deer, with their wide open habitat and lower overall population numbers, it's tougher.

I'll check out the contest.

There are conversions for

There are conversions for muleys which are normally bigger and blacktails which are normally smaller. Here is the conversion numbers for a muley to whitetail.

muley's = 145" x .862 = 124.99" The math isn't exact. But, if you shot a mule deer that was 145", it would basically equal a 125" whitetail. so take teh overall score of the muley and multiply it by .862 and you will have the equal score of a whitetail. Join the contest and have some fun!!!!!

There is a formula for scoring whitetails, muleys, and blacktails because there is a size difference. Muleys are naturally bigger than whitetails and whitetails are naturally bigger than blacktails. With this formula it's puts all 3 on an even playing field.
