Thanks Hiker will try to finger my way though it all and let you know what i get lol

If you get hung up, let us know. That looks like a decent bull. I'll guess 320....

well i dont know if its right but i came up with 383.25 then i took the 8 1/4 off came up with 375 so I guess that it would Be 375 LOL is that a good score???

That seems high. That bull has great browtines but the forth & fifth points are too short to score that high. Did you recheck your numbers and measuremnets? How long was his main beams?

main beem on right is 41in first point is 19in sec is 16in next is 11 1/2in then 11 3/4in then 6 1/2in

circumference F/s point 6 1/2in S/T point is 6in T /F point is 6 1/4 in F/f point is 5 1/2 in

left is 40in first point 19 3/4in the second is 17in next is14 1/2in then 12 1/2in last point is 6in

Circumference between F/S point is 6 3/4 S/T 5 3/4 T/F 5 3/4 F/f 5/ 1/4

tip to tip is 36in inside is 32 1/2in Gspread is 39in

and 6 points on both side LOL think i did it right well try again

BUDZRUZ, I'm almost there. What is the length of the 6th point on both sides?

It the circumferences the same on both antlers?

the 6th point is part of the main beem is it NOT????

thats what it shows on the sheet from B-C

I think

if not i will try it again LOL

It is part of the main beam but they still score it alone. I calculated the circumference as the same on both sides, so I didn't figure in any deductions. I guessed 7" per side for the 6th point. If that is the case, I received a total score of 315 4/8 Gross and 308 4/8 Net.

One reason, you could have came up different is you'll need to calculate the inches as 8ths. So a half will be 4/8, 3/4 would be 6/8...etc. I hope that helps.
