I also found this on the Safari Club site: http://www.safariclub.org/trophy/trophy.htm
Looks like forms to download for score sheets. I didn't review any of the PDF files, but it does look like they have an extensive list.

I am not 100% on the SCI scores or the BC and PY scores, but I am an official scorer for the Trophy Game Records of the World. Its a system that has been around since 1978 and is founded by member of the Exotic Wildlife Association. You do not have to be a member of it to enter. Measurements are done in centimeters instead of inches, and there are no deductions for lack of symetery. This system honors the animal for the trophy it has produced. We measure everything from Whitetails to a wild boar's tusks, to a Scimitar Oryx horns. Animals are put into divisions in the method that they are taken.
There is even a category we call Incidental Acquisition which in such a case you find a dead whitetail in a creekbed. Well that animal can still be honored as such and entered into the book. Measurements are taken, the name of the place where is found is recorded, the person the discovered it. We also have divisions for Archery, Crossbow, Modern Rifle, Muzzleloader, and Handgun. Instead of a Non-Typical deer, we refer to it as Extra Typical.
Understanding wind currents and thermals in hilly, broken terrain can often be incredibly frustrating. I've found that collecting and storing milkweed seed pods during the late summer has made me a better hunter in the bluff country that I hunt. These little feather like seed dispersers will float on the lightest of air currents and will show you what the wind is not only doing right at you're location but more importantly down range. I like to use the off season to float them...
