That sounds good Tim, to be honest, I couldn't remember (too much going on in this brain..lol) what we did in the past contest....

For this contest, we'll measure the velvet bucks as is.....measure them the same as any other antlered deer....

BUT for the sake of knowledge, what exactly is the written rule for P&Y?
The only thing I could find on the P&Yweb site was that they allow them in velvet. They are measured the same as hard antlered but there is a box to check in the score cardthat it is a velvet buck.I would have thought they had a seperate catigory for velvet bucks and not lumped them in with hard antlered but I couldn't find anything.

Hopefully someone knows more.

Tim

No seperate catagory.

Ones with a check mark allowed.

There is a separate category for velvet bucks in the P&Y records program. They are scored the same as hard antler bucks as well.[/align]

Thanks to the people that remember the past rules. Maybe this should be added to the Official Rules for next year so some other idiot like myself doesn't bring it up? [8D]

You bust yourtailto make this great Rob and we appreciate all your hard work as well as the work of the other mods that make this such a great site.

Thanks Dave, I'll tweak the rules to include wording for velvet bucks. Good idea.

In the actual book, they record the velvets separately, but they're in the same category. For what it's worth, a monster that qualifies for B&C must have the velvet stripped off I believe. Boone and Crockett does not accept velvet entries, but Pope and Young does.

Probably because there aren't many places you can hunt velvet bucks with a rifle but there are a lot where you can hunt them with a bow.

Agreed, although a buck taken via bow can be registered in Boone and Crockett.

I'm just gonna buy a set of these babies on ebay, so then I won't have to worry about all this complicated math andscoring. I already know they tape out to 193" with a 20" estimated spread.

So while you guys are running around with tape measures and calipers and using online calculators - I'll just duct tape these puppiesonto the head of my fawn doe, and credit Team 13 with 193".



It's gonna look like a Chihuahua wearing an elk rack.
