Default P&Y Scoring system

I've been asked to bring this to all of the participants to decide on.

Do we want to follow the OfficialP&Y Scoring system for deer? How long to wait and measure and score? What's typically been done?What's everyone's thoughts on this issue? Thanks.

It has already been decided.

Use the gross score, before deductions.

No waiting period, you can measure him before you field dress him if you want to.

If he will stand still long enough, I might measure him before I release my arrow.

I thought it was P&Y Gross, Green Score. But then, I may be wrong!

i thought we always green scored them...no waiting period. waiting would kinda hinder guys that take them to the taxidermist. JMO...i know my first decint bowkill buck is getting mounted..and i wont be bugging my taxidermist 60days later(drying period i believe) to let me measure my rack for an online, fun, contest...and we wont wait a year+ to declare the winners of the contest because their racks were at the taxidermists lol....

It is the P&Y Green/ Gross score but what we discussed via PM was more, how does this apply to Velvet deer. The one we have may very well be the only one necessary for the answer but I did not know the answer.

Do you measure a velvet buck as is..?

Thanks Rob. I wasn't sure about stating specifically about a velvet deer.

In the past contests, the velvet bucks were measured the same as the other bucks without velvet. Even if it gainedahunter a couple extra inches... is it that big of a deal in the main scheme of things?? There won't be many taken.Next someone will want all the bucks to be measured by an official measurer cause someone might not do it right. Let's not makeit any harder then it needs to be. It worked forthe 3 other pastcontests.

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?
