Below is a link for B&C typical mule deer scoring system.

Change to rule # 4 on 9/28/11 at 5:00 pm eastern standard time. To simplify the scoring method of Antlers we will use a point method based on the number of points on the antlers. Any point on the antlers that you are capable of hanging a ring from will count as 50 points.
In the case of a tie where a buck or bucks are involved in the score, we will go to the Boone and Crocket scoring system to break the tie.
