get a tape measure , or a string , wrap it where the P&Y score sheet says to measure , then put down what you get.... i think there is a link floating around somewhere, maybe on the rules thing

Here's the B&C link on scoring Whitetails. It will calculate your scoring for you.

Typical

Non-Typical

Hope this helps!

I'm not sure how your team will do it. I know team 5 will need a yard stick to measure theirs.

Zak - its easy!

After you shoot your buck - pull the ears back and grab the two skinny spikes comming from the top of the head. Just measure these from the base to the tip. Then add the distance between the tip

Example:

left spike 4"
right spike 5"
Spread - 3.5"

Thats 12.5" P&Y

to make it easy for ya zak........you need to measure 3 diameters of the main beam, the g-1 to g-whatever, inside spread, outside spread, kickers and things like that will be a deduction.
