Default Question about deer in velvet scoring

With so many early seasons going on in Sept. What is the ruleing on the scoring of a velvet clad buck? How will this be handled and addressed if it were to happen?

I think since this is just a friendly competition, if you are lucky enough to be able to take a buck in velvet, it should be scored as is.

So is this contest going to get down to splitting hairs? Bobby

No they are just going to measure the rack

Splitting hairs??? I believe it is something that could very well happen and I thought it would be best to address it prior to it happening rather than after.

Sit back take a deep breath and chill.

LOL @ Splitting hairs!!!

I agree with MO_Bowhnter and GroundHunter - friendly competition and if ur lucky to shoot a big buck in velvet then u deserve the full benefit of our gross green score

I like the idea of green scores. Should I be lucky enough to arrow a nice buck in velvet I don't think I'd scrape the antlers to get a score. A nice buck in velvet on my wall is more important then a scraped rack for bragging rights IMO.

I like friendly competitions.

For the record I am not against velvet bucks in the contest.

We have 2 hunters whos season starts the first couple days of sept. and wanted a rule in place if / before one would harvest one.
