Never heard of a 13 pointer being a non typical. Non Typical usually means that the buck has unusuall antler growth. Such as drop tines, split brow tines, 3 racks, stickers going in every direction. But even if the buck has a drop tine or a split tine, doesnt necessarilly mean he is non typical. You can shoot a 19 point buck and it could have a perfect symetrical rack, this is not concidered to be a non typical buck.

Ok, for reference what is the definition of a non-typical?
Even points. Typical:4X4=8pt,5X5=10pt, 6X6=12pt

Uneven points. Non-Typical: 4X5=9pt, 5X6=11pt, 6X7=13pt

This is how it's done.

There are two classifications, Typical or non-typical for which a buck is eligible for entry into the record book in any of the three categories of gun, archery and muzzleloader.
The determination is made by looking at the gross score, the deductions and the net score after the buck has been measured. Study for a moment the record sheets for typical and non-typical state records. In the lower right corner you will find an addition/subtraction column where all the totals are carried from the top of the sheet.
When an antler point is determined to be typical, because of location on the main beam, its length is entered into columns 1 or 2. If the tine is determined to be non-typical because of location (such as a drop tine, a forked tine, beam points near the burr or if the tine comes off the side of the beam rather than the top it will be treated as a deduction on a rack that is typical in conformation or it will be an addition on a rack that is considered non-typical.
What triggers the shift from typical to non-typical entry into the book is the final score.
The non-typical score and the typical score are compared to the minimum entry score for a specific category. The total difference between the final score calculation and the minimum score determines placement.
For example: If a gun deer scores 145 typical (when the odd points are subtracted) and 166 non-typical (when the odd points are added in) the deer would be entered as a typical. It is five inches above the typical minimum of 140 but only one inch above the non-typical minimum of 165.
