Default Scoring Question

Maybe some pope and young or boone and crockett scorers can help me out with a question. My uncle has a little qdm program going on his property and we score all our deer but I have a question on one of my cousins rack. It is a 12pt buck with normal G-1 and G-2 points but at the g-3's there are two points coming out of a shared base off the main beam on both sides. The g-4's are normal then. All four points coming out of the shared base at the g3 postion are about 5 inches. Should this be scored as a nontypical or a typical 12?

Default RE: Scoring Question

It would be scored as is: Typical. I am not a official scorer but have scored a number of deer, that is what I would do and have been taught. However you mentined they share the same base position on the main beam, does this mean they are actually forks or their is really no seperation between the 2 points, like in G1 & G2. B/C if the come off the main beam (regardless of spacing), they would be scored as G3 and G4. Then the 4H measurements would be as per usual and done in the crock of those 2 points) Again that is my experience and teaching, some body may prove this to be wrong. But it sounds like a typical to me from your description.

It's pretty hard to explain exactly how they sit. I'll have to try and scan a pic to give a better look at what I mean. There really is no separation to the points at the base One g3 goes straight up and the other goes at about a 15 degree angle to the inside. They seem to share the same base for about one inch.

If they share a common base, then one point is determined to be typical, and the other would be scored as non-typical.

I'm no expert but A non typical is when the deductions are greater than the points scoring? Correct? The fork would be deductions of the gross to give the net??

Hunt for the sport, share the outdoors and most of all be safe and enjoy it......know your
back stop when shooting!!

Ok I think you can score this deer either way, deduction on the fork for a typical or as a non-typical with the fork(s) add in as non-typical points for a total score. I pulled this statement for a non-typical score sheet from B&C:

Abnormal points are those non-typical in location (such as points originating from a point or from the bottom or sides of the main beam) or extra points beyond the normal pattern of points. Measure in the usual manner (See Figure A). If there are more than 10 abnormal point to a side, add them together and input in the last field.

You can find scoring info/sheets at: boone-ckrockett.org

Hope this helps.
