how do you count the points on your bucks? do you just count the outside points?

Anything you can hang a ring on counts as a point. Except drop tines, the ring falls off, so that is MINUS 1.

JK on the drop tines.

Depends on the game laws of your state.

This is the pretty standard practice.

Boone & Crockett, Pope & Young, and SCI all go with 1 inch minimum to be counted as a point. Anything less than that is "character". But most I know use the "ring" method.

Is the 1 inch minimum from the point to the middle of the tine that the point is coming off of? Or is it from point to base? Does that make sense?

Awesome, thanks for the link. I have bookmarked it for when I get last years buck back, and to hopefully measure this years

It has to exceed 1" before I count it.


Thats pretty funny. Didn't he just get in trouble for taking to young of a deer?

LOL. Thats a good one. That aside I use this method.

If you want to break down that 1" measurement further....For measuring purposes, the 1" point can't be wider than 1" at the base .

"To be counted a point, the projection must be at least one inch long, with the length exceeding width at one inch or more of length. All points measured from tip of point to nearest edge of beam as illustrated in Figure A. "

If anyone needs help finding your local Measurer, both BnC and PnY have a list on their sites. If you're in Mo, give me a shout, I can fix ya up!!!!
