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. Length of Main Beam The length of the main beam is measured from the center of the lowest outside edge of the burr over the outer side to the most distant point of the main beam. The beginning point is on the burr where the center line along the outer side of the beam intersects the burr, then generally following Line F as shown in Figure C.

Length of First Point Normal points project from what is tonalin cla 1000mg top of the main beam.

They are measured from the nearest edge of the main beam over the outer yo to the tip. Lay the tape along the outer curve of the beam so that the top edge of the tape coincides with the top edge of the beam on both sides of the point to determine the baseline for point measurement See Figure A. Length of Second Point.

Length of Third Point. Length of Fourth Point. If the brow point is missing, take Sscore and H-2 at the smallest place between the burr and the G-2 point. If the G-4 point is missing, take H-4 halfway between the G-3 point and the tip of the main beam.

Finish Scoring Trophy. So we must and we will.

Nov 02,  · Look for width at the main beam—that is where score is measured. The ears of an alert buck, with his ears forward for listening, usually measure 22 to 26 inches wide. Any buck with antlers wider than his ears is worth a second look, especially if he has several inches to spare on each side.

Most mule deer hunters get caught up in the outside spread when in reality, the actual measurement taken will be on the inside spread of the main beams. It takes more than just being 30 inches wide to make a truly huge mule deer. This Alberta buck has it all. Width, tine length, eye guards, mass, and a good main beam. When field judging mule deer, start towards the bottom and work your way up.

As a general rule, mule deer have short brow tines compared to whitetails. Mass has saved the lives of many, many mule deer bucks… when a buck has good mass, his tines look short , and some hunters will let him walk… oops.

What a mule deer lacks in tine length, he can make up for in mass. When field judging mule deer, be sure to check all angles before making a decision to shoot or let him walk.

Main beam length can be deceiving , especially if the only view you get is head-on. In most instances, if a buck has good width, the main beams should be good as well.

Width and main beam measurements usually go hand in hand and these two measurements will usually be within an inch or so of each other. There are bucks out there that will blow this little theory out of the water, but they are the exception to the rule… with them you will just have to guess.

One of the most difficult aspects of field judging mule deer is symmetry, or the scoring balance between the two sides of a bucks rack. It is quite easy to judge the symmetry of tine length, but main beam, can be very difficult to judge because it swoops to the rear and then juts forward and can trick the eye.

While many bucks first appear to have unbalanced antlers, when scored are quite symmetrical. Accurately field judging mule deer at this stage of the season can be tough.

Sometimes, there is no need to go through these steps. Most trophy bucks have at least a couple of these characteristics, but very few have all of them.
