Not really possible bc if the 1st quarter falls in the prong, you take the measurement below the prong. Never seen one like that.The more antelope I kill the more I realize my judgment isn't very good, haha. But I would agree that he is closer to 14 inches tall. I don't know about mass. Prongs almost look low enough that the second circumference measurement would be above the prong, if thats even possible?
Yeah that sounds right. Been a long time since I scored an antelope. Second quarter measurement is taken directly above the prong if it falls on the prong right?Not really possible bc if the 1st quarter falls in the prong, you take the measurement below the prong. Never seen one like that.
Were the horns removed before scoring? I expect that that invalidates an official score.
TY for the info.
Shrinkage of horns (pronghorns, goats, etc.) has been a concern of many trophy owners over the years. It is acceptable to remove horns from the skull, clean them, and then have them reset with a bonding substance as long as the horns are not altered in the process. If a bonding substance is used to enhance the horn's circumference, the trophy may be disqualified.
Thanks. I would have guessed your last years buck to score higher than it ended up scoring as well. It does look tall.Thank you all for the great feedback! I love this stuff. Partly because it is so difficult.
npaden that is a beautiful buck!
Buzz your wife's buck is awesome.
Here is the buck that fooled me last year. I thought he was over 80" when I saw him multiple times in the summer. Embarrassed to say I thought he was around 17". He ended up being 15 1/8" long with 5 1/2" prongs. I guess the thin mass made him look longer to me. He scored 77 and change.
