Can some of you guys who are in the know post some of your tips and tricks to get a rough score on a bull.

I am well aware of the basics, tine length is #1, then beam lenght and spread kind of get fuzzy.

What I am use to is whitetails, and you start by assuming 15" to 17" to the tip of the ears, then you see how many inches past the ears it goes. Then look at tine length in relation, and see if there are any weaknesses. Main beams, you hope to get a profile to see how far out it comes and if they curl in. After looking at lots of deer, you can start pretty easily start getting within 10 inches on a final score.

Also are there any good books out there on this??????
