Getting Started

All measurements must be made with a 1/4-inch wide flexible steel tape to the nearest one-eighth of an inch. (Note: A flexible steel cable can be used to measure points and main beams only.)

Enter fractional figures in eighths, without reduction. For example, if a point measures 7 and 2/8 inches, you would enter 7 2/8 in the space provided.

A: Number Of Points On Each Antler

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. Beam tip is counted as a point, but not measured as a point.

Number of Points on Right Antler: Number of Points on Left Antler:

B: Tip To Tip Spread

The tip to tip spread is measured between the tips of the main beams. See Figure B. Tip to Tip Spread:

C: Greatest Spread

The greatest spread is measured between perpendiculars at a right angle to the center line of the skull at the widest part, whether across main beams or points. See Figure B. Greatest Spread:

D: Inside Spread Of Main Beams

The inside spread of main beams is measured at a right angle to the center line of the skull at the widest point between main beams. See Figure B. Your Spread Credit will be automatically calculated. Inside Spread of Main Beams:

E: Total Lengths Of All Abnormal Points

Abnormal points are those non-typical in location or pattern occurring below the G-4 point. Measure in usual manner and record in appropriate blanks.


F: 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. RIGHT ANTLER ----- LEFT ANTLER

G: Length Of Normal Points

Normal points project from the top or front of the main beam in the general patter illustrated in Figure C. They are measured from the nearest edge of the main beam over the outer curve 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 Figures A and C).

G-2. Length - Second Point

G-3. Length - Third Point

G-4. Length - Fourth Point

G-5. Length - Fifth Point

G-6. Length - Sixth Point, if present

G-7. Length - Seventh Point, if present

H: Circumferences

Circumferences are taken at the narrowest place as detailed in Figure C for each measurement.


H-1. Between First and second Points

H-2. Between Second and Third Points

H-3. Between Third and Fourth Points

H-4. Between Fourth and Fifth Points

I. Length Of Crown Points

From the well-defined Royal on out to the end of the beam, all points other than the normal points in their typical locations are Crown Points. This includes points occurring on the Royal, on other normal point, on Crown Points, and on the bottom and sides of main beam after the Royal. Measure and record in appropriate blanks provided below.
