    HA! I also do game cheat codes in my spare time :ninja:

    Actually that was a reply I made on the first page that the spammer copied and reposted. Spammers do that pretty often, especially on our old blog reply system.

    I am going to delete the spam post now and ban the account :tu:

    Good job. I am an official measurer for P&Y, B&C and WBBC and like to see the interest and a well done instruction on this forum.

    Yes we use a cable with an alligator clip as well as the 1/4" tape measures. One tape has a hook and one a loop. One reason we do not use plastic or cloth tapes is they stretch giving incorrect measurements. A stretched tape would give a lower number if you think about it.
    The tape is better for circumference measurement. The cable can be used to establish base line and draw the line on the bottom with a sharp pencil. If you draw on the antler be sure to erase after finishing measuring or else the graphite will permanently leave a mark.

    There are books from P&Y to instruct on measuring and there is a measurers manual from each with detailed instructions for all animals they recognize. I do not think that one needs to be an official measurer to purchase these but I could be wrong.

    Thank you so much for this! I scored my first set of antlers the other day and I felt like I had no idea what I was doing even though I was following the P&Y sheet. I think I will re score them!
