    Many of us get WAY too excited or simply rush it or just don't know how to properly do it.

    This post is not a blast or attack on anyone but an encouragement to do the following:

    -Watch scoring videos...helps tremendously.
    -Go slow and take time, never trust that first score.
    -Put the first scores aside and not visible...do the whole thing a second time and start with the opposite antler you did the first time. Compare once done with first one...any glaring issues...figure out why.

    -Most official scorers are a free service, find one and have them do it....many taxidermists are scorers with tons of experience...take advantage of em.

    -Eyeball other known scores of deer you trust...if your 145 looks smaller than that 132 you know was officially scored...something may be wrong.



    *Scores don't mean anything to why many of harvest, myself included...but once harvested we should desire an accurate score.

    God bless all blessed this year that scoring becomes something which needs done.


    For ballsack scoring please let #ihuntfat know aka B Hicks.
