KIND OF CARIBOU:
mountain
woodland
barren ground
Central Canada barren ground
Quebec-Labrador
A. TIP TO TIP SPREAD
The tip to tip spread is measured between
the tips of the main beams.
Tip to Tip Spread:

B. 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:
C. 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:
D. NUMBER OF POINTS
To be counted a point, a projection
must be at least one-half inch long, with length exceeding
width at one-half inch or more of length. The beam
tip is counted as a point, but not measured as a point.
There are no "abnormal" points on a caribou.

E. 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 point of beginning is that point
on the burr where the center line along the outer
side of the beam intersects the burr, then generally
following Line E as shown in Figure C.

F. LENGTH OF BROW/POINTS
The length of points are measured from
the nearest edge of the 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 each point measurement.

G. WIDTH OF PALMS
The width of the brow is measured in
a straight line from the top edge to the lower edge,
as illustrated in Figure C, with measurement line
at a right angle to the the main axis of brow. The
width of the top palm is measured from midpoint of
the lower edge of the main beam to midpoint of a dip
between points, at the widest part of palm. The line
of measurement begins and ends at midpoints of palm
edges, which gives credit for palm thickness.

H. CIRCUMFERENCES
Circumferences are taken at the narrowest
place as detailed in Figure C. If the brow point is
missing, take H-1 at the smallest place between the
burr and the bez point. If the rear point is missing,
take H-2 and H-3 measurements at the smallest place
between the bez and first top point. Do not depress
the tape into any dips of the palm or main beam.
