ON-LINE SCORING STEP TWO - Entering Your Measurements
Figure A Figure C

Figure B

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.

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.
