ON-LINE SCORING STEP ONE - Entering Your Measurements
Figure A Figure B
All measurements must be made with a 1/4-inch wide flexible steel tape to the nearest one-eighth of an inch. 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. GREATEST SPREAD
The greatest spread is measured between perpendiculars at a right angle to the center line of the skull.

Greatest Spread:

B. TIP TO TIP SPREAD
The tip to tip spread is measured between the tips of the horns.
Tip to Tip Spread:
C. LENGTH OF HORN
The length of horn is measured along the center of the upper horn surface, staying within the curve of the horn as illustrated, to a point in line with the tip. Attempt to free the connective tissue between the horns at the center of the boss to determine the lowest point of horn material on each side. Hook the tape under the lowest point of the horn and measure the length of the horn, with the measurement line maintained in the center of the upper surface of horn following the converging lines to the horn tip.
Length of Right Horn: Length of Left Horn:
D-1. WIDTH OF BOSS
The width of the boss is measured with calipers at the greatest width of the boss, with the measurement line forming a right angle with the horn axis. It is often helpful to measure D-1 before C, marking the midpoint of the boss as the correct path of C.
Boss width of Right Horn: Boss width of Left Horn:
D-2-4. HORN CIRCUMFERENCES
Divide Measurement C of the longer horn by four. Starting at the base, mark both horns at these quarters (even though the other horn is shorter). Then, using calipers, measure the width of the boss at D-2, making sure the measurement is at a right angle to the horn axis and in line with the D-2 mark. Circumferences are then measured at D-3 and D-4, with measurements being taken at right angles to the horn axis.
