SCORING YOUR TROPHY

ON-LINE SCORING STEP ONE - 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. 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 SHEEP: bighorn desert Dall's Stone's
A: GREATES SPREAD
The greatest spread is measured between perpendiculars at a right angle to the center line of the skull. It is often the tip to tip spread as well. See Figure A.

Greatest Spread:

B: TIPT 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 from the lowest point in front on the outer curve to a point in line with the tip. DO NOT press tape into depressions. The low point of the outer curve of the horn is considered to be the low point of the frontal portion of the horn, situated above and slightly medial to the eye socket (not the outside edge). Use a straight edge, perpendicular to the horn axis, to end the measurement on broomed horns. See Figures A and B.
Length of Right Horn: Length of Left Horn:
D-1. CIRCUMFERENCE OF BASE
The circumference of the base is measured at a right angle to the axis of the horn. DO NOT follow the irregular edge of the horn; the line of measurement must be entirely on horn material. See Figure C.
Base of Right Horn: Base 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) and measure the circumferences at these marks, with measurements taken at right angles to the horn axis.
