A: NUMBER OF
POINTS ON EACH ANTLER
To be counted a point, the projection
must be at least one inch long, with the length exceeding
width at one inch or more of length. All points measured
from tip of point to nearest edge of beam as illustrated
in Figure A. Beam tip is counted as a point, but not
measured as a point.
Number of Points on Right Antler:

Number of Points on Left Antler:
B: TIP TO TIP SPREAD
The tip to tip spread is measured between
the tips of the main beams.
Tip to Tip Spread:
C: GREATEST
SPREAD
The greatest spread is measured between
perpendiculars at a right angle to the center line
of hte skull at the widest part, whether across main
beams or points. See Figure B.
Greatest Spread:
D: 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 of Main Beams:
E: TOTAL LENGTHS OF ALL
ABNORMAL POINTS
Abnormal points are those non-typical
in location (such as points originating from a point
or from the bottom or sides of the main beam) or extra
points beyond the normal pattern of points. Measure
in the usual manner (See Figure A). If there are more
than 10 abnormal point to a side, add them together
and input in the last field.

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

G: LENGTH OF NORMAL POINTS
Normal points project from the top of
the main beam. They are measured from the nearest
edge of the main 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 point measurement (See
Figure A).

H: CIRCUMFERENCES
Circumferences are taken at the narrowest
place as detailed in Figure C for each measurement.
If the brow point is missing, take H-1 and H-2 at
the smallest place between the burr and the G-2 point.
If the G-4 point is missing, take H-4 halfway between
the G-3 point and the tip of the main beam.
