Free Trophy Score

Trophy Score......I've asked about this before if anyone has used this program......now they are having a free trial offer until August 15th.....so if you have any buck's pics that you would like scored go give this website a try....it is pretty cool....although I do not totaly agree with their estimates on how some of my deer scored.....but they give a very rough etimate......

Hunting Made Easy : TrophyScore <------Go to the bottom of the page and it will give you a code to type in once you download the program.....

Tell me and I forget. Show me and I remember. Involve me and I understand.

ETD you've expressed a lot of interest in trophy scoring, I hope you understand a program like that is only going to give you an estimate of the antlers score and not an accurate measure.
I think rather than focus your attention towards a program like that it would better for you to just learn to score antlers yourself.
If you are interested here are the links to a couple of "Official" Boone and Crockett score sheets. Both have instructions on how to measure.
With these score sheets you can practice and learn and eventually become an Official Certified Scorer for the boone and crockett and Pope and Young organizations.
Good Luck to you...

Non-Typical Whitetail and Coues Deer

P.S. of course there are other game that can be scored and YES there are score sheets for the other game as well. The Deer sheets will get you started...
Once again Good Luck to you.

Yeah I know what you mean but what I'm saying is, if you practice scoring the antlers you do have,
when you see a Rack you'll instinctively guess a score that's pretty darn close.

well time to put a bow /rifle in your hands then ETD

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky
