  • Buck Point Credit Scoring:
    • Measurement requirements:
      • Minimum point length is 1" measured from the base of where the tine meets the beam.
        • Rounding up measurement is not permitted in 1" requirement.
      • Measure to the nearest 1/2"
        • Example:
          • 1.0" to 1.24" = 1.0"  (Rounded down)
          • 1.25" to 1.49" = 1.5"  (Rounded up)
          • 1.5" to 1.74" = 1.5" (Rounded down)
          • 1.75" to 2.0" = 2.0" (Rounded up)
      • A rigid or flexible tape may be used.
    • Closeup photos of points not clearly visible or of questionable length must be provided if needed/requested by NY Woods & Water admin/moderators.  Please do your best, this rarely comes up as an issue.
    • Spike bucks are considered to have only beams and therefore no tines and no qualifying tine measurements.  However a spike with a left and right beam does qualify for spread measurements.

Mairead had a Great  hunt.  After spooking on walking  in, and then having a small fawn comin behind  her as she watched the buck come across the field and wasn't comfortable taking the shot it entered the woods and stopped to feed on some nuts. she waited it stepped  out from behind tree raised her head and bang!  Deer went 40 yards.  Her 1st deer ever and the 1st on the new property her dad bought adjacent to mine. ( was  on the property by about 10 yards..  ) 

Used the same single shot 30/30 both her brothers  took  their 1st deer with after we had to ad a comb extension so her cheek would  hit the stock properly. She got a nice 5pt.  10 in spread with a broken brow or would of been a 6pt.. Both g 2 were 3 in .  Never saw her smile so much and loved to her her story at  lunch.   Her and her dad got it cut up and we were all able to make our friends wedding in the afternoon.

@nywaw.. both are scored. Think I did it correctly, lol.

And I do have the confirmation numbers for both, but there wasn't any field for me to add them. 

I updated your forms, and I also added another "Stock Reply" for Youth Deer Contest Entry and Adult Deer Contest Entry forms :up:
