  They count on the over all score but when thinking about a true 3 or 4 point it has to come from the main frame. I think i am not alone on this.

i always thought. if its a point its a point.
"Right now, I am thinking that If my grandmother was here, she would be lecturing me about how there are poor people in Africa, that would just love to have a Ruger, I would just say "Great, granny, lets just ship all the Rugers to Africa!"

 I agree addict, but if someone told you they got a 4 point what do you think of?? I think of a main frame 4 point.

Nice pretty buck huntnphool. I saw a nice thick tall and fairly wide 2x3 today but unfortunatly I forgot the camera at home :'(. He was what I would guess at about 20 inches wide. Saw One in august that was about 25 or 26 inches wide with a 4 about the same and a 30 incher. Got one terrible pic of the big boy and then the camera died so no sweet high country pics of those boys they looked to eb very hefty and tan colored prolly near 250-300 pounds on hoof. well enough stories Ill try to remember camera tomorrow.

when I think of 3 point, I think of a 1X2..... But I'm from the east coast and we can all count past five so we count them all :P  I guess you westerners have trouble counting when you have to use more than one hand :chuckle: :chuckle:

1x2 is a 3? I call those trikes  :chuckle:
And for your info...that other hand is to hold the beer! :IBCOOL:

Coasthunter..... Most trophy hunters or guys that are serious about Muleys only count whats on the main frame.  A four point is 4 points on one side with or without eyeguards.  You'll hear it said this way....I shot a nice 4 point tday with eyeguards, if it didn't have them it would be I shot a nice 4 point today.  Whitetails get one side counted and most of the time eyeguards get counted as they are darn near as big as the average point.  I shot a 4 point today is one f Miles 8 pointers.  He Miles...did you see the picture of the shedding buck I had on my frosty thread.   Its almost time.

If he is mostly typical, you'd say 4 pointer with a couple stickers and double eyeguards.  You wouldn't say 8 pointer.
This is just elitest talk by the way so you sound cool by the campfire with the good ole' boys.  You can call it whatever you want. :)

Once they get more than about  8 good poits per side, you can count them all    8x9  6x9 still adding with eyeguards.

The COOOL thing to do is not count the eyeguards but add them.

I should have known that I would get that kind of logic from an east coaster.  You almost had me on teh fish, then I remembered you guys do nothing but catch Bass and Crappie, so you probably need all the inches you can get. :chuckle:

There ya go jackelope!  at least someone around here can count ;)  If it grows it, then why not count it?  When you catch a fish you don't measure from the gills back but then say...... Man it had a monster head though :chuckle: :chuckle:  If you guys only count one side,  then how come you count both when it comes to score.  If you're only going to count one side, then you should only score one side :P  Makes sense!
