Tip #10 - Become a Master at Estimating Antler Size on the Hoof

Many trophy hunters mistakenly harvest smaller-antlered bucks because they misjudged antler size first. 

Study antlers of mounted bucks on display at your state’s annual deer show.  Carefully guess the gross B&C score. 

Compare your estimates to the actual scores and refine your techniques where you missed the mark the most. 

Practice until you can look at a buck and nearly instantaneously arrive at an accurate score estimate.
