When scoring a pronghorn and your third mass measurement lands on the prong do you measure around the prong? Thanks Warren

In the case you mentioned The measurement is taken immediately above the prong.

As Nick shows, it is taken below any swelling of the prong. As a side note, Pope and Young, unlike Boone & Crockett, requires that two mass measurements be taken below the prong and two above the prong. B&C will allow three to occur below the prong when the prong occurs exceptionally high on the horn.

This is a common problem people make...too many mass measurements under the prong. It turns a mid 70`s into a low 80`s goat.

That's true, Franklin. It also goes to show how a buck with overall short horns, but good mass above the prong can end up scoring much higher than a tall buck with skinny tops
