When scoring a pronghorn and your third mass measurement lands on the prong do you measure around the prong? Thanks Warren
From: Nick Muche
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.
Thanks for the replies.
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
