    Thoughts on getting this measured

    Looks as though skull and antlers are wet so not a dry weight. Antlers are very slight and not of medal class....

    Long head, and if you don't mind my saying not a particularly attractive head. Depends on the weight but it might go bronze. You have noting to loose taking it to get it measured. You might even end up being surprised as its never easy to tell from just a photo.

    Either way good luck with it.

    Cheers malc.

    never been 1 for medals .... But the Mrs bought new scales so I thought I'd weigh it. I'll agree it's horrible to look at but it carries a wee bit of weight.

    Pop it into Bushwear in Perth when you're down. I think you don't pay anything if it doesn't make a medal. It will be interesting to go through the exercise.
    Good hunting.

ID:	73016Here is the scoring from Moy fair. Unfortunately it wasn't good enough........but had weight.

    I had 2 go up to Moy at nearly the exact same weight as yours. One went 101.1 and the other 107.58. Done by CIC though. That is the first time I have seen the BASC one and it really does leave the whole system wide open for a bit of cheating dare I say it, especially the weight deductions of 5 and 10% for wet weight. For instance both of mine dropped nearer 13%. Think that discussion has been had on another thread though. Will post up the photos when I get in the house for a comparison.
