If you are going to get a Deer head measured at the game fairs by the CIC trophy commission. Then you need not worry about the head not making a medal. After an email to TDW from this site it is now clear that if you think your head might make a medal and it doesn't then there will be no charge for measuring the head. As i see it the cic chap will weigh your deer head and look at it if he thinks its worth doing it will get done if he thinks that it is not worth doing then he will suggest you take it away. I feel this is good service as i am sure there are lots out there that would not get a head done because it might not make the grade. So go get them done i am sure there are lots of good trophys that diserve recognition.
