1. ## Trophy Weights

Can anyone shed any light on a ball part figure of a Roe skull and antlers (minus lower jaw of course) in order for it to make either bronze, silver or gold. I realise there more factors invloved but for example would a 500 gram head be near to bronze , there must be a rough weight guideline?

2. There is a very rough guideline which was once given to me by one of the judges.
Total weight and minus 90 grams if not jaw cut.
over 365 > Bronze.
over 420 > Silver.
over 500 > Gold.

3. Thanks for that...it gives me an idea as I have an uncut head which is 495 and wondered if it was worth getting scored

Cheers

4. 495 - 90 = 405 = Good Bronze!
There are other factors though and it is a rough guide so it might make silver if you are lucky.

5. I take it if it weighs in at 500grms it will make bronze never had one not do at that weight 550 grms will be a close silver and 600 will make gold.

6. They can vary dramatically and the volume can be a big reason for that.Before i score mine,i roughly add on about 8 points more for volume than a dry weight.So,if the head weighed 500g,take off the 90 deduction giving you 410g which equals 41 points for dry weight.I would then add 8 points giving it 49 for volume.Its far from exact but it gives me a figure before i measure it correctly.If your head was the 500g,with a decent length of around the 9 inch mark with a good span and average beauty points,then it should be very close to a silver,and the very least a very good bronze.

7. Here is a good formula I saw posted on another forum a while back.

500g - 20 x 0.23 = 110.40 cic.

If the head is regular it works out very close every time.

Yes, get it done by the CIC panel.
I had one measured at the Midland Game Fair by the CIC for an Irish guest. It weighed 500 gramms.
It was shot at the end of April and was a narrow head which got no points for `inside span`, colour was mediocre and only received 2 points. Final score was 108.55 CIC points. [Bronze]
There is a statutory drying out period of 90 days required also.
The CIC medals are huge.
