    I am not a trophy stalker so am interested in the views of the folk that know about these things. Shot this chap last night. Is it worth getting
    measured ?

    In your experience does it look like it may be worthwhile ? Is the weighing and measuring something I can do to get a better idea of whether it would be worth it or do I have to send it off ?

    Yes weight would give a good idea of worth but no guarantee. Length give an idea of mass photos can be hard to judge. Eg I shot one in april I think might make it. 24 CM and 485 grm and steady.

    I was once told not to cut the skull on anything you want measured. Apparently you get more points intact for some reason

    Okay will clean it up, weigh scull and measure antlers. See where that gets me.

    Hiya

    You wont know for sure until measured after prescribed 90days drying. Has to be measured by CIC or BASC measurement system (dont go there as to why 2 systems! Thread on SD), by an approved Judge. I use CIC.
    I have one that is very similar - long but not thick, measured out as bronze.

    Completed my first go at skinning, boiling and bleaching a skull. Bought some powder from Bushwear and it was a total waste of time and money. Ended up at Sallys buying some hydrogen peroxide paste. Pretty pleased with the result. Is it now 90 days from now or is it 90 days from day it was dropped ?
