    Measuring a possible medal

    I have a roe skull (uncut) which is now 2 months post cleaning and I have weighed at 470 grams on a digital kitchen scales. I know the full time scale is 90 days but I would hope that weight loss will be fairly minimal in the final 30 days.

    Now it is clearly marginal (pictures to follow) so what I want to know is - Is there anyone in central Scotland who does measuring who can tell me whether it is worth taking any further. It would be my first medal so am a bit new to all this!

    Many thanks

    Hi, Jinga - bearing in mind it is only 2 months since cleaning and currently weighs 470 grams - it is doubtful it will make a medal unless all other aspects are there. Colour, antler length and spread, pearling, coronet size and nothing deducted for broken points or abnormalities. Post a picture and we can determine better if it is worth your while.

    It just might make bronze as its uncut you need to deduct 90grms from the weight, take it to Alistair Troup [bushwearr]

    Drumdruils Bridge of Allan not far from you he will tell you if it worth having official measured or not.

    Using the non CIC Swedish `Qwik Fix Formula` it may make a Bronze.
    I would certainly give it a go as at the estimated 107.4 it is in that category.

    Pictures for a more informed response. Clearly I'm no expert and in terms of vital stats they measure 25cm long, maybe a little more. There is more pearling on the rear than the front and there is a strange anomaly near the base of one that might be visible above the makers name on the pen.

    Many thanks for all the responses. Bushwear is indeed a stone's throw away!

    It may not fare too well as it is very narrow and the pearling is not spectacular also it is not a pretty head.

    I know it is not all that grand but it's all part of the learning process. Just got to find space to park it, till something else appears!
