Thread: Trophy Weights

  1. #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?

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
