Thread: measuring a head

  1. #1

    measuring a head

    can anyone help,, I downloaded a method 20 entry form from SCI , I know it is not for the uk, but its just to give me an idea of the size..
    Are the scores a total of all the measurements, and are the measurements in inches,,
    Just want to see if it is worth getting measured properly,,
    Thanks : mcstalk

    Better in my opinion getting it measured by cic or basc up to you like
    Length of antler,length of brow,length of tray,circumference of coronets and lower and upper beams
    Dry weight of antlers,inside span,no.of points and then beauty points and minus penalty points
    This is cic measurements,not sure at all about the SCI
    Put it to cic,if it's that head you bumped into at the weekendIt looked a cracker,if it doesn't make a medal there will be no charge

    Hi McStalk,
    I have done the same; downloaded the SCI forms and measured my own heads. It does help if you have watched somebody do one as there are ways to "maximise" the score. My experience is that as long as you take care and measure to the nearest eight of an inch you will get a reasonably accurate assessment.
    It is the total of all the individual measurements added together. I did one of my own stags and made him 500 SCI; then had a chance visit from Duncan Fraser from NZ who is an official SCI score and he made the stag 508 SCI. At the very least you will know whether to get it done by an official. Best of luck!

    Mcstalk: If all you want a quick estimate why not download the CIC's Red Book (http://www.cic-wildlife.org/uploads/media/red_book.pdf) and follow their instructions on Page 31? You can then check against the scores on page 11 in the CIC's Blue Book (http://www.cic-wildlife.org/uploads/media/blue_book.pdf).

    If you want an official CIC measurement, can I suggest that you go to www.cictrophy.com; the contact details are all there.

    Best wishes,
