Thread: Roe Buck heads a question

    Roe Buck heads a question

    With the new season upon us I have a question. Does anyone have a set of photos that shows the difference between a non medal head and a bronze, silver and gold head. I am curious to see the different heads hopefully to the same scale so I can see the variation in quality. Regards sbm

    There are many factors which influence the CIC score of various heads.
    Length, 25cm/10 inches is a help. Porosity of antler causes weight differences. Colour, internal span, pearling etc all contribute to the final score.
    Some people lose a medal by cutting the scull and removing too much. [Nothing can be added for that simple mistake but there is a statutory allowance for an uncut scull.]
    I shot a symmetrical 8 pointer in 1963 which would have been a Bronze medal if I had not been` so savage with the saw` , the words of my old friend, that master measurer, the late Kenneth G Whitehead.

    I think what he means is ,is there some form of identification pictures he can use as a reference point to check the size of medal heads, in other words to compare with, i think thats what he means if that makes any sense? ive wondered this myself,

    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    Thats a good link but I was really after a set of photos that show 'one of each' that I could view side by side as a sample comparison. I know one bronze will be different from another but it would give me an idea. I probably will neversee an example of them all in the flesh but it would be nice to be educated in case I do. regards sbm
