  • DDC Scores???

    Huntman and I got to the DDC around 8:30 this morning and got home about 6:30 - had a good time walking around. Saw several folks from NCS forum and a lot of nice bucks.
    We took Huntman's biggest 8pt from this season which I had guestimated to be about 120 inches and when we came back a few hours later we saw that it had scored 125 6/8. We kept lookin' @ other deer there and I thought something was off based on other deer's scores. So a few hours later we went back over to the youth section and I asked one of the scorers what Huntman's buck grossed. He said he couldn't tell cuz they had not wrote it down so I asked him if they could check it out cuz we'd like to know. About 15 minutes later he came back out and said that there had been some mistakes made this morning and the buck's gross was 125 6/8 but actually netted 119 1/8. We really couldn't care less but that's a pretty good discrepency. They had already printed the score sheet w/ the 125+ but they did reprint it with the correct net score. Just makes me wonder how many were wrong. lol

    No Doubt
    WHOA!! Glad I'm Not alone and Anthony that Crazy Guy that yelled for you in the parking lot was yours Truly lol and yes your mount looked AWESOME!!! But on the scores...I agree...some I could see but some were like WHAT??????? They was a Great Buck there (Can't remember the name) but it was lacking Mass but only 100 inches??? Give me a break!!! That's why I have never had any of mine scored...I might go across the counter on someone lol...But seriously...I think they use 1 of those RACKALATOR gizmo's and the Batteries were weak lol...Anyway...Regardless of Score...NC Produced some Great Bucks This year!!!!! How about that 32 inch wide Buck from Virginia? CRAZY!!!!

    Rackulators.lol
    Wouldn't doubt that checked mine in @ 2 today and by the time we walked around looking at heads on the board and got around to the muzzleloader catagory they were hanging mine up scoring 142 4/8.smh I am figuring at most took us 5 min. maximum to walk around corner so maybe they were using a rackulator.lol I had a friend score it who is very tidius and came up with 152 2/8 and had about 2' ded. and it was 8 pointer 23' wide with alot of mass and palmation buck was aged at 5 1/2.When I picked it up the guy said it grossed 148 5/8 just needed some more points, I just thanked him and headed back home being very proud of taking a buck that I had hunted for 3 years on the family farm and finally closing the deal this past November.

    Guess I could've said this in the beginning but they said there was some mistake the computer was making. The score sheet that they print out should have the gross score in the bottom right corner (small font - gotta look hard). If it said 0 0/8 then it was one of the errors and what actually printed was the gross. Just an FYI.

    Score Sheet
    The score sheets have always been this way Justin...Don called me because he had already left the Classic and left his Score Display sheet and asked me to pick it up for him and that's 1 of the First things I looked at..His Buck Grossed 143 1/8 and his net was 136 1/8...A Great Buck with a Bow!!!

    score sheet
    GT, I know they've always been like that. What I was saying is that if they had 0 0/8 in the bottom right corner then they were part of that mornings errors.

    As I have said before... Don't hang your head because your Score wasn't what you expected...Be proud of your accomplishment regardless of Score and don't let the deductions take away from what he really grew...I mean deductions in side to side differences has always been stupid in my opinion..If he Grew 140 inches then he should be counted with 140 inches!!! Seldom have I seen a Perfect Rack in NC...Seems like they all will have a stronger side than the other or some 'Trash' that hurts this Score stuff...And how could we call it trash??? That term is also Stupid in my opinion...It's all Antler regardless of what shape, Size ETC it is..It's NOT trash!!...At least the Deer I have killed have had a strong side and the other side was lacking tine length or had some crazy point growing...It takes a perfectly symmetrical Rack to get a Perfect Score without deductions so if your in doubt download the score sheet and take your time and do it yourself...I know they speed score these deer at these shows and if they didn't..You would have to come back on a later day to get your head back with all the heads people bring in...Once again..Score doesn't mean squat to me and my deer...I didn't Grow him myself like some people claim they do..He was fair game to anyone but I do Thank the Lord that I was blessed with each and every deer I have killed. I'm just a hunter and never looked at myself as being in a contest as to how big a Deer I could Kill...I just hunt!!! and enjoy it while I'm here!! I'm not going to be around forever!!!
