    I shot a large whitetail this year and was wondering how you grade or rate a deer's antlers. I have seen heads that were rated 185, 205 etc. I think the size of the base and lenght of each tine, but I'm not sure what the formula is. Could anyone give me a hand. Thank you for all your help.

    That's pretty depressing, or I'm doing something wrong.

    I have a pretty nice 10 pointer I shot back in 86 in northern Minnesota.

    If I'm scoring it right it only comes out to about 104. I thought it was bigger than that.
