Three Classifications: (Clean Symmetrical, Semi Symmetrical, Gross Asymmetrical,)

NasHunts’ new (NAS) Antler Symmetrical Scoring Method: The measurement of antlered game animals. This method credits point symmetry and balance from one side to the other for NasHunt and Sportsmen. The method is to score, measure, record and compile an antler score of nature’s work of art in three classes: Clean Symmetrical, Asymmetrical, and Gross Score.  NasHunts’ scoring method differentiates itself from other antler scoring systems in these 12 significant areas: (1) Antlers measured at any time.  (2) Scores all tines (points).   (3) No side-to-side deductions.  (4) No asymmetrical tine deductions. (5) Total gross score of all measurements.  (6) Scores outside spread of main beams.  (7) Outside spread from beam to beam, not beam to point.  (8) Scores all beam circumferences between symmetrical points.  (9) Provides hunting categories, including single shed hunting.  (10) Three antler classifications. (11) Archery Minimum Scores: Clean symmetrical (110), Semi Symmetrical (130), Gross Asymmetrical  (150), (12) Gun Minimum Scores: Clean symmetrical (150), Semi Symmetrical (170), Gross Asymmetrical (190).

Antlers shall be attached naturally to the skull, not broken or removed. Measurements made with a thin flexible ¼ inch steel tape or thin cable and measured to the nearest 1/8 inch. Total score in 1/8 inch increments. Tines or (points)

Clean Symmetrical – No asymmetrical tines present only symmetrical, No side-to-side length deductions. Symmetrical tines from the left side will match the right side in symmetry, similar direction, similar locations grown from the main beam and tine, and in the normal tine sequence grown between the burr and tip of main beam.  Where a symmetrical tine is to close to judge the score should benefit the antler.

Semi Symmetrical – Antlers with 7 inches or less of asymmetrical tine lengths. No side-to-side length deductions. Scoring includes asymmetrical and symmetrical tines. The symmetrical tines from the left side will match the right side in symmetry, similar direction, similar location from the main beam and tine. Where a symmetrical tine is, too close to judge the score should benefit the antler. Asymmetrical tines are measured and scored.

Gross Asymmetrical – No deductions, total gross score of all 4 measurements includes all measurable tines.

(NAS) Four Measurements - (1) Length of Main Beams:  Measure from the center of the lowest outside burr edge of the beam, running along the outer side of the main beam to the tip. (2) Main Beam Circumferences:  Measure the thinnest circumference measurement between each symmetrical tine, including the brow tine, grown from the top or crown of the main beam. If one or both brow tines are missing, double the thinnest circumference measurement between the burr and the first symmetrical tine. The last circumference measurement between the last symmetrical tine, and tip of beam, will be measured approximately halfway.  (3) Tine Measurements:  Tines shall be at least one inch in length and the length shall exceed the width. Symmetrical and asymmetrical shall be measured from tip of the point following centerline to the nearest edge of the main beam or tine. (4) Length of Outside Beam Spread:  Antler main beams measured perpendicular to the skull at the widest outside beam spread distance, not from a tine and no closer than four inches of the beam tips.
