Field Judging Poll #2Read Now
Once again I think the crowd created a very credible forecast for this buck's score. There were a total of 54 votes cast to create this breakdown:
Length: 15 2/8
Total Length: 21 2/8
Base: 6 6/8
1st Q: 6 5/8
Bottom Mass: 13 3/8
2nd Q: 3 7/8
3rd Q: 2 5/8
Top Mass: 6 4/8
There isn't much for me to improve upon with these numbers as they're once again very close to my guess. If I were to change anything it would probably be the prong length. I'd increase it by maybe 1/8 or so. Very minor detail which wouldn't influence the score much.
There is one thing I'll address: Field Judging Tip: The majority of the time when a buck has big prongs fairly close to it's head, the 1st Q measurement will almost always be the same size or larger than the base measurement.
Once in awhile you'll notice that the base will "mushroom" from the front view, and in cases like that the base might be larger. In the case of the buck in this poll I'd say the base and 1st Q are very similar from the front and that the buck's two measurements will follow the normal pattern of being the same size or the 1st Q being slightly larger.
With that said I think I like the measurement numbers for the base and 1st Q, but I'd like to see them flip flopped.
If anyone has any comments or thoughts on how to make the analysis better please let me know. I'm having fun with these, I hope everyone else is too.
