How are deer points counted?
A deer’s “points” are determined by the number of tines on their antlers, so an eight pointed male deer has eight distinct tines. Antlers are very interesting and quite unique physical structures. In most deer species, they only develop on the male, and they are shed every year after the mating season.

How do you score a deer with Douglas?
The Douglas system is essentially simple: you double the smallest measurement on either horn or antler. You do not add them together.

Whats a G2 on a buck?
Typically with a whitetail deer, the G2 and G3 are the longest tines, but that isn’t always the case. Each tine that comes off the main beam gets measured and added to the total score.
