I was just watching "the Bucks of Tecomate", and they just did their hotseat segment. the issue was about if the boone and crocket system is good or bad for hunting. both the dudes support it, as long as it isn't taken too far.
what I liked the most was that Jeff Foxworthy said at the end that he likes the gross score, not the net score, because he likes to give the deer credit for what it has been given. i totally agree. I think it's kind of a shame to measure up a rack, and then subtract inches for not being perfectly symmetrical. i guess if the whole idea to being classified as a "typical" rack means it has to be symmetrical, then I guess at least I can see why it was made that way. but personally, I still think it's a shame to subtract inches. If the deer grew it, it counts to me. I don't even figure net measurements, I just use gross. I have never shot a super huge deer, most barely break 100 inches, I'm not a big "antler hunter", I hunt deer. But when I do measure those antlers, because it is fun to do, I let him keep the inches.
