B&C and P&Y could keep the current system and simply add a category that sorts by gross score. 
In addition to the current methods of tracking, I would think they could add separate categories for longbow, recurve, compound, crossbow, rifle, handgun, shotgun, and muzzleloader.

You may be right Patriot......But don't you think there would be way too many categories.
I haven't thought about this much....i'm just responding spontaneously.
There's too many types of hunts.
Like you said....Handguns, recurves, longbows, crossbows, compounds, muzzle, shotgun, riffle,
I always thought it should be.....
Put 2 categories....1) any type of guns
                          2) any type of bows
Some people don't like crossbows....some people don't like riffle...handgun or baiting...or whatever.
There will always be someone who wants to dispute on something.
Me....I'm cool with everything.....if your deer has more antlers then mine.....I don't care how you shot it....and with a Hunter...I will be happy for you. Your deer should score more than mine.
I'm not disputing any points above...It's not a subject i'm familiar with....that's all.

On Christmas Day....I went to my dad's neighbour.  He shot a nice buck last year. (13 points)
I measured him at 148 inches.  I ain't no pro at measuring....but its a rough estimate.
That was gross.  Net would be 132.  Lots of deductions.
My 8 pointer ...score 134 Gross.....Net 132.
His 13 pointer is alot bigger then my 8 pointer.
He should get the highiest score.  But....rules are rules
Sorry to bring an old subject back.
