World-Class Buck Denied

Picture 6 of 7

Under the common-base rule, to be able to count the tines as ‘typical’ they must have a figure 8 or peanut appearance if you removed both at the main beam. If they do, then you must draw the base line not at the beam but at the low point between the points — in this case between the G-2 and G-3. This is done so as not to give double credit because of the larger circumference as well as the extra point length. (photo by Daniel E. Schmidt)

    I say we boycott B&C and anyone affiliated with them until they get some integrity and panel score it.
    but they will probably stack the deck against it anyways.

    B&C scorer Ron Boucher did the right and ethical thing on the King Buck. He should not be “castigated” or otherwise ostracized for reasonably following accepted standards and ethics. While the B&C administration has declined to accept Bouchard’s score and well as his reasons for how and why he justified his actions, this appears only to bring disrepute to the B&C and much credit to Mr. Bouchard. He should be running the B&C so a reasonably fair shake can be expected by all. Is it possible that intransigent bureaucrats are running the B&C, and it’s handling, or should I say apparent bungling, of the King Buck seems to go contrary to its mission statement.
