Default Scoring a deer with 3 main beams?

Shot a deer opening morning of gun season. He has 3 mainbeams on his left side and a normal mainbeam on his right with 4 points. Just got him back from the taxidermist and am curious as to how I score him. Iíve searched google and here with no results. Does anyone know how to do it?

One of the beams is the main beam and the other two are scored as nontypical points.

So would the smaller beam in the back be the main beam since the brow tine matches the typical sides brow tine?

Doesn't look like another main beams to me. But looks like some cool extra points. Looks like an awesome deer though!

That's what I would say. Looks like a typical 3 point antler and everything in front would be nontypical.

I would have to have better pics or actually see that deer in person to give you my opinion on how I would score it and I am an official P&Y scorer. Hadly anyway to tell from those pics. In person would be the best way to tell.

This. I would take the longest one and make it the main beam getting mass measurements from it as well. Looks like the far left one would be it with the points coming off of it. Other 2 are considered nontypical points. Nets are for fish. Just add them all up for gross score.

He sure did idk where he got all of that from cause we usually have typical 8 and 10s around us. I wouldnít have shot him but I knew he had something going on up there. There was a deer a few years ago that was crazy horned on one side and Iím wondering if it was him when he was younger.

his left side is simple. score the brow and the beam that has the g2 on it. the big point off front is extra as well as the point off the brow.

Pick the tine that most closely matches the other side in length. You do this to minimize deductions to improve the net score. But, since most folks aren't really concerned with the net score, it doesn't really matter how you score it. The gross score is just total inches, so in that respect, it doesn't really matter how you score it. The exception is that the G's have to originate off the whatever you call the mainbeam, which also can affect the H's. Clear as mud?

Looks similar but way more mass, longer tines/MBs and better spread.

Quick guess 165"

Let me write some numbers down for better thoughts. Give me a min

I found your old thread. 173" is a toad! You could see all the tines better in the LDP pic on the ground. Impressive!!!

Not that an inch matters (I guess it does for some ), but I left out a tine ... he's 174 5/8. I'd like to have him and 2 others officially scored.

My point was, that those 2 extra tines were over 30" of antler. That adds quite a bit to an otherwise above average 8 point.

If you are located close or can get an LSBA or P&Y scorer, get it scored, it does not cost anything! I would absolutely love to score that critter!

You're going to have one main beam. The other two will be abnormal points.
