Now I have always been told the antlers are the points well a friend got a deer and sent me a picture of it they said it was a 4 pointer but I swear it only has 2 antlers. How did they get 4 points? Or maybe I just can't see 2 of them. I know my deer I got a few days ago was 9 points but it had 9 antlers. This thing looked like a big deer except for the antlers.

I always thought and according to our club rules here, if you can hang a ring on it, its a point. but i say shoot us some pics so we can see it to! it could just be the way the deer is facing int he picture. my last 10 pointer i shot looked like a 6 in the pics cause some horns were hidden from the angle the camera was shootin.

I don't want to post pictures as she is in the pictures and probably wouldn't appreciate that. In the picture she is holding the head up by the antlers and you can only see the two she has her hands on unless there are two more behind those. I'm sure it is a 4 pointer because they wouldn't lie about it I'm just wondering if there was something else that would give it points.

first off. Your deer had 9 points on its antlers.

Antlers are the whole thing. POints are the things that stick up from the antlers and you count each one.
In order for it to be a point (according to official scorers) it has to be an inch in length.

Whatever you guys knew what I was talking about. Yes it had 9 points and no deductions.

As that is the rule by most clubs but if you went and had an official scorer it doesnt fly.
