I'm trying to get the horn length measurement on a dall sheep. According to Boone and Crocket: The length of horn is measured from the lowest point in front on the outer curve to a point in line with the tip. DO NOT press tape into depressions. The low point of the outer curve of the horn is considered to be the low point of the frontal portion of the horn, situated above and slightly medial to the eye socket (not the outside edge). Use a straight edge, perpendicular to the horn axis, to end the measurement on broomed horns.
What the heck does all that mean? I'm not sure what the lowest point of the outer curve would be? According to the photo it isn't the outside of the horn base and it's not down the middle of the horn....it looks like somewhere in-between where there is supposedly a low point. Does anyone have a better explanation and possibly a photo or 2 that how this?
