    Default No, not for Boone & Crockett Club...

    SHED ANTLERS/SPLIT SKULLS
    Shed antlers, as well as any set of antlers with a split skull plate, are not eligible for entry in the Club’s Awards Programs and/or records books, regardless of how well they have been restored to their original condition. This is because the inside spread, which is an integral part of the final score of antlered trophies, cannot be accurately determined if the skull plate is absent or split. If an official measurer suspects that a set of antlers he or she is measuring is either shed antlers or a split skull, he or she should contact the Club’s headquarters for instructions on x-raying that trophy. This policy applies to trophy specimens of deer, caribou, moose and elk, as well as pronghorn.

    In short NO, not officially, but you can put it back togeather.. and have it scored for kicks.. then you will know what it went.. but Once the skull plate has been severed or split, it can't be Officially scored..
