    Default How many tines do you count?

    Have gotten different counts by several who've looked at it.

    1 brow tine on each side. in between the first 2 points is called a bay thus making it one browtine on each side. Am I right.

    looks like you could argue it to be 5x6

    5x1

    Can you get a F&G opinion on the matter and post it here?

    3x5 Fish and Game videos and stuff specifically say that the tines within the bay (between the brow palm and main palm) dont count. That pair on the left doesnt count. 5 on the right though.

    Looks like 3x5 brow tines. But I can see how it would be open to differing opinions <grin>

    I would call it a 5x6, there is an obviously deeper valley behind each 5th on the left and 6th on the right. Definitely see it walks the line and how some would consider it a 3x5. No way is it a "1" on either side!

    3x5; though I can certainly see LuJon's argument for 5x6 as well. Definitely not a 1 'tiner.

    I think we are all trying to apply typical logic to a non-typical rack, looks more than 50" shoot and enjoy it.

    5x6 ......as Lujon says.....the deeper bay on the left is the determining factor. Niced bull anyway.

    I count it as a 5x6 as well. Perhaps one of you guys that said "1" could elaborate a little. I just don't see it.
    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    Definitely only 3 on the left - due to the deep bay. According to a bunny cop that did a presentation at a hunter safety class 2 years ago, the right side is only 1 brow tine, again due to the deep bay.
    It would certainly be interesting to have a state enforcement officer give a reading on it, F&G employees are just another guy & have no input on any interpertation of laws, other than their opinion(s).
