4 Classifications Of Antlers

• PERFECT CATEGORY

A Perfect rack is one in which every typical point on one main beam has a matching typical point on the opposite main beam, and whose rack contains no more than 1 percent irregular inches of antler in its total score.

A Perfect rack is characterized by always having equal and even numbers of typical points. The Perfect classification is the rarest of all antler configurations among mature, trophy-class whitetails.

• TYPICAL CATEGORY

A Typical rack is one whose total inches of irregular points shall not exceed 5.5 percent of its total score. Any rack whose irregular points constitute from 1.1 percent to 5.5 percent of its total score is classified as Typical. In addition, any typical rack with an uneven number of typical tines, even if there are no irregular inches of antler present, will still be classified as a Typical rack. A 9-point typical rack, for example, with five points on one side and four on the other, would automatically be classified as Typical, even if it contains no irregular inches of antler. The Typical category is the most common antler configuration among mature, trophy-class whitetails.

• SEMI-IRREGULAR CATEGORY

A Semi-Irregular rack is one whose total inches of irregular points range from a minimum of 5.6 percent to a maximum of 10 percent of its total score. The Semi-Irregular category is the second most common antler configuration among mature, trophy-class whitetails.

• IRREGULAR CATEGORY

An Irregular rack is one whose total inches of irregular points exceed 10 percent of its total score. The Irregular category is the third most common antler configuration among mature, trophy-class whitetails.
