Re: What would happen?
Bad idea. I know of a pie bald that had 6 inch spikes , the next year, it was a 6 point with a 16 inch inside spread.. A buck I passed up was a typical looking forkhorn, the next year I killed the same buck which had grown to be an 8 point rack with a 17 inch inside spread, I knew it was the same buck because both sides of its tail were white, this was before AR of course .. I have been a taxidermist for 30 years and one of the largest bucks I have taken in from Pa. was a six point, many others scored higher but this buck was huge very heavy mass, and shaped like the Jordon buck, of all the bucks I have seen over the years it was my favorite, I wish I still had pictures of it. Oh and by the way this was before antler restriction..
I guess if you only care about how a buck scores and getting your name in some book you worry about things like this. Personally I would take that heavy 6 point over a higher scoring but thin antlered 10 point buck.
