Is Boone and crockett for bucks scoring over 170 inches and pope and young are for bucks scoring less. Although I am basing this on no experience because I have not shot any deer eve close.
B&C is for deer shot with guns and P&Y is for archery. the scores vary by state and usually pope and young has a smaller entry level
The scoring systems themselves are no different. The same measurements are taken and those measurements are added in the same way. As stated above, B&C is for deer killed with a gun and the minimum entry score is 170. For Pope and Young the minimum entry score is 125 and is for deer killed with a bow.
Yeah, MNhunter23 and vork23 are correct. You can have a buck score both B&C and P&Y if you shoot it with a bow and if it qualifies for B&C minimum.
Ditto the above.
If you want to see some samples click my username and look in the photo file. There is a 130 2/8 Pope and Young buck I shot last Oct 29 and a 242 inch B&C NT buck shot with a bow in Iowa by Steve Binkley the same day.
I've never had my bucks scored, I'm not really into that, but now I'm tempted. The P&Y books might just get a little thicker.
Very generally, archery vs. firearm.
Agreed with MNhunter23 answer above and A + 1 for you sir!!!
