Exclusive Video: Scoring the Biggest Muley Shed Ever

By Dave Hurteau

Earlier this week we posted the F&S exclusive story of the “Highest Scoring Muley Shed of All Time,” a massive matched set recently dropped by a now-famous Colorado Springs buck dubbed “Goliath” or “Double Beam.” A glance at the North American Shed Hunters Club record-setting rack leaves you wondering, “How do you score those things?”

The answer is, watch this video. F&S had a camera rolling as NASHC certified measurer Ron Newman put a tape on these incredible antlers.

I just got off the phone NASHC Big-Game Records Director Dave Boland who says the standard used by his club is simply the B&C system minus the spread—plus an occasionally required provision called the Fair Measurement Rule that accounts for bone chewed away by rodents.

In the video, you hear Newman remark, “It’s so hard to tell the typical on this stuff…” which echoes a conversation I just had with Boone and Crockett Assistant Director of Big Game Records, Justin E. Spring. “For a nontypical rack, you score the typical frame and then you add the abnormal point. So the fist step and biggest hurdle with a big nontyp like this is deciding what is what—which can lead to heated discussions between scorers. On a really funky rack, it’s not usual to sit for several hours just figuring out the typical frame.” Check it out, as Newman explains how he does it using two different colors of tape.

Massively Impressive!
Noah's relentless pursuit paid off, not to mention, that Elvis, (Double-Beamed) is still alive and well for another season of growth.
An excellent video with the great still shots are an added plus for hunters to view.
Thanks for the insight into another mans dream and pursuit!
Unbelievable ...

I think its great that a bunch of honest people followed this buck and shared their research and the end result is something we can all enjoy thanks to a dedicated humble hunter. I think the last word in the video puts it best "unbelievable"

See how much more exciting it is to find them in the wild than in an encloser. Whats that cost? Time and ambition!

Walt, not sure what your referring to as an enclosure- this awesome buck was not behind any sort of fence(just an urban deer in Colorado Springs)-sounds possibly like a little jealousy to me! Jim
