Sounds to me the hunter is getting the shaft.

Pretty much sums up why none of my animals have ever been officially scored or entered in any books.

I think the hunter got screwed also. Sounds like the guy Reneau didn't like having his power challenged and took it out on the hunter and the animal. Not right at all.

Sounds like the guy is getting hosed, give him his due panel score!!! He probably won't get a fair ruling but stuff like this is ridiculous.

Shared bases always seem to be the problem that B&C finds with any rack that may challenge the typical world record. This buck does not appear to me personally to have shared bases, they are close together, but they to not appear to rise off the main beam with shared bases so I do not personally understand the logic behind disqualifying the G3's as typical points. When I think of shared bases I think of the Curt Van Lithe buck which clearly has a shared base on the right G2/G3.

Does anyone know how they determine a shared base?

Ive seen that deer in person. It could go either way with the common base.

Shared bases should be pretty easy to recognize. I have a buck that has 6 tines on one side and no common base, but because one of the tines is not at the same spacing exactly it was considered nontypical.
The way Boone & Crockett / Pope & young score, they tend to shoot for the lowest score possible. They tend to frown on score keepers who get higher scores.

Monster deer none the less I remember hearing about it when it was shot.

just another reason I'm not a big fan of any scoring system. A monster buck hits the ground and the scoring system makes it a messy situation. Be proud of your monster buck and forget the score!

The hunter is definately getting shafted here; seems like the B&C guy knows he is wrong and won't let this deer anywhere near a panel. The common base point reminds of what they did to the Wayne Zaft buck.

3rd that.

I thought the exact same thing about the Zaft buck when I read this.

From the pictures I saw it looked like a common base to me... just my opinion, I would have liked to see the WR return to WI though :lol:
