    The Pope and Young Club Approves Gross Score as Supplemental Data

  The Pope and Young Club Approves Gross Score as Supplemental Data

Earlier this year, a group of Pope and Young members filed a petition to add gross score to the Club's Records Program as

supplemental data. The petition had the required 10-percent membership support, which forced an official vote on the rule.

The ballot was sent out late last month asking if the voting membership was in favor of adopting a similar policy to Boone and Crockett in regard to how the Pope and Young Club should record “gross score.” A majority of senior and regular members voted in favor of the issue.

"This new policy is not to be confused with the Club's 'final net' score," said Joe Bell, the Club's Executive Director. "This remains unchanged and will not affect the official ranking of each animal. Ranking is given to the animal's final net score, not gross score. Gross score will be added only as supplemental data on the Club's Official Score Sheet just as Boone and Crocket has done to their program."

The Pope and Young Club Gross Score policy, for antlered animals, will include the typical frame, without deductions for lack of symmetry, plus the total of the lengths of all the abnormal points, plus the total inside spread. The Pope and Young Gross Score for horned and antlered animals is the total of the left and right sides without deductions for lack of symmetry.

As a result of this change, gross score will now be the second number listed when publishing trophy information. However, the animal's gross score is not an official score and should not be used in this regard, particularly among the World's Record species.

The gross-score feature will take some time to implement, in order to incorporate the mathematical equations to properly configure the Records Program databases to reflect this new data. The Club will provide official updates in the near future.

If you have any questions regarding the change, please contact the Club's headquarters office or email Joe

Bell, the Club's Executive Director, at joe@pope-young.org.
