With the current system some guys can't handle a simple inside spread measurement within 3 inches.

It's too difficult to take a tape,  take some measurements, and put them into the P&Y calculator? WTF am I reading! lol

Group D 20"+   12 points

I’m afraid that will not do anything to avoid lesser buck getting better score. You need more parameters IMO

so a buck with massive dagger tines 10-14" or huge drop tines, gets no credit?  Freakishly long brow tines, like you never seen - nothing?     Beer can bases, carries thick mass all the way to tip - nothing?    

I look at it this way, this is NJ, and it's not IOWA.   Very few bucks "have it all".   There are 4 main aspects to racks  what we as the hunter determine "big buck".   Spread, Tine length, beam length, and MASS.          Many NJ extra wide bucks, lack mass. Many heavy mass bucks, lack spread.     Some bucks can just grow a bunch of points and not much else.   It just doesn' make sense to award a contest for spread and "points" when you are leaving out what many of us feel are better qualities.

I think to make this fair, the north Jersey guys should be allowed to hunt Jacks best spots and south Jersey guys get to hunt 154's best spots.
