Program Scoring Criteria

  • deer legally taken during the 1972 season or thereafter are eligible for scoring
  • official scoring of trophies can be done any time following a 60 day drying period
  • harvest information, check in information and license information is required at time of drop off

How It Will Be Scored?

Measurements must be taken by a qualified employee of the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation, or by a measurer certified by Boone & Crockett or Pope & Young. Sportsmen who harvest deer that meet minimum entry requirements are acknowledged by receiving a certificate as well as having their names entered in the state record book.

Below you will find the score sheets for the Cy Curtis typical and non-typical white-tailed deer. These are being provided for information and rough scoring purposes. To be eligible for entry into the Cy Curtis Awards Program, the rack must be scored by an official scorer employed by the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation, or a certified scorer for either Boone and Crockett or Pope and Young organizations.
