    So its a White tail if its a Buck and since White tails points are counted as a total if this critter grew up to be what we here would call a 5 point would it then be a 20 point white tail? Be pretty sure that would be in the NON TYPICAL section of Boone and Crocket!

    ????
    No, its a white tail because its tail is white.
    The style of counting tines on the horns isn't due to species, but geographic location.
    What you mention is "western count". Back east, they only count one side.
    "Non-Typical", that's funny. :s0114:

    HUH here in the PNW we would call a deer with 5 tines on one side a 5 point. Back east it would be called a 10 point. but I have only been deer hunting for 49 years come this fall so I could be wrong.

    I've always called this a 4-point....

    Everyone I've ever known has called it a 4-point as well.
    Of course, I've only lived in Washington since 1966. I suppose we could all be suffering from mass hysteria.
