States and Canada, and the East and West boundaries are delimited by the Atlantic and
Fair Chase Statement- FAIR CHASE, as defined by the Boone and Crockett Club, is the
ethical, sportsmanlike and lawful pursuit and taking of any free-ranging wild, native
North American big game animal in a manner that does not give the hunter an improper
advantage over such animals.

|Typical: An antler rack that consists of a 5 x 5 frame for deer, including
eye guards, and 6 x 6 frame for elk. Any points greater than the typical frame
may still be considered a typical, but will be counted as deductions from the overall
score. Typical frames, in general, will score less than non-typical. The B&C
world record typical mule deer scores 226 4/8
|Non-Typical: An antler rack that consists greater than the normal typical 5 x 5
or 6 x 6 frame. Non-typical frames have many points- more the points, the greater
the score. Non-typicals will generally score higher than typical frames because they
have more points that are allowed to be scored. The B&C world record non-typical
mule deer scores 355 2/8.
