SCI is hosting its Measuring Seminars this year at the 2013 SCI Annual Hunters’ Convention in Reno, NV. There will be three different measuring seminars offered this year during convention. If you’re looking to become an Official SCI Measurer and have never attended a measuring course you will want to attend the Official Measuring Course on Saturday January 26th at 9:00am.
The Master Measuring Seminar will be hosted on Tuesday January 22nd at 9:00 am, which is the day before convention officially starts. The Master Measuring Course is for anyone who has been an Official Measurer for at least one year and wants to achieve the highest level of measuring status. The Master Measuring class requires the completion of scoring 25 various antlers, horns, and skulls within 3% accuracy. Time will be allotted throughout the course of the SCI Convention to allow time to complete the scoring test. The Master Measuring course is $125 and you must be an active SCI member to take either course.
The Complex Measuring Seminar will be held on January 25th at 12:00pm and is open to all SCI measurers. This is a free seminar that is being offered to provide additional training on how to measure large Non-Typical white-tail deer and Complex red stags. So if you’re up for the challenge of measuring some of the toughest animals around or just want to learn some tricks to making it easier, be sure to come to the Complex Measuring Seminar on Friday January 25th at SCI’s Convention.
SCI will be hosting measuring seminars at the GSCO Convention this year in Reno, NV on Jan 9th at 2:00pm. There will be three SCI instructors present to cover all big game animals measured using the SCI scoring system and will place a heavy emphasis on scoring various types of mountain game animals from around the world.
