After the kill, all Bucks will be B&C scored by Buzzard Creek Ranch staff at the Ranch. The Typical Gross Boone and Crockett score will be used for Final Price and Additional Fees or Cull Discounts. The Hunter is expected to watch the B&C scoring.
The number of antler points is not used in the pricing but generally a Buck with more antler points will have a higher Gross Boone & Crockett score. Also lots of long thick antler tines will raise the Gross B&C score.

$70 Trophy Buck Fee per each B&C point score over 120.
