Eye Guards on deer

Do you count them as points? What about points that come off of eye guards? The DWR counts them on their tally sheets... just curious how to count a buck with multiple points coming off of his eyeguards.

My '05 Bookcliffs buck has 2 horizontal points coming off the left eyeguard, there is a big 3" horizontal point coming off the right antler below the eyeguard going back behind his ear. Was always curious how to figure him. Counting everything over 1", he goes 8x8.

I'd call it an eight point no problem, as long as you don't pull that east coast 16 point crap i think its fine.

We live out west. Eye guards don't count on deer, but they are beautiful and add the ultimate character to a set of antlers.
