Trophy Scan

Trophy Scans is the official scoring system for all Los Cazadores contests.

The Trophy Scan scoring method utilizes a patented technology called VoluMetrics, which was designed by an international team of hunter-programmers to map millions of data points captured by a unique 3D scan of any trophy game animal. Once the data is captured, VoluMetrics’ algorithms compute virtually any measurement with stunning speed and accuracy. VoluMetrics instantly counts, labels and measures all tine lengths, as well as inside, outside and tip-to-tip spreads before recording myriad mass measurements and other calculations.

Because antlers, horns, and animal skulls are three-dimensional objects, measuring them in two-dimensional linear units (inches, feet, yards, etc.) is inherently limited. Three-dimensional cubic measurements, however, account for every bit of bone, horn, or antler the animal grows without penalizing it for non-uniformity or small tine length. But while the volume of uniform objects is simple to calculate, complex organic shapes such as deer antlers are not.
