That would be classified as a non typical rack. A typical rack doesn't get much bigger than 6 by 6 for whitetail and doesn't have any kicker points (which this deer has many).

I thought it would have to be a 8 by 8 or bigger before they classify it as a non-typical. Look at the Hanson buck, its an 8 by 8 and it is the record typical. Or the ont that was shot up my Minot a couple years ago that was like a 7 by 7 it was damn close to Hanson buck.

As long as it is fairly symmetrical, it can be scored as a typical deer. The only problem is if there are a lot of differences between the points on the left vs. the right side, the deductions will kill you. Usually that is why they will score it nontypical, so if the deer has lots of points, length, and mass but isn't symmetrical, you can take that into consideration.
