green-score
 v. phr.— «Last Saturday, I killed a 10-point here at my club in Pearl River County, and for around here it’s a real trophy.…I had it green-scored and it was about 130 inches and the taxidermist told me to enter it in something called Magnolia Records. Funny thing, but before I killed that big buck at Twin Oaks, I didn’t know anything about scoring deer. We don’t score deer down here, because nobody ever kills one worth measuring.» —“Outdoors: News helps Kennedy deliver a trophy” by Bobby Cleveland Clarion-Ledger (Ridgeland, Mississippi) Dec. 23, 2007.
