Deer Antler And Bear Skull Measuring Session Scheduled
Huntingdon – Pennsylvania Game Commission Southcentral Regional Director Brad Myers announced that a measuring session will be held in Huntingdon, on February 15th, from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. Hunters are invited to bring their white- tailed deer antlers and black bear skulls to the National Guard Readiness Center on Route 26 in Huntingdon. Officials from the Pennsylvania Game Commission will be on hand to do the official scoring per Boone and Crockett rules.
“Since we’ve had antler restrictions in place for several years now, more mature bucks are being taken. The additional age has resulted in larger antlers so there should be some impressive racks brought in to be measured. This means some good bucks could go into the record books,” according to WCO Barry Leonard, who serves as the information and education supervisor for the region.
Hunters bringing in trophies they have taken should bring their license and tag associated with that animal. Persons bringing in skulls or antlers from other sources are asked to bring any documentation showing where and who harvested the animal. Mounts and cleaned antlers and skulls that have dried for 60 days are eligible to be scored.
The session is free and open to the public. Many people enjoy coming to view the trophies and hear the hunters’ stories.
