HUNTINGDON, P.A.–-(Ammoland.com)- Pennsylvania Game Commission South-central Regional Director Brad Myers has announced that a big-game measuring session is scheduled to be held in Huntingdon on Feb. 15, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Hunters are invited to bring antlers from their white-tailed deer harvests, as well as the skulls from harvested black bears, to the National Guard Readiness Center on Route 26 in Huntingdon. Officials from the Pennsylvania Game Commission will be on hand to measure entries and officially score them according to the Boone & Crockett Club scoring system for big game.

“Since we’ve had antler restrictions in place for several years now, more mature bucks are being taken,” said Wildlife Conservation Officer Barry Leonard, who serves as the Information & Education Supervisor for the region.”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”

Hunters bringing in trophies should also bring their license and the 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.
