— FROSTBURG — The FSU Branch of the Quality Deer Management Association wants to acquire deer heads and gut piles from deer taken in Maryland to be used in research projects, according to Tom Lambert, assistant biology professor at Frostburg State University.

To arrange for pickup or drop-off, call any of these numbers: Chris Cochran, 443-350-6279; Katie Zembower, 301-697-8056; Jeff Dean, 443-786-3622; Lindsey Russell, 240-727-3303; Thomas Lambert, 301-687-4167.
