HUNTINGDON, Pa. — A deer antler and bear skull
measuring session will take place in Huntingdon on Feb.
15 from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m., according to Pennsylvania
Game Commission Southcentral Regional Director Brad
Hunters may bring their whitetail 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
“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” said Wildlife Conservation Officer Barry Leonard.
Hunters should bring their license and tag associated
with the animal they want scored.
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, officials said.
