FWC officers will score deer antlers Jan. 30 in Lake City and Feb. 12 in Jacksonville...

The Lake City scoring is set from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Milton’s Country Store, located at 12049 N. U.S. 441 in Lake City. For more information, call Milton’s at (386) 755-6975. FWC officers will also score deer antlers on Feb. 12 in Jacksonville.

The scoring will be held from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Gander Mountain, located at 13075 City Square Drive.

All deer being scored must have been taken in Florida by fair chase methods. Antlers scoring 100 points or more qualify for the Florida Buck Registry, and the owner will receive a certificate suitable for framing.

The Florida Buck Registry was established in 1982 to provide hunters with a record of the number and quality of white-tailed deer taken in Florida and to give recognition to Florida hunters.

The minimum antler score necessary to qualify is 100 Boone and Crockett inches for typical antlers and 125 for non-typical antlers.
