FWC scores antlers in Live Oak

Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission’s (FWC) officers will score deer antlers Oct. 4 in Live Oak.

The annual scoring will begin at 10 a.m. and will continue until all scoring is completed. The event will be at R & R Tractor Parts and Hunting Supplies, located at 944 N. Ohio Ave.

Hunters who have taken a buck can have the antlers scored to compare with other Florida deer taken in previous seasons. The deer 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.

For more information, call R & R Tractor Parts and Hunting Supplies at (386) 362-2651.
