||Big Game Scoring Session, Harrisburg |
How Does Your Big Game Trophy Stack Up? Saturday, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., at the agency's headquarters. Bring your deer or elk rack, or bear skull, to be measured under the Boone & Crockett Club's scoring system for possible eligibility in the Boone & Crockett Club, Pope & Young Club or Pennsylvania Big Game Records program. Deer and elk racks cannot be scored until after a 60-day drying period from when the skull plate was removed from the animal, or, in the case of bears, a 60-day drying period is in effect from when the skull was thoroughly cleaned, either by boiling or from the use of beetles. Deer racks to be scored should have at least eight measurable points, and hunters need to register by Feb. 9, 2015. To register, call Patty Monk at 717-787-4250, Ext. 3312. For more information, contact Bob D'Angelo at 717-787-4250, Ext. 3311.
