Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) officers will score deer antlers Jan. 29 in Live Oak.

The scoring is from 9 a.m. to noon. The event will be at Farmers Cooperative, located at 1841 W. Howard St.

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 and a patch.

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.
