The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) is scoring deer antlers Jan. 24 in Archer.

People can bring their bucks to the Midwest Feed and Farm, 13046 SW State Road 45 in Archer. Scoring begins at noon.

There will be refreshments, as well as biologists and law enforcement officers to answer wildlife and hunting questions.

The deer being scored must have been taken in Florida by fair-chase methods. Qualifying antlers will be recorded in the Florida Buck Registry. Owners will receive a certificate suitable for framing and a patch.

The FWC established the Florida Buck Registry 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 qualifying antler score is 100 Boone and Crockett inches for typical antlers and 125 for nontypical antlers.

For more information, call Midwest Feed and Farm at 352-495-9090. To learn more about the Florida Buck Registry, go to MyFWC.com/Deer.
