Deer hunters who are interested in having large antlers measured are invited to bring them to the Southeast District Office today and tomorrow. Donald Pfeiffer official measurer for the Boone and Crocket Club says they are holding this service to all hunters whether they have a recently killed deer or have an old set in the attic. He says there are different classifications depending on the method of kill and the final score.
Pfeiffer says all measured antlers that qualify are entered into the Iowa Trophy Deer Records. He adds the measurement service and entry for the state Trophy Deer Records are free.
Pfeiffer says the hours for scoring will be from 1:00 to 8:00 today and from 4:00 to 8:00 tomorrow at Lake Darling State Park. Appointments will be given from 1:00 to 4:00 today and last approximately 20 minutes in length.
He adds all other measurements will be on a first come-first served basis. For more information, listen to today’s In Touch With Southeast Iowa Program.
