Buckmasters to Score Whitetail Deer Racks at Outdoor and Sports Show
Buckmasters Trophy Records Regional Director, Edson Waite has announced that he will be at the Central PA Outdoor and Sports Show to measure whitetail deer racks for inclusion into the Buckmasters Trophy Records System.
Measuring will be free of charge and all are encouraged to bring their whitetail mounts and racks in for scoring. Whitetails harvested in any year are welcome at this event. If racks are found to be large enough to qualify for entry into the Buckmasters Trophy Record Full Credit Scoring System, they will be entered at the event free of charge.
There is no required drying time with the Buckmasters system, so even if a deer was taken yesterday, it can be scored.
Waite has been scoring whitetail deer antlers for 18 years. He has measured more than 2,800 sets of antlers with more than 850 qualifying for record book entry.
The Buckmasters Trophy Record System uses a non-punitive method to measure deer antlers and gives credit to the entire amount of antler grown by the deer and does not force the rack to conform to perfect symmetry as do other systems (No deductions).
Buckmasters has recently released the sixth edition of their record book, which contains listings of nearly 13,000 whitetail deer, including some of the largest deer ever harvested or found. Many of these deer hail from areas near the location of this measuring event.
All are invited to join in the event even if they do not have antlers to score, they can share in the scoring and the camaraderie of other whitetail deer hunters.
