With deer season in full swing, here's something to ponder: will Vermont's antler-restriction law (the ban on shooting spikehorns), which was designed to promote larger bucks with bigger antlers, someday lead to smaller bucks with smaller antlers?

The Newark Advocate    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The Ohio Department of Natural Resources Division of Wildlife has given hunters two other options on checking their deer for the first time: the Internet and by phone. There aren't as many game check stations, and not as many hunters are bringing their deer in to be checked. The new system replaces the old way of using metal tags on a buck's antlers or a doe's ankle. Game-check transactions are available online and by telephone seven days per week and during holidays.
