|Scoring Sessions Announced for the Records of Alabama’s White-tailed Deer Program (RAWD)|
The Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries Division of the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources will be holding scoring sessions this spring and summer for its Records of Alabama’s White-tailed Deer (RAWD) deer records and recognition program.
The RAWD program was established to recognize exceptional bucks grown and taken in Alabama. The program is open to antlers from all free-ranging bucks legally harvested or found dead in Alabama, regardless of the year the deer was harvested or found. The antler scoring system used for the RAWD program is identical to that used by the Boone & Crockett Club. The minimum scores for the program are 140 Typical (net) and 165 Non-Typical (net). All entrants meeting the minimum requirements of the program will receive an official RAWD Certificate.
If a deer has been officially scored for Boone & Crockett, Pope & Young, or Longhunter’s purposes, sportsmen can bring the official score sheet with their mount to a RAWD scoring session. Participants should preregister prior to attending the scoring session by calling the appropriate telephone number listed below. Sessions are scheduled for the following dates and locations:
