Hunters will have the chance to see how their trophies from the 2011 season stack up among the records with a scoring session hosted by Red Deer Fish and Game Association. The association is hosting the scoring sessions for the first time in three years and are welcoming sportsmen to measure their big game antlers and horns taken last season. The free session will take place at Bower-Kin Community Hall at 58 Boyce St. from 1 to 4 p.m. on Feb. 5. The trophies will be measured using the official scoring charts of the Boone and Crockett Club. More information is available by contacting association president Kevin Wingert at 403-346-4641.
