Bob D'Angelo, coordinator of the Pennsylvania Game Commission's Big Game Records Program, demonstrates and explains how to measure deer antlers under the Boone & Crockett scoring system.


It is often a challenge to find an animal after you have shot it. Here are a few tips for locating an animal once the animal is down and out of view. This is a short video of an elk hunt in the Northern Rocky Mountains. We were hunting in a large burn where the habitat was very thick and nondescript which can make for difficult tracking.

In this case I was in open country, so I saw the elk go down about 30 yards from where he was initially shot. I was confident he was down near the last point that I saw him, so I set my course to where I last saw him standing before he disappeared into the brush. In most cases, I don't usually see where or if the animal has gone down. When hunting in the forest, usually the animal will disappear from view immediately after it is hit. Under these circumstances I will set my course to locate the spot where the animal was standing when I shot, and then start the tracking from that spot. Keep an eye out for an Eatwild tracking video next season.
