RE: NY Deer Program
I did not get you an autograph. There were people everywhere. I suspect you are highly disappointed.
Anyway .. I spoke with Jim Walter, a pope and young official scorer for the I-79 corridor area. He scores, on average 160 bucks a year. He sets up times and places (sportmans clubs) for hunters to bring in their rack for an official score. Up until 2003, he averaged 2-3 that would break the 125 mark. Last year, over 40 broke the 125 mark.
I'd be willing to bet the north central scorers have scored the least pope and young bucks.
My reports and advice are for everyone to enjoy, not just the paying customers.
