Milam now two-buck county, TP&W says

Milam County will be a twobuck county when the general deer season opens on Saturday, Nov. 7, according to the Texas Parks & Wildlife Department.

Game Warden Charles Mayer met with hunters in Rockdale and Cameron Saturday to outline the new antler restrictions.

"You can now take two bucks but only one can have a spread of 13 inches or more," Mayer said.

"The second buck can be a spike or have one unbranched horn or slick on one side," he said.

Hunters can kill two bucks with less than 13-inch horn spreads but not two bucks with spreads more than 13 inches, he said.

General deer season ends Jan. 3, 2010.

Milam is one of 113 Texas counties which have the special antler restrictions this year, according to TP&W.

Caldwell tacked on scores in the second and third quarter to construct a 35-0 lead before Rockdale could get on the scoreboard.

Excell Nelson broke loose for a 67-yard touchdown run in the third quarter to erase the shutout and make it 35-6.

Quarterback Miguel Alonzo closed the gap to 35-14 with a 48- yard scoring run and two-point conversion to start the fourth quarter.

Coaches said Alonzo and Nelson were the standout players for the game.

Because of the weather conditions, the junior high games were cancelled.
