My dad is over 65 years old, just curious can he take any size buck legally or must he abide by antler restrictions? I looked at the PGC website but couldn't find the answer.

Not 100% sure BUT believe Juniors and Seniors do not have to follow antler restrictions.

As a senior he can hunt with a rifle in the last 3 days of the early muzzleloading season, FOR does with an antlerless permit. this might have been what you were thinking.

do away with ar.. it makes no sense
Most of the "real" hunters I know think it is a great program......I know I do.

BTW most if not all of the seniors I know think it is a great program because it gives them an opportunity to shoot a decent buck rather than a spike or Y which is about all we saw before AR.
