How to Score and Register Your Trophy Animal with Boone and Crockett


 
Camping,Recreation & Leisure,Sports
If you’re a trophy hunter, you might want to score and register your kill with the Boone and Crockett Club. To be eligible for possible awards and inclusion in the club’s database, you must follow the principles of ethical hunting and have the carcass properly scored and measured before submitting the information to the club. Founded by the Roosevelt, the club is a major conservationist organization that maintains a large database of trophy animals.

Returning from a successful hunting trip? The Boone and Crockett will help you score and register your trophy animal for posterity. When you kill a deer, bear, or elk, you can record the dimensions in record books maintained by this organization that retains a large data base of the scoring, tracking and measurements of big game animals in North America.

Preserving Trophy Animals

Hunters who engage in trophy hunting often seek out the largest and most elusive game species and have them mounted as a reminder of their success and personal courage. To mount the heads, as well as turn the hides into mountable skins or rugs, you need to hire a taxidermist, who will prepare the head, shoulders, antler racks or even the whole animal. He or she will add glass eyes and make cosmetic repairs to cover bullet holes and other defects. If you are planning on submitting your kill to Boone and Crockett, your taxidermist will work with you to ensure that the integrity of your trophy is not compromised by enhancements or embellishments such as velvet.

Boone and Crocket Scoring

Hunters that kill larger animals meet different criteria, plus they may be eligible for trophies and entry into the club database. Because Boone and Crockett is committed to fair hunting practices, the club publishes specific information about game it considers to be eligible for mention in the record books.

To have a trophy animal considered for entry into the Boone and Crockett database, you must first "green" score the animal by measuring certain dimensions on a ¼" wide flexible steel tape. If as a hunter, you believe that your kill might be large enough to qualify for the club’s Big Game Award, you should then contact an official measurer, volunteers certified by the club to come out and take official measurements. These official measurers are not allowed to accept fees, but can accept travel expenses or meals. The measuring process takes place only after the heads of the large game are cleaned of flesh and after the skins, horns, antlers or tusks have dried for 60 days after the animal has been killed or frozen prior to cleaning.

Other Information Boone and Crockett Needs for Its Record Books

An official measuring agent must submit the measurements to the club and the hunter must also provide specific information about the kill:

The hunter must list the county and state in the lower 48 states

The hunter should submit the name of the nearest geographic feature for kills in Canada or Alaska. If the kill took place on a prairie or elsewhere with no significant geographical features, the name of the nearest town may be submitted.

If the hunter cannot provide the location of the kill, the hunter is ineligible for certain trophies.

For certain species of big game, the hunter may need to specify the exact location of the kill on a map.

Trophies that are found or picked up are listed as such in the record book

The club may require the hunter to ship his trophy to B&C headquarters for verification measurement and final scoring.

Plan a guided hunt today for a chance to bag a trophy that may be a Boone and Crockett record breaker.

I am not in disagreement with your observations. However, there are hunters that seek "trophy" animals or have goals to score in Boone & Crockett. You may want to address your question to them.

Is there any thought on getting rid of the net scores and only using the gross score. .. the net score no longer serves a purpose as we are no longer searching for an ideal species specimen. I don't support the Boone and Crockett club for that specific reason... I have no interest in a system that critiques or takes away from what it had no direct involvement in the development of... ie antler growth... we don't will or design antlers to grow a specific way... where do we become authorities in attempting to establish an antler ideal... either it grew the antler or it didn't or it broke it. ... the natural deductions or non growth is deduction enough. .. let's be done with net scores so we can ha e a true appreciation of what an appreciation ima has grown... not what we in our arrogant foolishness would assume to idealize.
