Publishing technology has changed since Boone and Crockett Club released its first book in 1893, but the legendary conservation organization is keeping up with the times through its newly launched eBook store.
Four titles are available now. Many more, including some B&C classics, will be added soon.

B&C eBooks are also available from Amazon, Barnes and Noble and Apple's iBookstore.
"Hunters and conservationists today absorb information in different ways, and we're working hard to accommodate them,” said Julie Houk, director of publications for Boone and Crockett Club. "eBooks are another way that our Club can help maintain the highest standards in fair-chase sportsmanship, habitat stewardship and wildlife management."
B&C titles available now as eBooks include Legendary Hunts and Legendary Hunts II, which are collections of amazing short stories. Also available now is the utilitarian A Boone and Crockett Club Field Guide to Measuring and Judging Big Game and the biography Theodore Roosevelt Hunter-Conservationist. Prices range from $9.99 to $19.99.
Soon to be added eBooks include the B&C classics American Big-Game Hunting and Hunting in Many Lands, as well as the new Records of North American Big Game, 13th Edition. Also coming soon is Craig Boddington’s Fair Chase in North America.
Each title also is available as a printed publication from bookstores or directly from the Club. Order at www.boone-crockett.org or by calling 888-840-4868.
