"This partnership provides millions of hunters with easy access to a certified Measurer. It's a new convenience spawned by demand—we're seeing all-time high interest in our records program, which speaks to the success of modern conservation," said Keith Balfourd of the Boone and Crockett Club.
Hunters can “green score” their own trophies by following guidelines at the Boone and Crockett Club Web site, www.booneandcrockettclub.com. If unofficial measurements are close to or above minimum scores, and the hunter would like to enter their trophy into the Boone and Crockett Club Awards Program ($40 entry fee), it must be scored by a trained Measurer like those at Bass Pro Shops.

The Boone and Crockett Club accepts trophies taken in fair chase by all legal methods (i.e. firearm, archery, muzzleloader, etc.) including found, or “pick up,” trophies that meet or exceed minimum entry scores per species.
Maintaining records of native North American big game is a valuable tool for measuring the success of wildlife management programs. For over 120 years, Boone and Crockett Club has been a leader in records keeping, conservation, fair-chase hunting ethics and education.
