The Boone and Crockett Club

A trophy big game animal means different things to different people. In the greater context of wildlife conservation, a Boone and Crockett trophy is an indicator that the system that manages game species as a public trust resource, is working.


To reaffirm the success of this system, known as the North American Model of Wildlife Conservation, the Boone and Crockett Club hosts a triennial trophy display and awards banquet. Its purpose is to honor the trophies that are the result of sustainable use conservation, and the fair chase sportsmen who were fortunate enough to have taken some of the highest-ranking trophies over the previous three years.


All wildlife and their habitats, and game species in particular, depend on the participation, funding, and observation-based input provided by sportsmen. The outstanding trophies that are in existence today are proof that the North American Model is working and must continue to keep working if we are to ensure wildlife for the future.



Since 1947, Boone and Crockett Club has regularly hosts it Big Game Awards, uniting the hunting community in celebration of our systems of conservation and management by recognizing outstanding specimens and the fair chase sportsmen and sportswomen that support these programs.
