JOIN THE BOONE AND CROCKETT CLUB
What does it mean to be an Associate of the Boone and Crockett Club?
Being an Associate of the Boone and Crockett Club means that you stand for fair chase hunting in support of common sense natural resource conservation.
- It means that you belong to an action group deserving of the title, hunter-conservationist.
- It means that you believe, as Theodore Roosevelt did, that the only way to keep wildlife with us was to make conservation an individual’s responsibility of citizenship.
- It means that you believe that critical wildlife management decisions must be based on real science, not advocacy disguised as science or emotional opinion.
- It means that you understand the need to lead by example, that hunting is an honorable tradition in service to wildlife and the environment, so those who do not hunt will not take a position against hunting.
- It means you have a voice that will be heard.

You don't have to have a trophy in the record book to belong to the Boone and Crockett Club, just a passion for big game and the desire to keep hunting them.
The Power of One – What’s your conservation identity?
By becoming a Boone and Crockett Club Associate your voice will be added to many others like you empowering our Conservation Policy team in Washington, DC to add strength-in-numbers to its arsenal in making sure hunters and hunting, and therefore wildlife and their habitats, get the attention they deserve. You will be counted as part of a larger group whose “conservation identity” extends beyond that of just buying a hunting license.
The North American Model of Wildlife Conservation is the most successful of its kind in human history. It works because the people own the wildlife and have access to them. It exists because of the Boone and Crockett Club and its members.
One of the seven principles of this Model is – Democratic Rule of Law. This means that laws developed by the people and enforced by government agencies will regulate the proper use of wildlife resources, i.e. Conservation Policy.
Since 1887, the Club has been engaged in putting forth the laws and policies that support conservation, as well as ensuring that there is public wildlife and public hunting.
