How did B&C get started?

The Boone and Crockett Club was founded by Theodore Roosevelt, along with other visionaries in 1887 over the concerns that we might someday lose our hunting privileges and the wildlife populations for future generations. The Boone and Crockett Club is more than just big game records -- the Club and its members have been responsible for a long list of activities that either created or preserved the hunting opportunities we enjoy today. Here are just a few of these accomplishments:

  • The Club's Fair Chase statement was the cornerstone of the establishment of hunting seasons, bag limits, and the abolishment of market hunting practices.
  • Club members helped to create the Lacey Act prohibiting the interstate shipment of illegally taken game.
  • Club members helped to establish the federal duck stamp program.
  • The National Forest Service, the National Park Service, and National Wildlife Refuge systems exist today in large part because of the extensive efforts of the Club and its members.
  • Club members helped establish the Pittman-Robertson Act, which dedicated the monies from an excise tax on the sale of firearms and ammunition to go toward wildlife and habitat conservation.
  • The Club has also been responsible for the support and continued success of numerous conservation, pro-hunter, and pro-big game programs across North America.


What is the North American Model of Wildlife Conservation?

Natural resources, including wildlife represent the health and wealth of a country and its people. The North American Model of Wildlife Conservation is a unique system of sustainable use that accounts for the abundance and variety of wildlife, and the diversity of landscapes and cultures across North America. The Model is based upon the premise that sustainable use of the wildlife and natural resources, always with an eye toward the long-term health of the environment, will maximize the benefit for all.

The Model is anchored by seven principles, each of which the Boone and Crockett Club and its members helped to either establish, popularize, mobilize support for, and/or defend.
