Hunters can have their trophies scored by Boone and Crockett Club Official Measurers during special August events at Cabela's retail stores around the country.
Official scoring will be offered Aug. 23-24 at all 28 Cabela’s locations:
- Connecticut—East Hartford
- Idaho—Boise, Post Falls
- Illinois—Hoffman Estates
- Kansas—Kansas City
- Minnesota— East Grand Forks, Owatonna, Rogers
- Nebraska—Kearney, La Vista, Sidney
- South Dakota—Mitchell, Rapid City
- Texas—Buda, Fort Worth
- West Virginia—Wheeling
- Wisconsin—Prairie du Chien, Richfield
“These events offer hunters easy access to a Certified Measurer. It’s a 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.
To enter a trophy into the Boone and Crockett Club Awards Program, it must be dried 60 days after harvest and scored by an Official Measurer like those at the Cabela’s events. Measurers can also assist in entering trophies that meet or exceed minimum entry scores.
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.
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.
