Long considered "The Book" of big game records, Boone and Crockett Club's newest edition of Records of North American Big Game is the most complete big game records book cataloging the greatest big game ever taken in North America.
This volume of Records of North American Big Game is the thirteenth in a series of world renowned records books begun by the Boone and Crockett Club in 1932. The tabular listings are based on the Boone and Crockett Club's copyrighted method of scoring. First adopted in 1950, this is the universally recognized standard for judging North American big game. Hunters, wildlife biologists, state and provincial game managers, federal wildlife officials, and anyone with a sincere interest in biological data of big game species will find this book an invaluable reference source.
