boone and crockett publicATIONS
The Boone and Crockett Club’s publishing history began in 1893 with the release of its first Acorn series book, American Big Game Hunting. Each Acorn series book included a collection of essays about hunting, adventures in the outdoors, and historical perspectives of important conservation achievements, such as the protection of Yellowstone National Park. Seven additional editions of Acorn series books were published until the Club’s first records book premiered in 1932. Over the past 80 years, the Club has continued to release big-game records books, as well as select titles on conservation and its history. Five of its Acorn series books are now digitally remastered. And, with the release of A Whitetail Deer Retrospective in 2006, the Club began a new era of hunting history books that now includes A Mule Deer Retrospective and An American Elk Retrospective.
Today, the Club’s publishing program serves as a vehicle to distribute the Club’s mission, vision, and goals, and provides funding to the Club’s mission-based programs, such as hunting ethics, big-game records-keeping, conservation education, and conservation policy. As a 501 c(3) nonprofit, book sales help fund the Club's mission-based programs.
To date the Club has published over 60 volumes on various topics. Some of these include: Records of North American Big Game, Boone and Crockett Club's 29th Big Game Awards, How to Score North American Big Game, Theodore Roosevelt: Hunter-Conservationist, Hunting the American West, and Wild Gourmet.
