World's Records

World's Record Grizzly Bear
A hunter found the World's Record grizzly skull near McGrath, Alaska in 1976. He stored it in his attic for 30 years before having it officially scored. Turns out it's the largest grizzly skull ever recorded. In April 1974 a friend and I flew in a Piper Super Cub to the McGrath, Alaska area for a...
World's Record Black Bear
The World's Record black bear skull was found near Ephraim, Utah, and shipped to Boone and Crockett headquarters in Washington, D.C., where it was examined by experts at the Smithsonian to determine its authenticity. On July 1, 1975, the world’s record black bear skull was found along the edge of...
WR-SS_Chadwick-ClarkRetouching.png
L.S. Chadwick's World's Record Stone's sheep is considered to be the greatest North American big-game trophy ever taken. It has stood at the top spot of its respective category for over 80 years. Lee Sherman Chadwick was enterprising enough to hunt Stone’s sheep ( Ovis dalli stonei ) in British...
World's Record Dall's Sheep
Harry Swank received the Sagamore Hill Award for an epic hunt that earned him the World's Record Dall's sheep. Having gained the experience he needed on earlier hunts for Dall’s sheep ( Ovis dalli dalli ), Harry Swank, Jr., a resident of Anchorage, decided to try for a really outstanding ram in...
World's Record Desert Sheep
The World's Record desert sheep has held the top spot for more than 70 years. Carl M. Scrivens of Jackson, Wyoming, has taken impressive desert sheep ( Ovis canadensis nelsoni ), but this accomplished hunter has not shot a ram that compares to the extraordinary trophy he found in 1941 during a...
World's Record Musk Ox - Tie Shockey
Craig D. Scott claimed this World's Record musk ox in 2002. Two-Way Tie! Musk ox ( Ovibos moschatus moschatus ) populations in the Northwest Territories have been doing very well over the last few decades, after having been virtually eliminated during the early part of the last century. They have...
World's Record Rocky Mountain Goat
In 2011, in British Columbia, Canada, Heidi Gutfrucht guided Troy M. Sheldon to this World's Record Rocky Mountain goat. My longtime hunting friend, Carey Renner, and I have a bucket list of hunts we want to complete before we can no longer go after big game. We take turns picking out the species...
World's Record Bison
The World's Record bison was shot by the Park's Chief Ranger Sam Woodring in 1926. For years, tourists visiting Yellowstone National Park were awed by a bison skull displayed in the Chief Ranger’s office in Mammoth Hot Springs. The replica was based off the original skull that was stored in the...
World's Record Quebec-Labrador Caribou
Zack Elbow's World's Record Quebec-Labrador caribou was donated to Boone and Crockett's National Collection of Heads and Horns in 1951. This fine caribou trophy, and the story behind its discovery, makes a person wonder how many potential big-game world’s records were taken by Canada's native Inuit...
World's Record Central Canada Barren Ground Caribou
Donald J. Hotter III's World's Record central Canada barren ground caribou has a final score of 433-4/8 points. As any experienced caribou hunter might tell you, when you're in the animals it can be difficult to decide on which bull to shoot. Especially if you're seeing lots of antlers and it’s...
