In this newly revised edition of How to Score North American Big Game, Boone and Crockett Club collaborated with Pope and Young Club to bring both organizations’ scoring manuals into a single text. From its founding in 1961, Pope and Young has used Boone and Crockett’s scoring system. With the steps taken by both organizations to bring slight differences that developed over time together, this was the natural next step in ensuring uniform use of the system throughout North America. The resulting text is the definitive guide to the correct use of the Boone and Crockett scoring system with both organizations’ rules and procedures clearly outlined.
The challenges facing bowhunting’s future are ever evolving. Anti-hunters and activists continue to work to destroy our heritage and redefine our way of life. Many of the privileges hunters enjoy are being trampled, but we will not let our heritage be destroyed. We will not forget our history. We will not permit these challenges to diminish the vital role bowhunting plays in our culture. For over 60 years, Pope and Young has procured and preserved the records of bowhunting and bowhunter’s greatest accomplishments. Under our watch these records will not be erased. Collectively, Pope and Young members will not allow our hunting privileges to be reduced or forgotten. Bowhunting’s long, proud heritage will not be destroyed.
Today we continue our 60-year long mission with a new brand and a renewed commitment.
A mission that seeks to Preserve, Promote, and Protect Bowhunting.
