If They Qualify, the Boone and Crockett Club Accepts Archery, Crossbow, Shotgun, Handgun—and the Randomly Deceased Entry. Recent non-typical whitetail deer entries highlight the Boone and Crockett Club’s 100-year record-keeping history
It’s More Faith Than Equipment—It really isn’t about the equipment, you do the best you can with what you have. Rather, it’s knowing where and how to look, and believing that if you look long enough and hard enough you will see the game you seek.
In the latest release from the Boone and Crockett Club’s Classics Series, you travel to a far away land of living dinosaurs, lava-spewing volcanoes, and, of course, there’s King Kong.
Uniquely American, it’s otherwise enigmatic, with no brand name. Millions of hunters own one. Winchester’s 94, the archetypal deer rifle, was built from 1894 to 2006 in New Haven. Excerpt from Fair Chase Magazine By Wayne Van Zwoll, regular contributor, photos courtesy of author To some hunters a...
Why deer have non-typical antlers—and why the Boone and Crockett Club keeps track of them. If a big set of typical antlers were human, I’d like to assume they would be concerned about pairing their wines properly with their entree. Then perhaps they would retire to the study for a discussion of geopolitics in Equatorial Guinea. As for their non-typical cousins, I’d like to think they’d most likely settle for the Miller Lite that’s been rolling around the back of the truck all summer, and then they would attempt a backflip dismount off a rope swing. In other words, there might be something a little wild and unsettling about old Uncle Buck. In a way, that’s precisely the case.
Going afield this fall? Sure you are. Taking a photo with your spoils? Sure you are. Do yourself (and hunting) a favor by considering a few of these tips for better field photos.
By PJ DelHomme Sure, it’s legal, but is it right? With a high-powered rifle and a pile of optics worth more than my twelve-year-old truck, I assumed filling a couple pronghorn tags in southwestern Montana would be easy. I had two days to get it done. No problem, I thought. In time, though, I would...
Sergei Spitsyn exemplifies the spirit that motivates us. With enormous effort and at considerable personal risk, Sergei spends up to nine months each year roaming these landscapes to survey snow leopards and argali. By James P. Gibbs, Professor in the State University of New York’s Department of...
By Craig Boddington — When hunting alone, the outcome of any approach, opportunity, or shot is altogether between the hunter and his or her reflection in the mirror. When hunting with a guide or buddy, there might be a couple of witnesses, but ours is mostly a solitary pursuit. For many, meat on the table remains a primary and valid motivation to hunt. Today’s hunters are guided more by conscience, sense of ethics, and the drive to perform well.
Trail cameras over water sources pose a threat to the animals that rely on that water to survive, and the debate over using cameras for hunting heats up, especially in the Southwest.
It’s a matter of history that one of the first sporting uses of the .30-06 Springfield cartridge was by Boone and Crockett Club founder, Theodore Roosevelt, on his epic 1909-1910 safari. Except Roosevelt’s famous Springfield wasn’t actually a .30-06! Some time back I actually held that rifle at the Springfield Armory Museum, and the truth is it was chambered to the original 1903 version and never modified; thus, was actually a .30-03!
By Craig Boddington — Despite the current rage for long-range shooting it’s important to remember that close shots can occur almost anywhere. Bowhunters deal with this routinely; despite the challenge, they get close! Primarily a rifle hunter, I’m usually prepared for a longish shot, but I ascribe to the motto, “Get as close as you can, then get ten yards closer!”
MISSOULA, Mont. – The Boone and Crockett Club welcomed today’s release of the Biden Administration’s Conserving and Restoring America the Beautiful report guiding implementation of the 30 by 30 vision . The report outlines a broad framework for meeting the goals set forth by President Biden in...
