Trophy Watch™ is a segment of Boone and Crockett Club's website dedicated to highlighting the more significant or interesting big game trophies taken recently across North America, as well as trophies entered and accepted into the B&C records. Rare or outstanding photos pertaining to native North American big game are also often posted.  It is a great venue to showcase fair chase trophies, debunk myths, separate fact from fiction, and to solicit the truth in regard to popular but often incorrect or incomplete emails mass circulating on the internet.    
Only photographs taken in good taste and showing respect for the animals hunted will be posted.  Occasionally, in the interest of clarification and secondary to the lack of access to better photographs, Trophy Watch may post pictures that would otherwise be deemed suboptimal (below the standards required for inclusion in other B&C publications).  Trophy Watch will exercise options to technologically change and improve the acceptability of a photograph if needed.  For helpful tips on taking memorable field photos, click here. B&C does not endorse or support any person, persons or trophies featured on this site.

   New World's Record Ram?
April 18, 2014

A massive bighorn sheep that died of natural causes and was later found by wildlife officials could be a new World's Record, according to the Boone and Crockett Club.

The ram was found in Alberta. The skull now is in possession of provincial officials and will be entered into Boone and Crockett records on behalf of the citizens of Alberta.

"Many hunters are unaware that Boone and Crockett records include many found trophies," said Richard Hale, chairman of the Club's Big Game Records Committee. "The main reason we keep records is to document conservation success. Although they aren't taken by hunters, found trophies are nonetheless an important gauge of outstanding habitat, strong recruitment of game animals into older age classes, sustainable harvest objectives and other elements of sound wildlife management. Picked-up trophies are an integral part of the conservation success story. Without them, the story is incomplete."

Alberta biologists speculate the bighorn died in early summer 2013 at 10-1/2 years of age.

Boone and Crockett official measurers in Alberta taped the horns and alerted the Club they had totaled a preliminary green score that would exceed the current World's Record. That ram, also from Alberta, scored 208-3/8 B&C points and was taken in 2000.

Although Montana has been producing some tremendous rams in recent years, all Boone and Crockett World's Record bighorn sheep throughout history have come from Alberta.

The long-followed next procedural steps for certifying a new World's Record include an evaluation of an official score sheet (prepared after the required 60-day drying time) and photos, and officially entering the trophy into Boone and Crockett records. If all remains in order, the Club will convene a special judge's panel to re-score the ram, confirm a final score and make a World's Record determination.

An official announcement should follow within the next 90 days, said Hale.
