Records of North American Big Game is the official records book for outstanding North American big game trophies. This volume is the eleventh in a series of world renowned records books begun by the Boone and Crockett Club in 1932. The tabular listings are based upon the Boone and Crockett Club's copyrighted method of scoring. First adopted in 1950, this is the universally recognized standard for judging North American big game. Hunters, wildlife biologists, state and provincial game managers, federal wildlife officials and anyone with a sincere interest in biological data of big game species will find this book an invaluable reference source.
This book features: Eight new World's Records for typical whitetail deer, typical and non-typical American elk, Pacific walrus,
blacktail, Alaska-Yukon moose, Sitka Central Canada barren ground caribou and muskox.
