The Boone and Crockett Club states that it does not approve of using their scoring system for captive deer:

As it should be.

Not sure why they could just say that the animals couldn't be entered. I think that any club should be able to accept or deny any entry they want to keep in line with their beliefs and history.

Wonder if B&C has a patent or copyright on their scoring system?

I have no problem with their stance on free range.

However what I disagree with is when they state:

The Club's records program was established in 1906 as a way of detailing species once thought headed for extinction. Today, the B&C scoring system is used to collect data on free-ranging big game. These data reflect successful conservation efforts, population health and habitat quality. Biologists compare and contrast records to improve local management strategies as well as state and federal wildlife policies.

In my opinion:

Any animal making the B&C record book is that special 1 in a million free range animal. My concerns have always been. How can data collected from such a small portion of a particular species be used to improve management strategies confused2

I believe the B&C minimums are to high to be used as any form of free range management strategy. It is like trying to manage a 4 leaf clover.


O'well you know what they say about opinions.

It's no management strategy, but if you look at the stats over the years, you can easily see the increase of trophies entered in modern times, say, the last 20 years, and extrapolate some indication of the improvement (or lack) in conservation/management.

The Club irks me sometimes with their holier than thou stance on many topics within the hunting community, which I think are more divisive than helpful for our way of life.

So educate me on the hate for B&C.

I am not now, nor ever have been, a member and honestly do not know the back story.
