|The following organizational links are to hunting related internet sites that I have enjoyed. Give them a visit and see what they have to offer.|
Boone and Crockett Club Homepage--This Homepage of the premiere record keeping authority for North American game animals provides links to all club activities including pictures and details on the top animal in each category.
Boone and Crockett Club Score Charts--This page of the Boone and Crockett Club provides score chart forms so that a hunter can print them out and do a rough score on a trophy to determine if an official scorer needs to be contacted.
Buckmaster's Best Bucks--This page of the relatively new Buckmaster's Trophy Records (BTR) provides links to pictures and details on the top white-tailed deer in each category.The BTR scoring method does not penalize a trophy because it did not grow antlers in some man created prescribed manner. It measures the antlers that the deer grew and records the results. (For instance, the "air" of spread is not considered in the score.)
Buckmaster's Score Sheet--This link takes you to an unofficial score sheet where you can score your own trophy interactively and get immediate results.(Venado is a scorer for BTR and anyone in the San Antonio area that has taken a deer with antlers that he believes will qualify can contact Venado through the guestbook or e-mail and arrange to have the antlers officially scored for the BTR Record Book)
The National Rifle Association of America--This will take you to the NRA homepage where their many activities involving protection of your Second Amendment rights can be accessed. If you are not a member of the NRA and believe in the constitutional right to bear arms, they need you now. As a result of the people electing Bill Clinton as President, your constitutional rights have never been under a more severe assault.
