Boone and Crockett ClubThe Boone and Crockett Club maintains the records of native North American big game as a vital conservation record in assessing the success of wildlife management programs. In response to public interest generated by the Club's National Collection of Heads and Horns in the s, and increased hunting by the general public, the Club established an official measurement and scoring system for trophy big game. The National Collection and the measurement system were initially conceived to record species of North American big game thought to be vanishing. Club Members and others in the scientific community soon recognized that the system was an effective means of tracking the success of new conservation policies. The first formal recognition of outstanding North American big game trophies by the Boone and Crockett Club was in the records book. It involved relatively few specimens that were listed by simple criteria of length and spread of horns, antlers or skulls.

The Boone and Crockett Club is an American nonprofit organization that advocates fair chase hunting in support of habitat conservation. The club is North America's oldest wildlife and habitat conservation organization, founded in the United States in by Theodore Roosevelt. The club was named in honor of hunter-heroes of the day, Daniel Boone and Davy Crockett , whom the club's founders viewed as pioneering men who hunted extensively while opening the American frontier , but realized the consequences of overharvesting game. In addition to authoring a famous " fair chase " statement of hunter ethics,  the club worked for the expansion and protection of Yellowstone National Park and the establishment of American conservation in general. The Club and its members were also responsible for the elimination of commercial market hunting , creation of the National Park and National Forest Services , National Wildlife Refuge system, wildlife reserves , and funding for conservation, all under the umbrella of what is known today as the North American Model of Wildlife Conservation.
