Vintage Photos and Memorabilia from the Boone and Crockett Club Archives

After nearly a century of Records Keeping, the Boone and Crockett Club has dug deep into its records archive and produced the ultimate history book for elk enthusiasts!

A fascinating, comprehensive look at the story of elk hunting in America from the nation’s premiere big game hunting historians.

An American Elk Retrospective takes readers back through the evolution of elk hunting from the late 1880s up through the 1970s, and is packed with hundreds of amazing vintage photos, historic score charts, records-keeping correspondence, and portraits of award-winning elk. Revisit some of the most publicized and significant elk trophies ever recorded: The legendary Dark Canyon bull taken in 1899 by John Plute, which stood as the World’s Record for decades, Fred Mercer’s typical American elk harvested in Montana during the 1950s that resulted in a Sagamore Hill Award, William D. DeWeese’s non-typical giant that was taken over 120 years ago in Colorado, and many other truly outstanding but lesser-known trophies.’
