Are Older Trophies Eligible?

Yes. This means that any buck taken in New York is eligible for entry into the record book, regardless of age. The buck that grampa took back in the 1930’s, that has been hanging at camp since you were a little kid, is still eligible for entry. Just locate an official measurer in your area and make an appointment to have the buck scored.
