New York State Big Buck Club



New All-Time NYS Bear Record?

Anthony Ugarte took this record book black bear with rifle in Greene County during the 2011 bear season. The skull was recently scored at 22 7/16" beating the old NYS record taken by Michael Mangano in 2009. Mangano's archery bear measured 22 6/16" and still ranks as the top bear ever taken with bow in NYS.

Ugarte's bear must now be panel scored by the NYSBBC at it's annual March meeting before officially taking it's place as New York's top bear harvest of all time.

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.
