Featured Hunting Story
Ron Evans 2014 Crossbow Buck
I can't remember ever seeing the same big buck three seasons in a row. If I didn't get him by the second year he would disappear – no doubt killed by a shotgun hunter.
What is the NYS Big Buck Club?
The Official Record Book for New York State's Biggest and Best Whitetails, as well as, New York State Trophy Bear records.
All animals are scored using the Boone & Crockett scoring system.
Entry into the New York State Record Book requires that three basic criteria be met:
Record Book Classifications
Bucks Found Dead (typical & non-typical)
Shed Antlers (typical & non-typical)
Minimum Score Requirements
Gun - Typical 140, Non-Typical 165
Archery - Typical 120, Non-Typical 145
Muzzleloader - Typical 140, Non-Typical 165
Bear - Gun 18", Archery 17", Muzzleloader 18"
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.
