Thirty amazing-but-true stories, each starring a determined hunter and a world-class trophy – most taken without a guide on public land – are the featured attractions in a new book by the Boone and Crockett Club.

“Big Trophies, Epic Hunts” is a collection of incredible tales from Boone and Crockett’s trophy archives.

“These are the real-world stories behind some of the most legendary, top-scoring trophies ever recognized by the Boone and Crockett Club,” said Julie Tripp, director of publications for the Club.
