Rob Howe Idaho Fish and Game

Individuals wanting to have their big game antlers, horns or skulls measured and scored by official Boone & Crockett scorers will have an opportunity to do so free of charge this March.

The scoring event will be held at the at the Fish & Game Regional Office located at 4279 Commerce Circle in Idaho Falls. Measuring will be done according to Boone & Crockett standards for North American game animals.

Submissions will be accepted at the regional office on Wednesday, March 11, and must be picked up on Friday, March 13, between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. 

Items brought in for measuring must be free of flesh and must have air-dried for a minimum of 60 days. Please note that air-drying is not the same as freezer storage.

 Information required at the time of drop-off includes:

• Hunter or owners name

• Date of harvest

• Location of harvest, including big game unit, county and state

• Address and telephone number

• Guide’s name and address if applicable.

The service is free and all submissions will be scored regardless of size. “Every animal is a trophy to someone and has a memory attached to it,” says James Brower with Fish & Game. “We are happy to score any animal brought by, so bring it in if you are curious. All it will cost you is a hunting story.”
