Over 95 North American big game trophies were shipped to Reno with the assistance of Cabela’s or other means to be panel-scored by a cadre of the Club’s top Official Measurers. Numerous teams of two measurers each meticulously verified the scores of all the trophies during the 28th Awards Judges Panel.

Review of the 28th Awards Program

Jack R eneau

Director, Big Game Records

4,921 trophies accepted during Boone and Crockett Club’s 28th Big Tan heGame Awards Program (2010-2012) that closed December 31, 2012, is all-time high. This number is just slightly greater than the 4,906 trophies accepted in the previous 27th Awards Program, but acceptances continue at all-time highs. Thirty-six of the 38 big-game categories recognized by the Club were represented in the 28th Awards Program. No entries were received and/or accepted for jaguar or polar bear.

The Silver Legacy Resort and Casino, Reno, Nevada, was host to the Club’s 28th Big Game Awards Program Banquet and related activities Wednesday through Saturday, July 17-20, 2013. Trophy owners, young hunters, and guests alike enjoyed the convenience of having nearly all of the associated activities in the Reno Ballroom adjacent to the magnificent display of award-winning trophies. Following a special Thursday evening welcome reception for hunters and their guests on June 18, the Club held its second triennial Generation Next Reception and Banquet on Friday evening to recognize and honor the young hunters age 16 and under that had trophies accepted in the 28th Awards Program and displayed them in Reno. After a lively auction of special hunts on Saturday afternoon, a record number of over 400 trophy owners and guests witnessed 81 hunters receive Boone and Crockett Club Medallions as photos of their trophies were projected onto a giant screen. Ninety-five trophies were displayed/honored at the 28th Awards Program Banquet. There really aren’t enough superlatives in the English language to describe the quality of many of these trophies. In addition to a new World’s Record Rocky Mountain goat, there were numerous other trophies recognized with B&C Medallions and Certificates that rank in B&C’s All-time top-10 for their category, as well as some new state and provincial records. Following is a summary of the highlights of some of the finest North American big-game trophies that have ever been accepted and recorded by Boone and Crockett Club. These trophies are proof-positive that hunter-supported, wildlife management is working in North America.

Central Canada Barren Ground Caribou

Todd G. Schoepke

hunted family land since I was 10 years Ipart’ve old. Like most hunters, it is an important of my life. So in 2005 when my cousin

Bill Schoepke asked me to join a group he was planning to hunt elk with, I said yes. A short time later, he called to say this hunt had changed to a Central Canada barren ground caribou hunt from September 7-12, 2006, with Barry Taylor’s Arctic Safaris, 40 miles south of the Arctic Circle. Wow! How cool Todd G. Schoepke accepting his would this be? My wife Michelle was excited plaque and medal from Buck Buckner, for me, but when I told her the date, she lost Vice President of B&C’s Big Game a little enthusiasm. September 7 was our 10th Records Division. wedding anniversary. I can tell you this: I am the luckiest husband in the world, because she knew this was a once-in-alifetime opportunity for me and gave me her blessing.

My cousin Bill and I had hunted together since we were old enough to carry a gun. We had plenty of stories together, and this trip would be no different. When we were in the airport waiting to catch our next flight, I was awakened by my cousin sitting on my lap and saying, “Honey, happy anniversary.” He handed me a range finder and said, “Your wife wanted you to have this.” I laughed and said, “Get off me; people are staring.” I told you I have a great wife. This was something I could really use, but it did cause me to regret not being home on my anniversary. During our next layover, we met other hunters that were on the same hunt as us. We also saw Jim Zumbo waiting to go on a hunt. I don’t remember where he said he was going, or even what he was hunting. I was so excited to meet him, and he was very gracious. We took some pictures and parted ways. This trip was great and would only get better. A floatplane would be our final flight into camp, which was located on a pristine lake 185 air miles north of Yellowknife. We would stay in grain bins to protect us from bears. Bill and I would be together, and our guide Neil McKeller was one of the most experienced guys in the group. He was a Canadian Mountie with numerous knee surgeries, but I soon found out he moved like a pack mule. I couldn’t believe how hard it was to keep up with him.

Neil would say, “I like to hunt smarter, not harder.” The first day, we spent a lot of time glassing and saw a lot of caribou. Neil said the caribou were not moving as good as they should be, but we did see some great ones. At one point, while trying to get to a good shooting point, we needed to cross a flat. My cousin asked, “What are the chances we get busted in the middle?” Neil replied, “Pretty good.” Sure enough, at that time the herd came around the bluff and right at us. We dropped to our bellies and watched as the herd split us, walking on both sides. My cousin had first choice and decided to pass, but we got incredible video of the herd. In camp that evening, others were discussing that they didn’t see as much as we did, and they seemed bewildered that we didn’t shoot anything. While lying in our beds that night, Bill and I decided that we might want to curb our enthusiasm when talking about what we had seen. The next day I would have first choice, and I was thinking I’d better not be too picky. That morning, Neil informed us that we would go to the opposite end of the lake. I asked

Neil, “Why don’t we go back to where we were the day before?” He said that others also wanted to try that area. I replied, “Good, let’s go find a big one down there.” Neil smiled and said, “I like your attitude.” We didn’t see any caribou we could get a shot at, but we had a great day. There is something to be said about being 40 miles off the Arctic Circle: seeing views firsthand that many will never see, and dipping your drinking cup in the glacier waters to quench your thirst. I assure you there is no better-tasting water in the world. Second night conversation with Bill had us wondering if the others were right, that we should have taken a shot the first day. We both agreed that if we didn’t get anything we would still have the best hunt of our lives just with what we had experienced already. The third day we went to the south end of the lake and glassed all day. We didn’t see anything so Neil said we would go to “Neil’s Rock.” This was a great vantage point. Bill had first choice, so I had video equipment out to film him if he got a shot. While watching a draw, Neil looked over his shoulder and spotted a group crossing the water. Not only did Neil travel like a pack mule, he also had eyes like an eagle. We would have to get down the hill, across some water, go up the other rise, and cross a flat to get a shot. Bill and Neil were halfway down the hill while I was packing up my video equipment. I heard Neil say to Bill, “Is Todd coming?” I yelled, “I’ll catch you before we get to the water,” and I did. We crossed the water, ran up the rise, and we moved half-crouched across the flats to get into position for the shot. Neil picked one out for Bill, and said, “Wait until I pick one for Todd; we are going to try a double.” We didn’t accomplish a double, but I did hit one just behind the shoulder. The caribou didn’t run, and Neil still had his binoculars up. “That’s a good one! That’s a good one! Get him on the ground!” Neil said. I shot one more time and the caribou fell. When we walked up to him, Neil said, “This one could be close to 400 inches.” The feeling was incredible. I felt like I was in a dream. We packed it back to the boat and placed the antlers at the front of the boat for all to see as we arrived at camp. The reception was great, and Neil green-scored it at 389. The final day my cousin got his caribou, and the excitement was just as great. Packing up was bittersweet. One last look and a drink of cold glacier water sent us back to Yellowknife. Waiting there was Greg from Robertson’s Taxidermy. He would mount the caribou, and ship it back to Wausau, Wisconsin. I can tell you that after spending such a short time with my trophy, leaving it behind was hard to do. The following spring, the ice road truckers would be the ones to route it back to me. Greg called me and informed me I couldn’t get it officially scored in Yellowknife because the roads were melting, and he needed to ship it out immediately. I was anxious to see my trophy again. My hunt was a hunt of a lifetime, regardless of the score of the animal. My cousin and I have an addition to our long list of hunting stories. I hope no one grows tired of listening to them. I’ll never get tired of telling them.
