Fish and Game maintains this list, but does NOT publish an Idaho records book. The Idaho Big Game Records are maintained by the Idaho Department of Fish and Game (IDFG) to recognize trophy wild big game animals in Idaho. Game farm animals are not accepted.
The records are updated annually in May.
Rules for Entering Trophies
The minimum scores for entry into the Idaho Record Book are the same for archery, rifle, muzzleloader and "pick-up" entries.
