Once again, the Southeast Region of Idaho Fish and Game will host a Big Game Scoring Day.
This event will be on Tuesday, April 16, at the Fish and Game regional office at 1345 Barton Road in Pocatello.
Measuring for Boone & Crockett for rifle and pistol, Pope & Young for archery and Longhunter's Society for muzzleloader will be conducted for entry into the big game record books.
Interested hunters may bring their antlers, horns and skulls to the regional office in Pocatello beginning Thursday, April 11, until Monday, April 15.
Items being brought for measuring must be free of flesh and skin, and must have been air-dried for 60 days. Please note that air-drying is not the same as freezer storage.
Information required at the time of drop off includes:
- Hunter name.
- Date of harvest.
- Location of harvest, including big game unit, county and state.
- Owner name, address and telephone number.
- Guide's name and address, if applicable.
"It is so exciting to see such great Idaho trophies come through the office doors for scoring. Each year brings its own surprises," said Jennifer Jackson, regional conservation educator for Fish and Game. "The service is free, so even if you are not sure your item is a record-worthy trophy, bring it by anyway. We will be happy to rough score it."
All items must be picked up during business hours on Wednesday, April 17, or Thursday, April 18. For more information, please contact the Pocatello Fish and Game office at 208-232-4703.
