American Elk Retrospective

Vintage Photos and Memorabilia from the Boone and Crockett Club Archives

Book Description

Boone and Crockett Club Publication, a fascinating, comprehensive look at the story of elk hunting in America from the nation's premiere big game hunting historians.

With the recent increase in publicity about trophy elk being taken by modern-day hunters, interest in elk and elk hunting is at an all-time high. To address this new development, we present the follow-up "retrospective" book about this much sought after trophy animal. The evolution of elk hunting beginning in the 1880s is beautifully illustrated with vintage field and portrait photographs making An American Elk Retrospective the ultimate collection of days gone by for big game hunters.


Founded by Theodore Roosevelt in 1887, the Boone and Crockett Club maintains the highest standards of fair-chase sportsmanship and habitat stewardship, and is the universally recognized keeper of the records of native North American big game.
