For more than one hundred years the Boone and Crockett Club (named after fabled frontiersmen and hunters Daniel Boone and David Crockett) has been an organized of hunters who sought out the big-game animals of North America. Now the organizations century-old history has been illustrated and documented in "A Whitetail Retrospective Vintage Photos And Memorabilia From The Boone And Crockett Club Archives", a 340-page compendium of letters, memos, maps, articles, photos, and records showcasing the activities and accomplishments of its membership. Organized by decades in their chronological order, the club's history is presented from its earliest days in 1830 through 1979. Here are the most significant whitetail deer trophies ever recorded, including the Breen Buck, Mel Johnson's archery Worlds Record, James Jordan's legendary typical from Wisconsin, and so much more. "A Whitetail Retrospective" is informative and engaging reading which is especially recommended to contemporary deer hunters, and will provide an excellent introduction to the sport as faithfully recorded in the archives of the fabled Boone and Crockett Club.
