RECENTLY ACCEPTED INTO THE BOONE & CROCKETT CLUB

Two black bears that once roamed the fields and mountains of Bradford County were recently accepted into Boone & Crockett's 28th Big Game Awards program. The largest of the two was taken in Ulster Township in 2011 by Jeff Fassett of Ulster. Jeff's bear scored 21-11/16 and its estimated live weight (ELW) was 638 lbs. making it the heaviest bear in our records. The previous record was a 617 lb. bruin taken by Kelly Devine in Orwell Township. Of the 763 entries in the 2013 PA Record Book, Jeff's bear ranked No. 60. by skull measurement.


The second B&C entry was taken in 2011 in Asylum Township by Matt Santiago of Towanda. That skull measured 21-1/16 and its ELW was 473 lbs. Matt's bear currently ranks 10th by skull measurement, and 21st by weight in our records, and No. 164 in the state records.


These bears are awesome trophies that exceeded the 21-0/16 minimum for acceptance into B&C's all-time Records of North American Big Game. 19-0/16 is the minimum for acceptance into our Club and the PA Record Book.

2017 Awards Banquet

Our 11th Annual Big Game Awards Banquet took place on September 23, 2017 at Alparon Park/Troy Fairgrounds in Troy, PA. Bradford County's biggest and most recently harvested whitetail deer and black bears, plus shed antlers were accepted into our Big Game Records.

 

Big Game Awards were presented to 31 individuals in 7 categories, with archery hunters entering 22 of those trophy class animals.

 

The top whitetail awards were presented to: Braden Felter of Wyalusing for Youth Typical at 129-4 taken in Tuscarora Township; Bill Hannan of Franklin, NJ for Typical Deer Gun at 147-2 taken in Wells Township; Jordan Newton of Wyalusing for Typical Deer Archery at 140-4 taken in Asylum Township; Timothy Bull of Monroeton for Typical Deer Muzzleloader at 140-0 taken in Franklin Township; and Kyle Jackson of Columbia Cross Roads for Non-Typical Deer Archery at 173-0 taken in Springfield Township. The Jackson buck surpasses the previous record by 17-6 to become the new No. 1 for that category. With nearly 22 inches of abnormal points, the Jackson buck now ranks 29 in the PA State Record Book for that category.

 

The top black bear award was presented to Roger Strobridge of Troy, PA for a Troy Township bruin taken on November 21, 2016. The bear scored 21-2/16, weighed 523 pounds, and was aged at 6 years 10 months.

 

Also, the top entries in the shed antler categories added to our records were a matching set found by Kelly Devine of Rome at 117-6, and a massive single beam found by Charles Watkins of Towanda at 80-6, which takes over as a new No.1 for that category.

 

Congratulations to all those hunters who were part of our 2017 Big Game Awards Program, and a big thank you to our Sponsors and all those who attended this celebration of Bradford County's big game hunting heritage.
