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.

2016 Awards Banquet

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 26 individuals in 7 categories, with archery hunters entering 14 of those trophy class animals.

Burlington Township; Gary Crane of Ulster for Typical deer W/Bow at 142-1 taken in Smithfield Township, and Brice Jenney of Milan for Non-typical Deer W/Gun at 200-7 taken in Smithfield Township. The Jenny buck surpasses the previous record by 20-0 inches, ranks as the thirteenth largest non-typical in the 2016 PA Record Book, and is the highest scoring buck entered in our Awards since the Club's inception in 2007.

 

The top black bear awards were presented to: Caleb Wilson of Meshoppen for Black Bear W/Gun at 20-5 taken in Wilmot Township weighing 409 pounds, and Chad Carlson of Columbia Cross Roads for Female Black Bear taken in Armenia Township weighing 289 pounds.
