I just saw the listings on the trophies entered in the 27th Big Game Awards that took place this summer in Reno Nevada. The top trophies entered in the last awards period are invited and undergo a panel scoring. The trophies are meticulously scored and either the entry score is upheld or changed depending on how the panel scores the trophy. I had scored three of the trophies entered and the scores were upheld on all three and to top that off, they all took first place in their categories. I always feel good when I score a trophy and a panel score agrees with how I scored it; It shows me that I am scoring accurately and within the strict guidelines of the scoring system. Duane Chapman's San Carlos bull scored 404 1/8, Larry Landes's New Mexico antelope scored 91 4/8 and Brian Balmer's typical Arizona coues scored 127 0/8. The photos of Brian's antlers don't really do it justice, but I don't have a field photo at present. There were many great trophies entered in the 27th Big Game Awards.
