Top Spots to Kill a Trophy...
I'm not much of a big game hunter anymore, more a meat hunter than anything like a head hunter but...If I were I'd sure pay heed to the recent Boone and Crockett Club's 125th Anniversary release of the top 125 counties in the lower 48 to down a Booner...
In the Top 10 Wyoming led the way with 4 counties producing a whopping 618 pronghorn listings. California (375 Columbian black-tail deer) and Montana (266 bighorn rams) each placed 2 counties in the Top 10.
The overall winner was Arizona with 15 counties in the Top 125 followed by Wyoming with 14; Montana 12 (8 bighorn ram, 3 shiras moose, 1 bison); New Mexico, 11; and Oregon and Colorado 10 each.
By the way, Montana won the Rocky Mountain Bighorn Ram contest in a landslide; no other state even close.
