Photo by Elizabeth Earl/Peninsula Clarion Don Poole measures the circumference of a mule deer's antler duing a Boone and Crockett Club and Pope and Young Club trophy measuring day on Sunday, Jan. 8, 2017 at Sportsman's Warehouse in Soldotna, Alaska. Poole has been an official measurer for both clubs since 1980. Hunters brought in game they'd killed for Poole to measure and score for potential recording by the Boone and Crockett Club, now more than a century old. Store patrons and workers walked by and stopped to admire the various racks and mounted heads waiting to be measured, exchanging stories. All trophies have to be dried for at least 60 days from the date of kill and pre-measured by the owner to check that it makes minimum scores. Score sheets and instructions for measuring can be found online on the Boone and Crockett and Pope and Young websites. Trophy measuring will aslo take place Feb. 12 and March 12 from 1 p.m.- 3 p.m.
