KDWP Awards Certificates for Trophy Game Achievements in Kansas

By Trish Svoboda

The Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks (KDWP) maintains records highlighting hunters who have successfully bagged bucks, antelopes, and elk over the years. Some of these scores have stood unbroken for decades, while others were more recently set.

The KDWP distributes certificates to hunters who take trophy game through an application process. Requirements for this application process include:

· Hunter must have a valid permit.

· Trophy must have been taken by legal means during the legal open season.

· Scoring must be completed by a certified Pope & Young, Boone & Crockett or Kansas measurer following a 60-day waiting period.

· Those qualifying for the Kansas top 20 list must be checked by a certified Pope & Young or Boone & Crockett measure.
