Trophy Awards
Why do wildlife scores matter? The Trophy Awards are more than hunters looking for “bragging rights” – this information is an important part of our hunting heritage. Scorekeeping is a valuable part of conservation and future wildlife management. Organizations like the Pope and Young Club and the Boone and Crockett Club have been collecting wildlife records for many years. These records tell stories about the health of a population, as high scores represent a mature animals and a balanced age-class structure in a healthy population. Records build a timeline of both positive and negative trends in wildlife health. The ongoing presence of “trophy quality animals” is a wildlife stewardship triumph that should be celebrated by hunters, outfitters, and the general public.
Members of APOS can submit Trophy Awards at no cost by providing a B&C or P&Y scoresheet. For more information on the entry criteria, please email info@apos.ab.ca.

Legacy Awards
The Legacy Awards were established to celebrate the long term commitment members have to the outfitting industry within Alberta. A career in outfitting has its ups and downs, and requires sacrifice, patience, and resilience. Legacy Awards recognize two milestones – 20 years of service and 40 years of service.
