New Hampshire Antler and Skull Trophy Clubs mission is to preserve the records of all record big game animals taken in the Granite State.


How do we find such great trophies to measure? Some people bring their trophy to NH Outdoor shows. We sometimes receive score sheets from out-of-state hunters who had their trophies measured by a qualified measurer from another organization. We also find out about trophies by word of mouth, and social media pages. With the help of over 30 scorers in New Hampshire we are able to meet and learn about these trophies and the hunters behind them.  


Some hunters don’t get their trophies measured for varies reasons. If you know of any outstanding trophies let their owners know about us. The hunter, the animal, and the State of New Hampshire should get the recognition they deserve.
