Big Game Awards


February 2025

winners will be awarded at our annual Banquet

Big Game awards

Did you harvest a big game animal in Idaho this year with your bow? If so, you are eligible for Big Game Awards. If you feel your trophy would be in the running for Best of Species or Bowhunter of the Year Awards, bring it in on scoring day to be scored by a Pope and Young Official. Every member who enters will receive a small award but the highest score for each species will be given the award for Best of Species. 

Note: Animal does not have to be scored to be eligible for small awards. All members who harvest a big game animal with a bow in Idaho will be recognized at our annual banquet.
