Paul Navarre, CBA Banquet chairman
Who is handling the display this year?
my best, Paul
With the 2017 -18 CBA banquet coming in March, I want to remind and encourage everyone to participate in the CBA Awards Program. The following note outlines the CBA Awards Program rules for all awards submissions. An important point is that I must receive all award submissions by February 24th, 2017. It takes some time to process this information, make slides for the slide shows, and to order the plaques. Please send your best digital photographs for the slide shows and displays. Do not hesitate to contact me with questions.
CBA Big Game Awards: To enter an animal for awards consideration, it will need to be scored by a P & Y or B & C measurer (not SCI, or any other method), however not necessarily registered with either of those organizations. I will need copies of the following: The complete official score sheet signed by the hunter and measurer (front and back), I will also need the complete Fair Chase Affidavit (front and back), OR a copy of the P&Y Awards certificate if applicable.
Trophies do not have to meet P & Y minimums to receive an award, but they do need to be officially scored (see above), and all the above paperwork sent to me via email to: (firstname.lastname@example.org) Only animals taken in the current year are eligible for awards - with the exception of cougars that haven’t yet been scored due to the required drying period. These exceptions are normally entered the following year. Generally, only the current year’s trophies are displayed at the banquet. Exceptions are usually made for trophies that have not been previously displayed, (usually due to taxidermy not being completed) or other reasons (a special display, etc.) agreed upon by the Trophy display committee, including the Big Game Chairman. Only CBA members’ trophies are accepted for awards and display at the banquet. Unlike P & Y, we don’t charge a separate fee for recognition. The awards and display is to recognize our members, not the public. If there is a tie for one of the top 2 places, we only give 3 awards. Thus, a tie for first would result in two first place awards and one third place award. A tie for second place would result in one first place and two second place awards. Obviously, a tie for third would result in four awards – one for first, one for second, and two for third.
Continued - Other award rules for your consideration:
FIRST TIMER AWARD: To submit a bowhunter for a first timer award, please send me the following information: • First Timer’s name and address: • Species taken: • County / state / location the species was taken: • Date of kill: • And of course, field photo(s) for the Awards program slide show
CBA special achievement awards: Big 8-9-10 The pursuit of all Colorado species continues to gain in popularity as bowhunters from across the state strive to complete the Colorado Big 8, Big 9 and even the Big 10.
The CBA Big 8 was created to recognize Colorado bow hunters who have taken the following Colorado big game animals (either sex) with bow and arrow. If multiple animals of the same species have been taken, simply list the first one. (There is no specific order the animals must be taken and fair chase is implied)
Colorado Big 8: Rocky Mountain Elk, Mule Deer, Whitetail Deer, Pronghorn, Mountain Goat, Rocky Mountain Big Horn Sheep, Black Bear, and Mountain Lion
* Entries may include either male or female animals of the species. * Animals do not need to not need to be scored or meet any minimum score requirement. * All animals must be taken in compliance with the regulations and laws of the State of Colorado.
At that time, (When this award for this special achievement was created) if a hunter drew and killed a Colorado Desert Big Horn Sheep that would qualify for the Co Big 9 providing the hunter already had the original 8 animals.
Shiras Moose was not added to the Colorado Big 9 until the early 1980's.
Of course, if you kill both a moose and a desert sheep along with the original 8 species the hunter would qualify for the Colorado Big 10 achievement award.
For a bow hunter to be recognized and enter their accomplishment, please write a letter / or email to the CBA Big Game Records Chairman: Dave Stone email@example.com
I will need the following: Name, age, and address of the hunter. Date each Colorado species was taken with bow and arrow.
For the last species taken, please list the 'approximate time' along with the date the animal was taken (in case of a draw the time will be the tie breaker for the award completion record number)
Please include a field (or best available) photograph(s) of the hunter with each species taken.
Big 9: * Meet all Big 8 requirements listed above; and, * Successfully take either a Shiras Moose or Desert Bighorn Sheep. Big 10: * Meet all Big 8 requirements listed above; and, * Successfully taken both a Shiras Moose and Desert Bighorn Sheep in either order.
You must be a valid CBA member in good standing to receive an award. Your (hunters) signature represents your (hunters) compliance with the rules of the program.
BIG GAME Trophy Display: This year in addition to the 2017 Big Game trophies, we are encouraging all CBA members to bring their 2015 and 2016 trophy mounts to the banquet. Especially if you did not have the chance to display your trophy at last year’s banquette due to the location or just not getting them back from the taxidermist in time. Let’s try to make this year’s banquette Big Game Trophy display one of the best ever! If you just want to display a mount, please contact: Jerald Rasmussen firstname.lastname@example.org Jerry will be coordinating the mount displays for this year’s banquet.
Jerry needs to know the type of mount:
Wall Mount: • Antler • Euro • Shoulder • Pedestal • Free Standing • Rug
Thank you, Dave Stone CBA Big Game Chairman / Membership Director
We are encouraging all the successful CBA bow hunters to bring their big game mount(s) to the Banquet in Fort Collins on March 16-17th, 2018. For your trophy to be eligible and entered into the CBA Big Game Awards program (top three scoring animals in each P&Y category) for Colorado, you will need to have your animal measured by either a Pope & Young or Boone & Crockett official measurer.
P & Y’s web page for measurers (a list is attached below too): https://pope-young.org/records/find_measurer.asp
B & C web page for measurers: http://www.boonerockett.org/bgRecords/records_omlist.asp?area=bgRecords
The official Colorado measurers are listed below. Some P&Y measurers require the animal to be entered and will only complete the scoring of your trophy if you are going to have it registered with P&Y.
The CBA is compiling a list of Official Measurers for our members who do not have this requirement. The following P&Y measures we have contacted do not have this requirement: Joe Bradley, Tim Bradley, Barry Smith, Grant Siggins, Ron Rockwell and Ron Sniff.
Note that Pope and Young requires the following to measure: 1. The head or skull must dry for 60 days at room temperature, for skulls this 60 day s period starts once the skull has been cleaned. 2. A Fair chase Affidavit printed on one sheet of paper (front and back) that is filled out signed and witnessed. Has to be original and not a copy. 3. First page of the score form with all the information at the bottom of the score form filled out (hunters name, address, date of kill, county of kill, state of kill, Email address, phone number etc.). 4. Three photos of the antlers or skull (right side, left side and front or top for skulls) 5. A field photo of the hunter with the animal if they have it 6. P&Y requires a check or cash for the entry fee $35.00 in case it meets the min score for entry.
Dave Stone is Chair of the Big Game Awards program. He will need all official measurement documents by February 24th, 2018. This is a strict deadline and due date to allow time to complete the awards selection, order and validate plaques, and create the Big Game awards presentation. Please see his except on the CBA Awards Program for the 2017-18 Banquet and registration form in this magazine.
