Readers will be delighted to read about Troy Sheldon s new World s Record Rocky Mountain goat taken in British Columbia s Stikine River Drainage during the 2011 season. The billy was taken on the eighth day of Sheldon s expedition with his long-time hunting friend Carey Renner. Sheldon was guided by well-known mountain hunting authority Heidi Gutfrucht. Other top trophies featured in Back from the Hunt include: Robert T. Christian s black bear taken in Monroe County, Pennsylvania, which is the highest scoring black bear ever harvested by a hunter. Kevin S. Petrzilka s monster typical whitetail scoring over 200 points taken in Nebraska in 2010. Mike Gallo s Top 5 pronghorn taken during the 2011 season in New Mexico. As the recognized authority in North American big-game records keeping, no B&C records book would be complete without a detailed listing of big-game trophies including date, location, final score, gross score, along with other interesting measurements for each trophy. More than 100 B&W field photographs are interspersed with trophy listings and a special full-color section includes 60 of the best field photographs the Club has seen over the past three years.
