Ask Fish and Game

Q. I killed a bull elk this fall that I think might be a record. How do I go about having it measured?

A. First, have some patience. The measuring process cannot take place until the rack has dried for 60 days. All antlers will shrink slightly as they dry but do not try to stop that by refrigerating; only air drying at normal temperature is allowed. Then call Fish and Game at 208-334-3746 and we will send you a form (after all, what kind of a government agency would we be if we did not send you a form to fill out) and arrange for one of the people who measure for Boone and Crockett or Pope and Young to meet with you and your trophy.
