A little about us

We are focused on promoting ethical fair chase hunting in the state of Nevada. And, educating the public on conservation and benefits of trophy hunting. Establish and maintain an accurate biological data base for sportsmen and sportswomen, range managers, wildlife biologists, and interested parties, by producing annually updated permanent records of big game trophies in Nevada. The committee was formed in 1982, produced the first edition in 1985 and the program's success lead to publishing the book every five years from that point on.
