BBS is not a contest and any animal taken in any year will be considered for entry. If the animal's score qualifies for Pope and Young Club or Boone and Crockett Club, our official measurers will facilitate their entry - additional information and fees required.
An absolute giant buck named “TNT” was harvested 01/10/21 in QA county by Troy N. Thomas with a shotgun. The five by five frame carries amazing mass and has three additional non typical tines. BBS officials put together a “green” score on this world class animal. The massive rack carries 204 plus gross inches! We are very happy for Troy and excited to add this monster to our state records after the sixty day drying period.

MISSION STATEMENT
The Mission of Bucks-Bears-Stags is to celebrate the long-honored heritage of recreational hunting in Maryland. Excellent habitat, fertile soil and science-based wildlife management have given us a world-class White-tailed Deer herd, a robust and expanding American Black Bear population and a unique "Maryland-only" residency of Sika Deer. We celebrate the success of Maryland's wildlife management by acknowledging the successful hunters and by honoring the finest examples of those legally harvested Maryland bucks, bears and stags.
We also believe that the future of hunting rests with the young. We encourage Youth participation and the continued participation of men, women and seniors in our noble pursuit of wild game.
We also believe it is our Mission to support the non-profit organizations that promote and protect our publicly-owned sustainable resources.
