    Boone and Crockett Says the Use of Smart Riflescopes, GPS-Enabled Tech, and Trail Cams That Transmit Images In Real Time Isn’t Fair Chase

    Trophy animals taken with any of these technologies are no longer eligible for the record book. Here's why B&C is cracking down:

    @bfd136, to me this is more if you want a B&C bragging rights award, you have to play by their rules.  Otherwise, go have fun as long as it is legal where you live.  Idaho doesn't allow electronics for the most part for big game hunting, like mentioned above, so if you don't want to play by Idaho's F&G laws, then go to another park to play.

    Curious to see how they enforce it or prove it. But hunting over a non native food plot in an enclosed blind is fair hunting.

    Never understand these rules…. if it is something that will help   If the scope will help someone make a more accurate shot then so be it, though these scopes still don't help with windage.  

    Like many hear, they have all seen the people that will shoot multiple times at ranges they shouldn't…. so you still have the human error to take into account.

    Not a fan of trophy hunting anyway, but that is just me.  If that is what others want to do, as long as it is within their local laws, then have fun.  I am in no position to tell them they cant, and neither is anyone else for that matter.

    Trophy "hunting" in general is just another excuse for man child to broadcast inadequate member size by flashing money and size of the racks. Like using a guide or bait is fair chase, what's the point of killing best breeders? None besides aphrodisiac. I say let them use whatever, it's vain to begin with. Faster all the "trophies" are gone faster this nonsense can go away!

    Well, I use all of the above, but I don't really think B&C is interested in the size of the rats I shoot in my backyard!

    So, if you want B&C recognition you have to play by their rules. Don’t care if you agree or not, its their game. No different than following the target shooting rules. If you want the recognition, then you have to abide. 

    Then on the trophy hunter comments, really? Same could be said about almost any discipline of shooting or owning a truck or car or house, hell the same can even be said of a cowboy hat. 

    Ride your own ride, let me ride mine. In other words, do your own thing, let other folks do theirs.

    No. 1. If you're NOT a hunter, exit this conversation.

    No. 2. What is a trophy? Your first deer is a trophy…buck or doe. You decide and call it what you want. Leave others alone. Hunters calling other hunters names hurts all hunting.

    No. 3. If you're NOT A HUNTER, exit this conversation.

    No. 4. If you want in the BC record book, you play by their rules… period. 

    No. 5. Humans are competitive by nature. IN ALL ASPECTS OF HUMAN ACTIVITY. We're greedy, jealous, ambitious, and all the other bad things. You are not going to change human nature. Haven't you hippies learned that yet? How's that 'Make Love Not War' thing working out?

    No. 6. If you're not a hunter, EXIT THIS CONVERSATION.

    I didn’t really see anyone down on hunting, just means and methods and way of scoring/determining trophy status. 

    B&C never really did interest me, but I can see how they are trying to level the playing field.

     You slander all who enter a trophy in BC then post pictures make videos etc of any and everything  you kill in your back yard. How is it  the hypocrisy of that escapes you?
