According to their website, the Boone and Crockett Club was founded by Theodore Roosevelt in 1887 as the first national organization to address the destruction of America’s wildlife natural resources and the habitats that support them. Of the many accomplishments the Club has contributed a few that stand out are; the establishment of our national forests and the National Forest Service; many national parks and the National Park Service; the national wildlife refuge system; the Bureau of Land Management, and U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service; structured hunting seasons and game laws; and the funding mechanisms for conservation including the Federal Duck Stamp and Wildlife Restoration Act (Pittman-Robertson).
