Live Auction Items for the 2019 Banquet!


Stay tuned as we get the new merchandise uploaded

These 4 bronze sculptures were originally commissioned by the RMEF in 1985 to recreate the top four Boone and Crockett Club bulls as bookend sets.

They are one set all engraved with the limited edition number (514/750). These extremely rare and valuable bronzes were sold at RMEF banquets in the early days of the RMEF up through the early to mid-1990's. Each bronze was created by a different sculpture. We were extremely lucky to obtain these items from the estate of long time Maryland Chapter banquet attendee and former RMEF New Jersey Chapter Chair Anthony A. Previti. Upon his death Anthony also donated $500,000 to the RMEF.

A description of each bronze follows: Bronze of the # 1 Boone and Crockett elk by sculpture Allan Schwwindt, 1985, RMEF. This limited edition bronze elk was taken by local miner John Plute in 1899. This rack now resides in Crested Butte, Colorado at the Chamber of Commerce. The rack was scored at 442 3/8".

Bronze of the #2 Boone and Crockett elk by sculpture James Stafford, 1985, RMEF. This massive mount was presumed to have been harvested in the Cookstove Basin area of Wyoming's Bighorn Mountains. The elk was killed in 1890 and received a score of 441 6/8". The rack is now located at the Jackson Hole Museum.

Bronze of the #3 Boone and Crockett elk by Sculpture Dennis Jones, 1985, RMEF. This limited edition bronze depicts a massive bull elk killed in Panther River, Alberta in 1977. At the time this bull elk was the 3rd largest ever killed and had a score of 419 6/8".

Bronze of the # 4 Boone and Crockett elk by Sculptor Jack Logozzo, 1985, RMEF.
