Tucson, AZ -(AmmoLand.com)- For the first time, the SCI Record Book Department is accepting photo entries of game birds from around the world.
Starting June 1st, 2016 SCI members can submit photos of game birds they have taken to be recorded for the Game Birds of the World program. This is a standalone platform that does not intermix with their existing Big Game Species Awards.
The purpose of the new Game Birds of the World is to bring greater attention to the wonderful bird hunting opportunities throughout the globe and provide additional goals for hunters who have either completed their big game hunting or are looking for another hunt to supplement their big game hunts. The Record Book Department accepts birds from their extensive Game Birds list as photo entries only; there are no measurements of these birds.
In addition to recording each member’s game bird species, the Record Book Department also launched Grand Slams recognizing each wingshooter’s accomplishments. The North America Grand Slams, which include both upland game and waterfowl Grand Slams, are available now. Grand Slams from other continents will be released systematically in the future.
