Gold, Silver, Bronze & Honorable Mention Awards will be given, if applicable, for each category. Deadline for submittal is November 1, 2023.
To be considered for a Mountain Monarch Award, an SCI score sheet, WSF Hunt Report form, and a photograph which clearly shows the size of the animal must be submitted. The score must be certified by the hunter’s signature; it is desirable that an official SCI measurer also certify the score.
These awards will only be given for outstanding trophies. The International Awards Committee will, on a yearly basis, determine the minimum sizes to be considered. In general, an animal must be in the top 20 percent of animals harvested to be considered. If, in a given year, no animals of a category fall in the top 20 percent, no awards in that category may be given. In addition, the number of Honorable Mentions will be limited. In general, no more than three (3) Honorable Mentions per category will be awarded.
Timelines associates with Mountain Monarch Awards are as follows: The deadline for submittal is November 1, of each year. The animal must have been taken between August 30, 2020 - August 30, 2023. This timing allows for some delay after harvesting the animal to obtain a proper measurement.
As part of the Mountain Monarch Awards, any Caprinae taken that is truly exceptional, may qualify for a Mountain Monarch Award of Excellence.
