Big Game Records

The Louisiana Big Game Records Program documents all-time record white-tailed deer and wild turkey harvested in the state that meet or exceed minimum antler or spur measurements, respectively, as well as deer and turkeys that meet minimum recognition requirements over a three-year span. See minimum measurements below.

You must have measurements from a Boone and Crockett or LDWF-certified measurer to be eligible for recognition or a record. All entries must be submitted by a certified measurer on an official score sheet. LDWF only considers net scores for entry. LDWF measurers offer scoring upon request at no charge.
