About SCI Record Book
The Largest Record Keeping System in the World
Record Books are considered to be the epitome of encyclopedias of big game animals and may be purchased individually. The SCI Record Book of Big Game Animals uses SCI’s unique all-inclusive record keeping system, the most used system in the world, to document our hunting heritage. The scoring system recognizes typical and non-typical animals and both free range and estate taken animals. No deductions are enforced penalizing animals for asymmetry in the SCI scoring system.

Importing Trophies into the U.S.
Reducing the regulatory burdens to importing hunting trophies into the United States is one of SCI’s top priorities. SCI works with both the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) and through the U.N. Convention on the International Trade of Endangered Species (CITES) to reduce these burdens. Read Trophy Importation Regulations in the Advocacy section of this website.
