Recording Arizona's Archery Big Game Trophies bowhunting in arizona
cochise award

Recognizing the need to honor a bowhunter who has gone beyond the element of luck, which is present to some extent in every hunt, the Committee established the Cochise Award.

This award will recognize the bowhunter who has become skillful in hunting a variety of species and who collected seven of the sixteen animals eligible for the program, as outlined in the By-Laws.  One of the seven approved animals must be a big game animal that meets or exceeds the minimum score for that species.  Only two of the seven species required may be from the small game predator category (Bobcat, Coyote, Fox).

 

Arizona residents are fortunate to have many different animals to hunt, many of which are among the best in the nation.  Some of the Arizona species pursued by bowhunters cannot be measured using the official scoring system of the Boone & Crockett Club; yet, these animals are also trophies to most bowhunters.  Therefore, the Committee included the small game predators; bobcat, coyote and fox in the Cochise Award program.  We believe that a bowhunter who has acquired the skill and knowledge, and who has spent the time and effort to collect many different species, deserves to be recognized.

 

We chose the name, Cochise, out of respect for our bowhunting ancestors, the early residents of our state.  Cochise, a famous Chief, was respected for his fierce courage and determination.  Certainly the bowhunter who receives this award, must also have the same determination!
