To enter a turkey in the records program you must have it officially weighed. Weigh the turkey whole at an official State of Vermont Big Game Check Station. Have the weigh station fill out and sign a Vermont Big Game Trophy Club "Turkey Entry Form" (green card). Save the beard and spurs for measuring by an official measurer of the Vermont Big Game Trophy Club. Contact us for the name of the nearest official measurer. After measuring, send in the weight card,the score sheet, and the 15.00 entry fee.
