2013 Trophy Awards


For 2013, both North American Summit Awards categories resulted in a tie. James Brogan's amazing Rocky Mountain bighorn brought him the honor (L) while Michael J Carpinito's Desert Ram (R) gave him equal share of the 2013 Bouchard Summit Ram Award for rifle taken rams.  Presenting the awards are GSCO board members Keith Hite (far left) and Mark Hampton (far right).
Also resulting in a tie, the 2013 Frost-Hoffman Summit Award for archery taken rams was split by Jim Hens (L) for his huge Stone sheep and long-time Yukon outfitter Dan Reynolds (R) for his amazing Dall sheep.  Award namesakes Jack Frost (far left) and Tom Hoffman (far right) presented the awards.  Jim Hens is joined on stage by guide Dustin Roe (near left).
Both international Summit Award winners were all smiles when recognized for their outstanding accomplishments. Richard Sand (L) was awarded the first-ever Golabchi International Sheep Award for his tremendous Hangai Argali while Troy Sheldon (R) received the Donald Cox International Capra Award for his fantastic American mountain goat.
