Alaska Outdoor Journal Hall of Fame


Alaska is a Land of Giants. Whether its fish or game, Alaska makes a significant contribution to the record books....the IGFA, Boone & Crockett and Pope & Young. The state also maintains its own trophy fish program and a list of state records for the major fish species.

With so many trophies in Alaska, its not that hard to catch or shoot an exceptional take with some diligent pursuit. So the Alaska Outdoor Journal has established its own Hall of Fame.
