Introducing the Super Slam of North American Big Game!

Grand Slam Club/Ovis recognizes some of the most important milestones in the hunting world. We initially began as the Grand Slam Club, and documented and registered the Grand Slam of North American Wild Sheep. To date, we have registered more than 1500 Grand Slams.

In early 1998, we introduced and began registering Ovis World Slams of the world's wild sheep. A hunter had to have taken 12 different sheep to reach this milestone. This was followed in early 2001 by the Capra World Slam, which of course was 12 of the world's wild goats. When a hunter has taken all three of these Slams, we recognize him or her as a Triple Slammer. To date, there are just over 100 people on the Triple Slam list.

To our knowledge, there are far fewer than 100 to have taken all 29 of the recognized North American big game trophies for the Super Slam. GSCO is currently accepting documentation from any and all who have reached this amazing lifetime achievement.

It is necessary to be a member of GSCO to document a Super Slam. We readily accept photos and reports of trophies leading to one's hope of eventually completing the Super Slam in a lifetime. Even if that milestone is never accomplished, just the goal of pursuing it is worthy of recognition. We will be printing all photos and reports in future issues of the SUPER SLAM publication.

Oh yes, to have completed a Super Slam, one has to have completed a Super Ten. Please see our web site, www.superslam.org, for full details on the Super Slam, Super Ten and our new GSCO Members-Only Super Slam Raffle.

Interesting concept on tracking the hunters that completed the slam. I'll be watching for more info.

The Super Slam publication went out to 45,000 people a little over two weeks ago. I just got mine in the mail Saturday October 10th. I hope that most of you members have gotten yours by now. We will be sending another in about two more weeks to GSCO members. It will be stuffed in with the Grand Slam/Ovis publications.

Remember that you can read it online at www.superslam.org

Question: Do the animals harvested need to meet trophy requirements? I figure that would be preferred but is it an actual requirement to achieve a 10 Slam or Super Slam? Also, is there a public or open database that lists the individuals who have achieved each slam and how (ie rifle, archery, slingshot)? Thanks guys!

Hi Stoney,
Sorry for the slow info, this forum isn't moderated well. There are no trophy score minimums required to submit animals toward any of the slams. The list(s) of those who have completed any of our recognized slams is periodically published in the Slam Quest magazine. Here is a link for submitting your trophies online submit trophy entries to GSCO
