The Morgan Score is New Zealand’s first trophy scoring system for Wild Cats. It is loosely based on the Douglas Score for Antlered Game, the Boone & Crocket Score and the Pope & Young Score.
We are still seeking sponsors for the Morgan Score winner, so if you care about the environment and would like to sponsor the score please email us.
Wild Cats are a destructive menace in the New Zealand outdoors, and only one politician has ever been brave enough to tell the truth about them. That man is Gareth Morgan, and this is why we have named the Morgan Score after a politician with the rare ability to tell the truth about difficult issues.
