The president and CEO of Tri-National, Inc., Robert Rogulic oversees all operations at his transportation company. An avid hunter in his free time, he maintains active membership with the Boone and Crockett Club. Robert Rogulic holds a record with the club for one of the biggest antelopes ever shot.

For more than 120 years, the Boone and Crockett Club has been promoting wildlife management and conservation and maintaining big-game records. According to the organization, big-game records can only be achieved within certain boundaries in North America. Most of these boundaries are located in the United States, but cougars, whitetail deer, jaguar, walrus, and polar bear boundaries do extend into Mexico and Canada.

Over the years, the club’s Records Committee has defined these boundaries based on specific criteria. First, each area must be an extensive geographical space where specific animals are found. Second, these animals must be found in good numbers, and third, the area must have suitable boundaries that can be drawn. Finally, game departments must accept each class of animals proposed for the areas they manage. As knowledge of animal distribution between these areas change, the Records Committee redraws boundary lines.
