The International Council For Game & Wildlife Conservation (CIC) United Kingdom Trophy Evaluation Board (UKTEB) is the only organisation authorised to offer a service to estate owners, deer managers, stalkers and hunters to measure deer antlers and other trophies in accordance with CIC rules.
Trophy measuring as we know it in the UK started in the 1970s when Mr Richard Prior joined the Game Conservancy and introduced trophy measuring at the CLA Game Fair to add interest to the stand. In 1997, the CIC decided to form national trophy commissions, accredited and recognised, and CIC trophy measuring was offered to the stalking public. The United Kingdom Trophy Evaluation Board assess trophies from the UK and around the world under the control of the U.K. Delegation of the CIC.
It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of our friend and fellow CIC UKTEB measurer Charles Fenn.
"The sudden death on October 23rd of Charles Fenn, a CIC Judge, highly respected and renowned for his meticulous trophy measuring skills, will have come as a shock to all those who have known and worked with him over the years, whether at game fairs or in the field. His particular interest in African species led to his appointment as a Senior International Trophy Judge where his contribution to the CIC's International Board meetings was well received and respected by members. A brilliant stalker with a wide and expansive knowledge of deer, particularly roe and sika, Charles frequently mentored and assisted newcomers to stalking and was always willing to offer advice and help. Always cheerful and ready to look on the positive side of life, he was not only an outstanding shot with a rifle, but could more than hold his own with a shotgun. Only a few days before his unexpected death he had enjoyed a day's fruitful driven pheasant shooting on the small shoot which he had helped to establish with his great friend for over 40 years, Tony Jackson."
