Prairie Post (East Edition) - - Saskatchew­an - CON­TRIB­UTED

On Oc­to­ber 1, 2018, Saskatchew­an Wildlife Fed­er­a­tion mem­ber, Den­nis Bennett, ar­rowed the deer of a life­time in the Arm River area of Saskatchew­an.

This Non-Typ­i­cal Mule Deer was panel mea­sured by of­fi­cial Henry Kelsey mea­sur­ers on Oc­to­ber 7/18 and scored 293 6/8. It has been de­clared a Henry Kelsey pro­vin­cial record, meet­ing the min­i­mum score of 200, and sur­pass­ing the pre­vi­ous pro­vin­cial HK record of 290 taken back in the 1920’s by Nel­son Clark.

Henry Kelsey and Pope & Young both use the Boone & Crock­ett scor­ing tech­nique, with the dif­fer­ence be­ing that Henry Kelsey uses the green score, whereas P&Y and B&C re­quire a 60-day dry­ing pe­riod. Pope & Young, which records an­i­mals taken by archery only, has de­clared Bennett’s deer a P&Y world record with a score of 291 1/8.

“Bennett’s Non-Typ­i­cal Mule Deer en­try now joins Milo Han­son’s Buck (White-tailed Deer) as an­other rec­og­nized world record har­vested from Saskatchew­an,” said War­ren Howse, SWF Henry Kelsey Chair. “It is in­dica­tive of the qual­ity of wildlife re­sources we cher­ish here in our prov­ince.”
