Henry Kelsey Big Game Records

HK LogoSaskatchewan Henry Kelsey Big Game Records is the official records keeping system for Saskatchewan big game.  Henry Kelsey, with its own constitution and board of directors, is an ancillary body of the Saskatchewan Wildlife Federation.

Big game records keeping in Saskatchewan began in 1953 working in cooperation with the Boone and Crockett Club and using their system of scoring antlers, horns and skulls.  In 1967, the Big Game Records Committee adopted the name, Henry Kelsey Club, in honour of the famous Saskatchewan explorer and historian.  In the early 1990s, the name was changed again to Henry Kelsey Big Game Records.  Although Henry Kelsey records adopted the Boone and Crockett scoring system, there are two main differences:  entries for Henry Kelsey do not require a
sixty (60) day drying period and the minimum scores vary.

All Saskatchewan big game entries must be taken by a licensed hunter, under the rules of fair chase, meet minimum scores and be measured by an official Henry Kelsey measurer.  Awards are presented at the annual awards banquet.  A records book is published every five years and is available through the SWF Central Office.
