Trophy Regulations General
  • Game must be legally taken and tagged (where applicable) by the SBPA member in good standing.

  • Fair Chase Rules apply (re: Saskatchewan Wildlife Federation scoring affidavit)

  • Species must be legally hunted within the boundaries of Saskatchewan

  • An affidavit stating the species of animal/bird, date and zone of kill signed by 3 current SBPA members will normally be deemed sufficient proof of kill. However, the SBPA reserves the right to request additional proof until the SBPA is satisfied that the animal or bird was taken within the guideline's of the scoring system outlined below.

  • Entries to be delivered to the SBPA address not later than 31 December of the year following the close of the hunting seasons.

Big Game
  • Muzzle loading rifle only.

  • Rack (or head) to be measured by an accredited measurer.

  • The highest scoring rack/head in each event shall determine the winner.

  • Non-typical are those racks with 10% or more non-typical points.

  • Proof of kill indicated by a copy of the validated tag (or copy of the habitat permit and date of kill )

The big game scoring system is based on the Boone and Crocket System and adapted for Muzzle Loaders. Events are for each species of big game legally hunted in Saskatchewan, plus special events for non-typical white tail and mule deer. In addition to each species, a Hunter of the Year event has been established, where a hunter is awarded a number of points for each animal taken. The scoring system for Hunter of the Year is as follows:

  

White-tailed Deer ............. 100 + score over 135

Non-typical ............. ……..100 + score over 155

Mule Deer ......................... 125 + score over 145

Non-typical .............. …….125 + score over 170

Elk..................................... 150 + score over 275

Moose ............................... 125 + score over 150

Bear................................... 75 plus 1 pt for each 1/16” over 16”


Antelope ........................... 125 +score over 45

 

 

One does not have to exceed the minimum rack size in order to qualify for any specific species. There are trophies for the largest of each of the above species plus Hunter of the Year award for the hunter who accumulates the most points using the above system. Entries must be submitted to the SBPA with proof of kill and measures recorded by an official measurer (Contact your local SWF for a list of accredited measurers in your area).
