Oh Canada! 226-Inch Saskatchewan Sheds

A three-day shed hunt in north central Saskatchewan produces a trophy shed find of a lifetime.

It takes a while for Mother Nature to thaw the snow and ice in north central Saskatchewan. While many U.S. hunters this time of the year have finished their shed hunting and have picked up the turkey gun, our whitetail hunting brethren to the north are often times just getting their first chance to hunt for some antlered bone.

This was the case with three dedicated shed hunters -- Dylan Shewchuk (age 26) and brothers Dallas (26) and Bret Morrison (24) -- who ventured from their homes in Shellbrook, Saskatchewan to a wooded area just north of Prince Albert National Park to look for sheds.

"We go out as much as we can, there's been so much snow, all the sheds have been covered up. When the snow goes down, we go out in the bush. Hitting the trails hard," reported Shewchuk.

Their plan of attack was to identify well-used deer trails and start looking for antler tips and tines that would be visible through the melting snow.

While on a trail, Dallas spotted a small four point that looked to be a year old and headed over to pick it up when something caught his eye -- a massive non-typical shed...with its match laying right next to it.

Once back in Shellbrook, the trio had the set scored by an official B&C measurer and the sheds rang in at 226-inches non-typical. A true trophy find indeed.

The good news is that the dedicated whitetail hunters have permission to hunt the area in the fall.

"Nobody has ever seen this deer before, at least that we're aware of. We have permission to hunt the area, but had never spent much time up here. That changed, however, the day we found these sheds. We're hanging trail cameras and going to try and get this deer on the ground," said Shewchuk.

After looking at those sheds, no one can blame them for wanting to do just that.
