IMARRON, Kan. — A Kansas teen has broken a world record for the largest largest non-typical whitetail ever shot by a female.
On Sept. 6, just one day after the opening of youth deer season, 14-year-old Paslie Werth from Cimarron harvested the massive buck while rifle hunting with her dad, Kurt. The record was recently certified after the mandatory 60-day drying period before the rack can be officially measured, KSNW reports.
“On Sunday, we hadn’t seen a deer yet, and then when we went out that evening, I had no idea he’d be there and stand up 25 yards away,” said Kurt.
The 42-scoreable point buck initially tallied an unofficial gross green score of 282 6/8 inches and displayed 44 total points.
