One day after the opening of youth deer season, 14-year-old Paslie Werth shot a massive buck while hunting with her dad. The shot happened on September 6th, but there is a mandatory 60-day drying period before the rack can be officially measured. The measurement is done according to the Boone and Crockett scoring system.
The Boone and Crockett scoring system is a method used to evaluate and measure the antlers, horns, and other headgear of big game animals, primarily focusing on their size, symmetry, and mass. The system was established by the Boone and Crockett Club, a conservation organization founded in 1887. The scoring system aims to recognize exceptional specimens of North American big game and promote conservation efforts.
The 42-scoreable point buck initially tallied a gross green score of 282 6/8 inches, displaying 44 total points unofficially. The official score was 283 inches and displayed a circumference of over 7 1/2 inches with a net score of 271 4/8 inches.
Boone and Crockett Net Scores
The Boone and Crockett net scores this as the largest non-typical whitetail taken by a female in the entire world. The previous record was set in 1997 by Jamie Remmers with a buck that was 14 inches less than this massive beast. You can find the Kansas Top 20 Deer Records here.
Her dad is very proud of her – after he passed on this buck last year. This buck has been closely watched for the last three years on their family’s land in Kiowa County, Kansas. It should also be noted that this was not Paslie’s first time hunting. She’s been a card-carrying hunter for four years now, and every year she’s gotten a bigger buck. Not sure how she’s going to top this one next year.
Paslie, congrats on your magnificent buck! Wishing you luck on your upcoming hunts!
