Records were made to be broken and this year started out with a record-breaking buck hitting the ground in Kansas. When pictures of the buck first surfaced you could tell it was big, and we thought it could be a state record. What we did not realize it would be a world record.
Kansas’s youth season opened on 5 September and 14-year-old Paisley Werth put down a monster. When first reported her buck had 40+ scorable points and green scored 282 6/8.
Buck Masters scored the buck and gave it a score of 283-0/8. It had scoreable points 42 Points and IrregularTotal Inches of 266-2/8. The buck entered the Buck Masters record book as the largest buck ever killed in the state of Kansas by a woman, the 4th largest rifle buck killed in the state of Kansas by anyone, the 6th largest buck in the state killed by “any weapon”, and the 11th largest Irregular buck killed by a rifle in the WORLD.
However, the state of Kansas uses the Boone and Crockett scoring system for official state records and we needed to wait the 60-day drying period for those results.
Last week Paisley’s buck was measured and her mother posted the score to Facebook.
A week ago today we were able to get Paslie’s deer rack officially Boone & Crockett scored. The 42 point, scored 271 4/8! It is now the top non-typical whitetail in the world, taken by a female. Thank you Aaron Baugh & Luke Kramer with Kansas Wildlife & Parks Dept.
What an incredible buck and amazing accomplishment. Congratulations on the world-record, it is going to take a lot to break this one. Here are some more pictures of her incredible buck.
