Kansas Teen Harvests World-Record Whitetail Deer

14-year-old Paslie Werth of Cimarron, Kansas can now say she owns a deer hunting world record after harvesting a 42-point rack that has been certified as the largest non-typical whitetail in the world taken by a female, according to Boone and Crockett certification.

“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,” Paslie’s father, Kurt, told KSNW.

“When we got the score, it was hard to wrap around because none of us guessed it to be that much. And it was just very surprising, and I kinda couldn’t believe it,” Paslie told the TV station. “The trail camera pictures that we got did not do it justice.

“When we walked up to him, and we seen how big he really was that night, it was unbelievable how many points he had,” dad added.

Paslie’s non-typical whitetail by the numbers:

• Gross green score of 282 6/8 inches

• 42 scorable points

• Circumference measurements of over 7 1/2 inches

• Net score of 271 4/8 inches

The world record for non-typical whitetail by either sex was set in 1981 in St. Louis County, Missouri under unique circumstances, according to Boone and Crockett’s research. Hunter David Beckman alerted a Missouri conservation agent to a massive whitetail that was dead on private property.

“Agent Helland obtained permission to recover the carcass. With the help of friends, he skinned the deer and removed the rack, which weighed more than 11 pounds,” Boone and Crockett reports. “It was estimated that the deer weighed over 250 pounds. Examination of the teeth revealed that the monstrously large deer was only 5-1/2 years old. Cause of death could not be determined, but it did not appear to have been shot.”

Everyone involved agreed that the Missouri Department of Conservation would hold the world record that still stands today.

A week ago today we were able to get Paslie's deer rack officially Boone & Crockett scored. The 42 point, scored 271…
