Is This The World Record Doe?

December 10, 2008
Is This The World Record Doe? - 5

Doe
Longtime friend Mike Pearce's outdoor page for the Wichita Eagle (www.kansas.com/outdoors) is always on my reading list—especially during deer season. Mike does a great job of staying on top of the Kansas big-buck scene, but recently reported on a 27-pointer that just might be the biggest-racked doe that anyone has ever seen.

Mike Smith of Clay Center, Kansas shot the gnarly horned deer on opening day of the Kansas firearms season last week and got the surprise of his life when he went to load the deer into his truck—it was missing a couple of parts. Like most antlered does, this deer's rack is covered in velvet and, well, a bit ugly. The doe grosses 179 and will likely net somewhere near 164. Although there is no official record-keeping system for does, the only other notable doe rack grossed about 155.

My Father took a huge doe several years ago. When they hung her from the rafters in a garage, her front quarters touched the floor. The small town locker (South Dakota/Iowa border) said it was bigger than any 5-point(5X5) buck they had ever processed or seen. She had no rack, however. He put her down because a fellow first time hunter grazed her knee and gave her a slight limp. He secured a heart shot with a .303 British at over a quarter-mile with a 4-power cheap scope. God rest his soul that man could shoot!!

I would try to shoot her right in the pussy too! Congratulations on the "big little doe" Apparently Kansas has some different genetics. At least you didn't have to use your buck tag on her did you?

Here in Mn if the deer has an antler over 3" it has to be tagged as a buck. So unless that is different in Kansas...I would still put my buck tag on a 170" doe :D
