Are women dominating the hunting field or what? In 2004 Kathy Keene bagged a monster 291 gross non-typical mule deer in Wyoming, being the second largest non-typical mule deer taken by a woman. In January of 2006, Myra Smith headed down to Mexico and brought home what is now the biggest typical mule deer taken by a woman scoring 210 net typical.
There is now word of a great whitetail buck taken by a 38-year old mother of two in Minnesota. Furthermore, she did it with a bow and arrow. Deb Luzinski of Woodbury shot the 24-point buck on Friday at Bald Eagle-Otter Lakes Regional Park in White Bear Township. The green score on this great buck is 223 4/8 inches P&Y and could rank within the top three for the state, but more importantly it could be the largest taken by a woman for Minnesota.
Luzinski is a landscaper who has been archery hunting for 15 years. She is a member of the Metro Bowhunters Resource Base, which helps control deer populations.
