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.

    Way to go! It’s about time women got the respect they deserve in all areas of hunting. I hunt whitetails every year during gun season and my husband is afraid of guns. I have taught my two oldest sons to hunt and about gun safety all their lives because that’s what my mom taught me…………………….

  9. Cathy Smith says:

    That is a great Whitetail. Congratulations! This photo should be prominently displayed. The inclusion of women in hunting is obviously a good thing. I have gone hunting with my husband but we have never caught such a great specimen.

    congradulations! That is one big buck, although I’ve only had the opportunity to hunt mule deer. I sure wouldn’t mind that o’l gal showing me few tricks about whitetail hunting. All I can say her husband is a lucky guy for her particapating in this great sport that we all love. where’s the rest of all you girls???

  12. Alan Druckemiller says:

    Nice Buck! I’ve seen a couple close to that here in central Iowa but not that big. Folks, dont rule out Soutern Indiana. I was there all last week and saw alot of big bucks! My brother took a big 10.

  13. Zach says:

    Great deer. I think more women should hunt.

  14. Andy says:

    very nice buck, but its not as impressive looking as the one that was taken in northern minnesota, becker county, detroit lakes area. or the bernu buck of 2005 from new york mills minnesota. were are the pics from these massive bucks????

  15. Tyson says:

    Maybe my girlfriend will hunt after seeing that monster!

  16. Mary says:

    way to go , very , very nice buck,

  17. Matt says:

    This comment is for Andy. Don’t belittle Debs deer by saying it’s not as impressive as a couple other deer taken in Minnesota. Of course we all know there have been bigger deer taken than this one. But that doesn’t change the fact that this deer was taken with a bow and arrow. And is the best taken by a women.

    Great deer, Deb.

  18. Steven Griffith says:

    What a great deer! Congratulations Mrs. Luzinski. I live in South Carolina. We don’t have deer no where close to your big buck. Someone up north please invite me to hunt–Thanks!!
