Linet Navarro of Chandler likes to bake cakes and kill deer.

On Nov. 8, Navarro killed the biggest whitetail of her life and perhaps the largest ever by a woman with a bow in Oklahoma. Her non-typical buck has a net green score of 175 2/8.

A check of the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation's Cy Curtis records — a listing of big deer killed by Oklahoma hunters — show that larger non-typical bucks have been killed by female hunters with a gun, although it appears none have with a bow.

The Wildlife Department does not distinguish between male and female hunters in the Cy Curtis record book.

“Maybe they should,” Navarro said. “They could start it this year.”

The Wildlife Department keeps records for both typical and non-typical racks. Basically, typical antlers are those that look normal, or the same on each side. Non-typical antlers are those that do not look normal and often have points going off in different directions.

Navarro, 33, killed the buck in Lincoln County on her and her husband's hunting lease.

“I have hunted hard for a long time to get a buck like that,” she said. “I got my first deer when I was 15. I got my second deer when I was 26. It was a pretty big gap but I had two kids in between.”

Navarro said neighbors had seen the buck on trail cameras but her first look at him was the day she shot him.

“He was highly coveted,” she said.
