Kansas man charged with poaching 14-point buck

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A Topeka man has been charged with poaching a 14-point whitetail buck that could have broken a state record that has stood for more than 35 years, authorities said.

David V. Kent was charged Feb. 1 in Osage County with eight counts related the Nov. 11 shooting of the deer, said Mike Miller, spokesman for the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism. The charges include hunting with an artificial light, hunting during a closed season, illegal hunting from a vehicle and use of an illegal caliber for deer hunting.

Kent was served court documents Monday. A message left at Kent’s business Friday was not returned.

The Wichita Eagle reported that the deer was unofficially scored at 198 7/8 inches of antler on the Boone & Crockett system. Although it was measured by an official scorer, it hadn’t met the waiting period of at least 60 days after the kill required to make the score official.

The state record for a typical whitetail deer shot with a gun is 198 2/8 by Dennis Finger in Nemaha County in 1974.

Kent brought the antlers, which he said came from a deer killed in northeast Kansas, to public attention at the Monster Buck Classic last month in Topeka. He was taken into custody and the antlers confiscated after he was recognized as having brought the largest typical antlers to the event.

Wildlife agents have compared the antlers to a photo that surfaced showing the buck was alive in the fall in Osage County. Agents believe the antlers came from the same deer.

This is the third Kansas buck with antlers that could qualify as a state record that isn’t officially recognized.

Guys this story gets a lot worse.
This guy was also in the truck when his brother was also caught shooting from the road & his brother killed a young kid, that was hunting on the far side of the field he shot into. His brother was sentenced to 3 years in jail.
These two poaching brothers also still work together, in their family business.
Very sad to see a family of poachers.
