Finally Got Him Scored

Took this deer in the Texas panhadle on October 30th 2007. It was a 400 mile round trip to an offical P&Y scorer so it took a while. He ended up 227 5/8's gross and 222 6/8's net. The current state non-typical archery record is 184 5/8's. I'm still on cloud nine after nine months.

Xitnet....I still think that your buck is one of the best looking bucks in all of 2007 and ever for that matter. Great looking bruiser! Congrats on the score...but the real prize is that beauty of a buck.

D13R,
Would like to but it's about a 450 mile round trip for a B&C scorer. That's what I get for living in the middle of no-where. :)

Don't think I'll ever top this deer and that's okay.

Utodd,
Thank you. When I first posted this deer last fall, I remember you nice comments. Appreciate it.

No joke! In todays hunting world State records seem to be broken by inches or fractions of inches. Congrats on completely smashing the current record!!

Congrats XIT. I have spent quite a bit of time in the area north of where you took your buck (I probably don't live to far from you either), and haven't found anything even close. What a trophy to be proud of. I heard that you really put your time in over the years in that particular area.

Hopefully I will be able to find his brother or eldest son this year.

Once again, Congrats

Congrats on a great buck! That is an absolute HOG , and I can see how your on cloud 9, WOW! Last year we were headed home from the Dallas vs. Minnisota game in late Oct and saw a huge muley on the back of a trailer being pulled by a motorhome, I freaked out how big he was. TX does grow em big. Again, congrats on your monster and thanks for sharing it....NM

You have really got to give it up to the Land Owners in Texas on what they are accomplishing with the herds of deer on their property. More and more I am hearing of Monsters coming out of these Ranchs in say Kent County and the area around them. This may spark some negitive feedback, but to me it goes to show you how successful you can manage large Mule Deer when you stop trying to manage multiple herds on multiple ranges with one mass idea for all of them. Utah is at a major cross roads right now and I hope they make the right decision. I believe with the ease at which hunters can get in and out of Texas versus Mexico there will be a large swing in hunters choosing Texas over Sonora in the coming years. The score sheet says it all P&Y there was definitly no High Fences here. I Love it, Sweet buck and thanks for posting.
