In the right parts of south texas they grow huge also.. seen some from Duval Co. that were giants

few spots on the Trinity river will push some big bodied deer out

As rule the extreme northern Panhandle will have larger bodied bucks on average, but parts of the Golden Triangle area can have very large bodied bucks on well managed ranches in very wet years. I have seen 219-220 lb field dressed bucks come out of that area in those years.

The deer up there gorge on wheat and corn - it's all cultivation.

I'm from Savannah, the largest doe I ever killed was 178#, I have also killed trash bucks over 200# but then again that's not in Texas so it don't really help the thread. However I now run a ranch outside of Del Rio and feed protein year around and only occasionally push a mature buck to 200 on a good year.
