The drought didnít have much impact on this impressive buck. John Thorne took this trophy with his bow on Oct. 13 during a TPWD drawn public hunt at the Richland Creek WMA. The deer was 7 Ĺ years old and scored 177 points, the biggest ever on Richland Creek WMA. Archery season drawn public hunts and early youth hunts on other WMAs around the state are seeing above average harvest success rates despite dry conditions and hunters are reporting seeing a lot of deer.

That's an awesome deer. Kinda interesting. One of the game wardens in the counties around RC was named John Thorne.
I haven't seen him in a long time but that doesn't look like him.

weird. It's almost like deer get big if you don't shoot them at 3 years old.

Awesome buck!! And on public land. Too many people complain about the TPWD, but they are providing great opportunities for a lot of folks!
Great job John Thorne and also all those at the TPWD that help make this possible...

I had heard it was a GW that killed it so I guess it's him.

My apologies, folks. I guess it looked like I was writing that info, but I wasn't at all. I was just quoting TPWD, and put the link in there. Just passing along info. Sorry if anyone was confused by the way I posted it. Wasn't my intent. I should have put quotations around it, and didn't.

My TPWD posts are just copies from their site that I'm just sharing on here for folks that don't follow the TPWD facebook page.

Again, sorry for any confusion. My bad. I'll try to do better in the future.

JJ
