I've seen alot of big deer (over 200") being brought in to los cazadores, but all were pen raised deer that had been released so I don't count those.


Biggest deer that I've seen in person was a mule deer buck that weighed over 300lbs that grossed 211"


For it is not the quarry that we truly seek, but the adventure.

I saw a low 190s Brooks County buck a few years back. Amazing mass. Wish I still had the pic.

Brooks county must hold some big deer.

I know of several 190s that have been shot there

Biggest buck I have ever seen alive or dead. It was hit by a truck here in north TX. I got to see it about 1 hour after it was hit and the pics do not do this buck justice! I don't believe that the buck has ever been scored.

Wasn't the biggest rack I ever collected, but I shot a buck sometime back in the 80's (the head is over the fireplace now) that was too big to move. It was over in Louisiana, where I grew up. Probably the biggest and prettiest buck I ever saw. I grabbed him by the antlers to drag him over to the pipeline right of way, and I couldn't move him, not one inch. I went for help. Forget using the ATV. Had to get Dad's truck and a few able bodied helpers.

As a youngster doing the rounds at the Muy Grande and Cola Blanca contests, I saw handfuls of 180+ dead typicals and 200+ dead non-typicals..

Years and years ago, we hunted Mason Co. Around the late 70's/early 80's when you started having to take deer in to a cooler, there were these deer every year, probably 180's or so. Supposedly came from Blue Mountain area, but we hunted close and never saw anything remotely close

About a month ago I saw a low 190 class deer that was taken from low fence. The guy shot it in old Mexico. It was something like a 10k or 15k acre ranch. He told me the official score but I can't remember exactly what it was and I didn't take any pics.
