There’s an old saying in the lone star state that many native’s love to repeat, “Everything’s bigger in Texas”. Apparently this statement includes whitetail bucks too! Check out this marvel, a 300” monster buck! It could be the state’s NEW record deer! Could be!?
Deer hunter, Mark Barrett, of the Las Raicas Ranch downed what could become the all time leader in the Texas state record books earlier this archery season. The buck has a reported score of 311 4/8” green gross, while still in velvet. And don’t let the fact it was taken on a ranch fool you, the buck reportedly has no scientific influence at all. As Marko Barrett, son of Mark has stated, “the deer was a 100% native pasture deer that had not been manipulated in any way. He was a product of rain, protein, feed and patience.”
The staff here at Bowhunting.Com wishes to congratulate hunter, Mark Barrett, on what will certainly become the buck of a lifetime for him. Congratulations Mark, we look forward to hearing the news of your new record once the drying period has passed! Congrats!
