A Non Hill Country Deer

On his family’s low fence, ranch in Lamar County, in far, northeast Texas, this 14 year old, hunter, who has been hunting since he was 8, bagged this nice buck. Before field dressing, the buck weighed 180 pounds and scored a whopping 168-7/8 B&C points.
My Daughter, Suzanne, who teaches in the North Lamar School District, where this young man attends school, sent me this picture and short story about this great deer that was shot in Lamar County. In most cases, you’d think that this deer would have been shot in the western part of our Texas hill country, or south Texas.
