Hank killed a big buck on there. I wondered what happened to Wascom, I see he now owns property in Cotulla. Must be nice. Good for him

I watched that episode.

That Cactus Jack ranch is an impressive place. I've seen pics of some of the bucks they have killed.

I believe that ranch was high fence for many years. He lowered one side to qualify it for low fence so his deer could make the "Book". That's what I heard. Don't know if it is true or not.

My uncle owned the cactus jack ranch. He high fenced the original 5000 acres around 1991-94. The added on 2000 more acres that was fenced separate. Great ranch with native deer!

What was the name of the show?

There is actually another ranch between the CJ and Georges place. I believe the peloncillo is on the back side. Encinals place doesn't border the ranch but is fairly close

I didn't know either. A Google stalker search shows that he is President of ExxonMobil. The "Images" tab shows him with some monster deer.

Always wondered what his story was. Have seen his pictures for years in Los Cazadores with giant whitetails. Every year he post something always big.

We were scoring my Junco 181 back in 2007 at the check in station. Jerry walked up and congratulated me on my deer. He started to walk away when someone mentioned that it was the biggest archery buck taken off the Junco to date. He turned around and said. "I need to start bowhunting". I got a chuckle out of that.

I've been on the place one time, not to hunt, EOG Resources has the old Garner ranch leased, has a bunch of gas wells on it. Does have some phenomenal native genetics, no other genetics brought in. It is true the place was completely high fenced and heard Mr. Wascom did tear down a section of it to "consider" it a low fence property. The previous owners never publicly shown what they have harvested off the place. Not only huge antlers but the body size on some of these animals was very impressive.

Yep, from what I remember, they killed a 195" buck the year after the fence was up. They didn't advertise the deer at the contests. They have killed some monster native bucks like Marko has. My cousin,Clayton, did a great job managing the ranch for big bucks without adding anything but protein and food plots.

That is a very nice ranch in prime deer habitat.
