I killed 2 last year that would qualify and didn't get a single one registered lol. I'd go just to shoot the breeze with you but I've got a tournament this weekend.

Post a pic of your deer. I have one from region 7 but it's 250 miles one way to go to Lufkin so I am skipping it.

It's a good time. I haven't been since the late 90's but remember it being really cool.

It used to be great until they let all the breeder deer in.

Really? That's unfortunate. I was under the impression it was all low fence deer. My lease manager wanted me to enter mine from 2 years ago. 155" eleven point, but his net score would have been high 140's, maybe right at 150, so I didn't enter it

No. It's always included high fenced deer. I think they finally changed it a couple of years ago with separate divisions for high and low fence.

It's basically going the way of all the deer contests. Native deer can't compete with breeder deer. Allowing so called "pasture born" deer has ruined it for everybody.

This year in region 5,6,7 there were 284 deer entered and of those deer only 14 came from a high fenced property which may or may not be "breeder deer". The largest of these only scoring 168. They separate out all high fenced deer but for these regions native low fence deer rule!

They also don't allow breeder deer to be entered

Well, now I kinda wished I would have entered mine. I didn't think a high 140's net would have been anything special. Maybe I was wrong

I just checked TBGA website. For 2014, I would have had a good chance of finishing 1st, at least top 3 net. Dang it

I'll have the big 7 point with trash if anyone sees me. Come say hi. I don't have him mounted yet, just the horns.

It's more so just an award and certificate vs a contest I would say. I can't wait to see all the quality east Texas deer there. This is my first one to receive. My dad has two but we never made a banquet so I'm excited. Like I need anymore reason to get amped up for 2017-18 year lol

Yep, high fence and low fence deer are separated now. We don't let breeder deer in the program.

My son and I will be there. My Nacogdoches county 8-point qualified and my son had his first harvest this past season. It's fun to eat BBQ and see a bunch of nice deer.

Really? So what is a "pasture born" deer. What defines the difference between a pasture and a pen? If I have a 50 acre high fenced "pasture" does that qualify?

Pasture born deer that aren't tagged or tattooed would qualify, yes. We do our best to maintain the integrity of the program.

What defines the difference between a pasture and a pen? Can a high fenced pasture be 10 acres?

I think what he means is that high fenced raised or bred bucks, once let loose on an open fence property, are considered pasture bucks. I think, but I don't want to speak for TBGA

The rule currently is that a liberated deer cannot be entered into the program.

So if I release a bred doe in a 10 acre high fenced pasture. She has a buck fawn that is pasture born. That buck would qualify?
