See the State’s Top Texas Big Game Awards Entries
The Texas Big Game Awards (TBGA), a partnership of Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) and the Texas Wildlife Association (TWA), is the leader in recognizing the contributions that landowners, land managers and responsible hunters make to managing and conserving wildlife and wildlife habitat on Texas’ private lands. The top 15 big game animals taken this past season will be on display and recognized during the 2010 Statewide TBGA Sportsman’s Celebration held annually in conjunction with TWA’s Annual Convention.
The top three big game animals in the following categories will be on display: typical whitetail, non-typical whitetail, typical mule deer, non-typical mule deer, and pronghorn antelope. Also being awarded will be 13 Texas Slam recipients. The Texas Slam is an award given to those hunters, and landowners, who harvest or produce all three qualifying TBGA species in one season, meeting the minimum scoring requirements.
Also have the chance to see the new number two all-time typical mule deer taken by Rick Merrit in Gaines County net scoring 193 2/8 B&C. And the new number two all-time pronghorn antelope taken in Hudspeth County net scoring 88 4/8 B&C!
