the only big deer in Texas are shot behind a high fence. Illinois has some great bucks, but they have nothing on Wisconsin. Hell, no state or province has nothing on Iowa. They got the #1 non typical and i predict us shotgunners or maybe a guy shooting stick n string will probably make a run for the #1 typical. we got sheds offa buck from last year.. he was around 205 last year....he was 4 1/2, maybe 5 1/2.....go figure

I would think Kansas, Illinois,Ohio,Kentucky, Wisconsin,Georgia(restocked with Wisconsin deer at turn of century), Missouri,Iowa,Nebraska,Alberta and Saskatchewan,Manitoba are all capable of producing both big bodied deer with trophy record book antlers.

FYI i read in i think it was DEER magazine and i think the Mathews Magazine that Wisconsin is the #1 Pope and Young state. that means its not texas. many big bucks get shot by gun hunters as well that would by far make P&Y. ok im done preaching

Texas vs. Wisconsin Top 5 Non-Typical, Pope and Young

Texas Wisconsin
1. 214 4/8 231 5/8
2. 187 1/8 230 2/8
3. 178 210 3/8
4. 174 7/8 209 3/8
5. 170 7/8 205

Looks like Texas ain't even in the same ballpark. Problem is Iowa and Illinios both beat Wisconsin on average. Therefore probably your best overall region to hunt a trophy buck would have to be the four corners of Minn, Iowa, Wis, Ill.

I guess my understanding is that they need to be at least Pope and Young caliber to be "record book bucks" (130 pts. minimum (correct me if I'm wrong) as Boone and Crockett needs a higher minimum score to qualify (170 pts?). Therefore by looking at the top Pope and Young scores (deer shot with a bow and arrow) you can get a pretty good idea of what kind of bucks are in what states.

Here are the top 5 typical Pope and Young for those two states:
Texas - Wisconsin

1. 172 - 186 5/8
2. 171 - 180 2/8
3. 163 1/8 - 177 1/8
4. 160 5/8 - 176 2/8
5. 158 6/8 - 175 5/8
In this example, Texas' top buck still wouldn't crack Wisconsin's top 5 (probably not top 10).
Once again though, Iowa and Illinois still top Wisconsin, with Minnesota close behind. Therefore again a top region would be somewhere in any of those states, or where those states come together, which coincidentally Pike Co. Ill, Dubuque Co. Iowa, and Buffalo Co. Wis, all famous for producing large bucks,are all in that area.

To find out this stuff all I did was Google "Pope and Young States".

Not only is the racks bigger! but how many texas deer do you going over 300lb? It really is not that uncommon in the northen states and canada! texas does have some fine animals! but it just does not compair to wisconsin or ILL. or Kansas!
