What’s billed as the World’s Oldest Deer Contest, The Muy Grande Deer Contest announced that all leaders of the 55th annual event are now declared winners.

Founded in 1965 by Leonel “Muy” Garza, it was once called “little filling station deer contest.”

This contest has been honored by the State of Texas on numerous occasions for whitetail conservation, deer management and many other contributions, especially in South Texas.

With 16 divisions and a large number of participants, the South Texas region was represented well on the leader board.

The Muy Grande Deer Contest Awards ceremony will be held in Freer on Mar 27.
