Local Woman Attends Big Game Awards
Jennifer Marek attended the Texas Big Game Awards held at Brazos County Exposition Complex in partnership with Texas AgriLife Extension Saturday August 21, 2010. The awards program was for Region 5 Post Oak Savannah, Region 6 Pineywoods and Region 7 Coastal Prairies. The Texas Big Game Awards recognizes hunters, landowners, firsttimers and youth in each region across Texas.
Jennifer killed an 11 point deer December 12, 2010 at 9:37 a.m. with her daughter Jordan Marek (her first morning hunt). The harvest was taken in Lee County. The B&C gross score was 136 7/8. Jennifer has been hunting this buck for three years.
There are eight geographic regions that are recognized by the TexasBig Game Awards. Regional scores for the “Scored Entry” category vary depending upon the region where the big game animals were harvested. To become eligible to receive the Texas Big Game Awards, the whitetail deer killed in 2009-2010 hunting season must have a Boone and Crockett Score of 125 for a Typical Whitetail and a Boone and Crockett Score of 140 for a Non-typical whitetail in region 5,6 and 7.
The Texas Big Game Award is designed to promote big game hunting in Texas and to promote and encourage sound habitat and wildlife management. The program recognizes: the quality of big game animals in Texas; the hunters who harvest these animals; the land managers who produce these animals; the importance of our hunting heritage; and the achievements of young and new hunters.
