Ken Garcia has his sights set on bigger game.
I saw more mule deer bucks in the first day and a half than I saw in the past six years of hunting mule deer in New Mexico.
Ken is talking about his premier mule deer hunt that he took as the 2010 winner of the Big Time Texas Hunts’ Grand Slam package.

I just bought one each year for 12 years with just one chance and I won….pretty good turn on investment I’d say.
For a $10-dollar entry, or $9 online, anyone can enter the Big Time Texas Hunts for chances to win guided hunting trips. Packages include the Texas Grand Slam, a chance to hunt all four of Texas' premier big game animals - Mule Deer, Pronghorn, Whitetail and the Bighorn Sheep.
There are also bird hunts, waterfowl hunts, exotic hunts, an alligator hunt and for the first time this year, a wild hog hunt. Since 1997, the Big Time Texas Hunt’s drawing has made over 9 million dollars to help fund wildlife management and research, habitat conservation and public hunting opportunities in Texas.
For $10, I got all this.
Out of all four premier hunts, it was his Bighorn Sheep that he remembers the most.
That beautiful backdrop with Cathedral Mountain back there, it’s just, it doesn’t get any better.
For Texas Parks and Wildlife, this is Lydia Saldaña.
