Muy Grande since 1965

Muy Grande | Country Store | Deer Contest

Attention Muy Grande Winners:

The Muy Grande Deer Contest completed its 55th Anniversary this past hunting season. Once again & since 1965, hunters from all over the world competed in the great sport of hunting & supported the oldest deer contest in the world, started by Leonel ‘Muy’ Garza & wife Elda.

For the first time in 55 years however, and due to the Corona Virus / COVID 19, ‘Muy’ & Elda are canceling the prestigious Muy Grande Awards Ceremony that was scheduled for Saturday, June 27th. Every June, this ceremony draws a crowd of over 500 of the best hunters in the world to the small community of Freer. We are disappointed to change our plans; however, we invite all winners to Freer, Texas throughout the weekend of July 31st - August 2nd (& there after) to pick up their prizes, trophies, customized Muy Grande jackets, souvenirs, & get their pictures taken at the Muy Grande convenience store. We intend to give every winner & especially every youth winner, all the recognition & support they deserve.

Please understand that due to the need for social distancing & taking other precautionary measures, we feel this decision is in the best interest of our hunters & especially ‘Muy’ who will be celebrating his 80th Birthday on the 4th of July! 🎉🇺🇸

Please note that this pandemic may have temporarily changed the course for everyone in the great USA over the last few months, but it will never alter or eliminate the spirit of whitetail deer hunting! We anxiously await November to arrive for each of us to continue in the Search of the Muy Grande!

God bless you all! We sincerely love & appreciate every one of Muy & Elda’s Hunting Friends! ❤️
