Yes, Beast Mastery Can Raid!

Frostheim at WoW Insider: Beast mastery hunters suffered on the DPS charts for the majority of WotLK. By just about any measure, hunters were giving up a lot of DPS by playing the BM spec: around 20% behind the leading hunter spec at best, one of the worst three specs in the game in Wrath, and that’s a heck of a lot of DPS loss for a raid leader to swallow.
