Is this a natural buck or off of a preserve? There is some questionable (to me, at least) 'growing' of bucks for unnaturally large racked bucks for trophy hunts.

Congratulations--that's an amazing non-typical. Make sure you let us know when you have it scored.

Even so called free range bucks east of the Mississippi are fed on plots on "the lease" or "back forty.".

Impressive, nonetheless. Sucker for non-typs; look at those cheaters and drop tines. Sometimes, however, those are indicative of artificial nutrition....

Speaking as a native Michigander bucks up there run big. Plenty of corn and sugar beets.

This is one my grandfather killed back in the 50's. It's a shame that you can now "buy" a fenced deer and go shoot him in front of a feeder at an exactly known time.

Ohio produces massive bucks regularly. There is no rifle season. Only black powder, shotgun and bow. So they grow bigger because it takes the better than average hunter. Look at the MonsterBuckOhio billboards or images.

Thats what I was thinking as well. It is impressive but I feel bad for the buck that has to carry around unnaturally large and bulky antlers due to artificial nutrition for trophy chasers.

It's 50/50 on a free range deer. Somebody else has pics of it on camera most likely. The truth will come out. That is probably a $20k deer behind a fence, and the worst part about that is right after its shot they castrate it......

I know a guy who works at a deer ranch in Texas. They had a buck a few years ago that was worth $1,000,000.00. They made a fortune selling the deers semen. He said they had to cut the deers antlers off as soon as they lost their velvet otherwise they couldn't breed the does on the ranch.

Hunting used to be a hobby and now it is a money making industry. We lease duck blinds for a fortune down here because we are in the flyway.
