It is a great story. Why do some not believe a story even though there are pictures. This is the proof of envy in the basket(Head)
Great luck for a hunter.

REMNAR. A fifty-pointer! I almos' pulled -

REUBEN. An' yer still drivin' dis whole time?
REMNAR. I do not believe I was, no. Somebody had dere
hands on da wheel, but I cannot tell ya fer sure dey was mine.
REUBEN. Holy wha.
REMNAR. Holy wha is right. All I could see was dis monster
buck in my mind.
ALBERT. In yer mind is right.
REMNAR. So I imagined m'self bringin' up my t'irty-t'irty. An'
I get 'im right in my crosshairs. An' still he don't move a muscle.
But he's facin' me straight up, eh. I can't get da good shot. So I
whisper to 'im, "Turn around, big boy. Lemme see ya from da
side." An' sure enough, he turns fer me. An' he stands dere, tall an'
proud, like da trophy dat he is. An' dat's when he spoke to me.
REUBEN. He spoke?
ALBERT. A talkin' buck?
REMNAR. "Take me, Remnar. Take me now.~' An' I raised up
my t'irty-t'irty, cocked back my hammer, an' blew 'im off da face
o' de eart'. I tell ya, Reuben, it was as real as you.
REUBEN. Wish I'd been da one dat seen it.

Through out that whole story I never saw once where it said "fair chase" or "free range". And why run right to Buckmasters for a score? Pope & Young excepts antlers in velvet... Unless... They're shot in a pen.

bounty1, All those monster buck stories, that were posted on the F&S website, didn't mention it was "free range" or "fair chase", either. Does that mean all those bucks lived inside pens, also?

You got me there Gary Devine, but it still doesn't over see the obvious, by running right to Buckmasters, Which does except penned deer, instead of Pope & Young, which does not.

Pen deer? I doubt it. It is costly to put up a fence and remember the deer was shot and healed which means it was outside the range this kid was hunting.

To me though these grossly pointed bucks are just that. gross, and I'd take a more symetrical rack that's wide, even if it is 8 or 10 points.

You can hunt, shoot, wound, and not recover a penned deer with a firearm as well. I know of one "hunter" that says it happened to him in a 1500 acre pen. I still don't believe this deer was a free range deer. Cartwright says he went to Buckmasters for a score because Boone & Crockett does not except antlers in velvet... He's right... They don't, but Pope & Young does. It was shot with a frik'n arrow. What does Boone & Crockett have to do with it?

Congratulations Thad!
Kentucky had another one similar to yours, about 8 years ago in Gallatin County, but not as impressive.
It did make it in a couple of magazines.

Go U.K.!
Go Big Blue!

To fence land is very expensive and these people are not in the outfitting or guide business. If you look at the rack what makes it score high is that it is freakish. I am very familiar with that part of Kentucky and a lot of big dear come out of that area, all of them not fenced in.

Even if the deer was shot in a bathtub, it didn't cause his antlers to grow that way. Stop accusing this young man of doing something wrong. Odds are, this deers daddy or granddaddy was a genetic breeding buck. We're all grownups on this page. We all know they don't know older and look like this after getting shot without something being in his genes. I'm not saying it was this young man or his family, but I am saying, there is something in his blood somewhere that was created in a test tube.

I know this young man personally. I grew up with his dad and Thad has several years of whitetail hunting under his belt and his dad proudly displays 2 of his bucks in his office. These are good christian hard working outdoor loving ppl letsbe proud this buck was killed by someone who earned it and not poached or killed by an automobile like a lot of nice bucks....Congrats Thad!!
