I truly get a kick out of stuff like this. Here is a wild, free-ranging deer that not only has the right stuff to grow huge...he also has the good fortune of living in an area where, for much of the year, he enjoys some protection. And as local officials and state game agency folk have pointed out before, the more coverage this buck gets, the safer he stays. I have no doubt there are poachers or thrill-killers watching this buck; there are also lots and lots of good folk doing the same. And the more good folk, the merrier, in my book.
