Default New Maine record or hoax?

This photo was sent to me by my cousin,which was e-mailed to him. It is supposedly a new Maine whitetail record. There wasn't much detail accompanying the photo. Maybe Champlain,Ed or Phil may know something of this story. It is strange that noone from Maine posted this in the northeast forum.

Gotta be some great photoshopping ! If you look at the deer compared to the guy the deer would have to weigh 500lbs.

This has been flipping around a afair bit. Regardless, it is a massive freaking deer. He doesnt look like he is dressed for hunting though, and isnt most Maine deer hunting done with snow on the ground? I would bet lunch at McDonalds that it is a very expensive pen raised deer.

That thing is the size of an elk. If that was a record somewere, I'm sure it would have been reported in some outdoor rag.

LOL we do have some big deer but I have never seen anything that size..LOL It is surely some great photo shopping though..

Not really as it veries from the northern part to the southern part of the state. Most of the state in the past few years has had little snow on the ground. It is normally cold in most areas though.. I would bet you it is nothing more than photo shopping..

I think that deer is tranked. His tongue tells a tale along with no blood of any kind. Deer usually die with their eyes open. He is panting, it appears.
My neighbor's cousin's sister's neighbor tranked one just like it.

stomach is disproportionate to the rest of the body/man.
Also, there is a gap between the hand and rack. FAKE

My BS meter is pegged on this one! The sheer fact that it hasn't been spalshed all over the outdoor press says volumes.

I say fake!

Well gentleman,the hunter is from Maine. The deer is not fake! What is fake,the location of the kill. Wonder what the hunter paid for that buck?

Maine Buck Removed

January 16, 2010 by JT
Filed under Deer Hunting, General






We removed that big buck post from “Maine”, it was a fake deal, actually it was from a deer farm somewhere in WI. I received comments and info from a couple of readers…thanks guys. I was afraid of that from the beginning. We do not endorse pen raised deer hunts, only fair chase hunts.
www.american-hunter.com/monster-buck-from-maine

It was killed on a trophy farm in Wisconsin.
This farm: http://www.wildernesswhitetails.com/ . If you go to the Trophy Gallery for 2009, this picture is in there.

According to the Wilderness Whitetail website (and sure enough, there is our lucky hunter and buck) it is an 800 acre game farm. $10,000.00 for a 170 class or greater deer, with a 5000.00 trophy fee, depending on actual scoring! I am sorry, but the massive deer they show look grotesque to me. Sure I would love to honestly come by a huge wild grown deer, but I couldnt be proud doing it this way.
