Why do we always have to be so negative and envious of other peoples good fortune?
Congratulations to Cory Gulvas of Wellsboro PA.

This is why people get skeptical . Earlier in Nov this deer was shown in news articles as the potential non typical record for bow in NY . Claimed he shot it with his bow in Chautauqua County NY . Turns out the guy was a liar and actually paid to shoot it at a deer farm in the next county over.

And here is where he got caught on social media showing one of the deer farm owners posing with the buck and a picture of him holding the rack, Thats why he didn't want his face pic in the news article. he knew he might get recognized

I didn't see any envy or negativity, I think the antlers didn't quite look right and with all the photo shopping going on some skepticism is reasonable.

Yep unfortunately this is the times we live in.

Most of us were hoping it was real and said as much.

The chatter here reminds me of the comments you'd see over on ArcheryTalk. Most of the comments were questioning if authentic, Bocajnala is right with above comment, nature of the beast today.
