If I shot a 250 inch buck and was then offered 100 k I would have to check my pulse because I'm pretty sure I would be in Heaven

IF it was to happen i probably would. but the problem would be that the money would run out. Now remember this is all theoretical.
First sell it and get the replicas.
second this would also bring some fame your way. use it. start some seminars or speaking event on your story and make money off appearances.
Third use the money to buy some extra land where you killed it and then start an outfitter. people would pay even more to hunt where this deer was taken. then you have a steady stream of alot of money coming in.

in 2005 while I was at Buckorama in Georgia I had a man offer me 8000 for the buck in my avatar ...I told him it just was not for sell ..he said "what would buy it" and I just would not price it to him ...scared he might buy it ..I could never replace him or the feeing I get every time I look at him on the wall.

Whose buying all these replicas some say they would sell?

And if they are selling, why would they bother with an original?

The price of trophy antlers has really tumbled the last couple years. These days you can buy a canned deer hunt with a guarranteed 190-200 inch deer for $15-20k. The deer farms are producing tons of genetically enhanced deer that overshadow most traditionally hunted deer as far as antler size goes. The big name retailerscan buy sheds from these farmsmuch cheaper than what they were paying for free-range trophys a couple years back. IMO the only deer that would be worth money today would be potential world record breakers or other olderwell-publicized kills that are close to the record.

Well I suppose if offered a crazy sum of money for my buck I would be compelled to sell it ...my buck was very unique but not a 200in rack ...so I suppose I won't have to worry about it
