Default 400lb Maine Buck

I just got this picture emailed to me claiming that this is a 400lb buck shot in Maine. Does anyone know if this is real??

I shot a buck before over 300 pounds without it's guts. If you add about 80 lbs. to my buck, in my opinion, it still wouldn't come close to the buck pictured. Buck above looks disproportionate; like it should weigh 500 lbs. or more.

LOL! Maine now?

When this was sent to me quite awhile ago, it supposedly was off a high fenced op in Mid west somewhere.

I agree, the size of that rack the guy would NEVER be able to hold that up with his fingertips

Not only is it a photo shopped picture but the claim that it's from Maine marks the 8th different place I've heard it was killed. Bogus story.

No, he just has an extraordinary long thumb.

This buck was taken in Canada and as far as I know it is a real picture. It was short story featured in Field and Stream two years ago. I'll go look through my mags and try and find what issue and some more info.
