Default Shot by a poacher??(PIC)

My father forwarded this email this morning. It claims that the buck in the attached picture was shot by a poacher near Dryden Ontario and seized by the OMNR. It claims that the buck would have been the new world record by at least 41 points. I am not trying to start any arguements here (there have been far too many to begin with!) I am just wondering if anyone has the FACTS on this matter. Thank you .

Forgive me Nub, but what is the story on this buck? I have never seen the pic before and am trying to get the true story. Could you please enlighten me? Perhaps I do need to do a bit of catching up, but I honestly would like to know the truth about this buck. Thanks.

YLM; This buck has been beat to death on all the message boards. Heres a qoute from another site that sums it up.
The story is the deer was shot 1/2 hour after legal hunting time by a non-resident rifle hunter from Louisiana. He got cold feet and immediatly left the province leaving this and another deer hanging back at camp.

The Dryden Ministry office now has the deer. The 18 point grosses 223+ and nets 199-7/8 green typical. 12" of non-typical and an unmatched 7" tine kept this deer from world record consideration.

More info will become available after the investigation is completed.
You could also type in "Ontario buck" in the search feature and find some more.

Well put, Mauser. I just discovered this board about two months ago and in the short time since then it has changed a lot. When I first started reading the board it was very informative and people seemed to get along really well and that is what seperated this board from some of the others. But, lately you have to wade through three pages of crap that no one cares anything about just to get any useful info. I think it is great that folks post there "real deer" on here for us to see, because they are very proud of them, but I too am sick of seeing "possible new somethin or other record" on three out of five posts. I hope that the board can eventually go back to how it used to be. Just my .02
