492 inch whitetail!

Unread postby Black Squirrel » Wed Jun 02, 2010 1:40 am

Here is a link from Deer and Deer Hunting on some footage of some really huge bucks. Some of the bucks are only 2 and a halfs! :shock: http://www.deeranddeerhunting.com/artic ... Whitetail/
This farm is in Northern Wisconsin, and I assume the bucks are from last year. I'm not sure how to take this. Is it good or bad for deer hunting? I'm thinking it can't be good. The deer can hardly hold it's head up, and it says they lost the 492 incher to an antler infection. :(

Once again, Man's quest to make everything better is usually the demise on mankind. Horses went bye-bye with the advent of cars which made everything better, and now we have oil spills and pollution. We needed electricity and dug for coal and built nuclear power plants - now we have more problems...all to make it better. Food additives cause cancer, pills for erectile dysfunction, on and on...you get my drift. Folks weren't happy with hard-work and fair chase, so they decided to best Mother Nature and make better deer to breed and hunt. Now, we have amazing deer but will it be better in the long run? I am gonna say that this will all blow up in our faces in the next decade. Sit back and watch.

Something I noticed about all the bucks with alot of antler that were 3 years or younger, their body size was extremely small looking and unproportioned for their age, even the 6 year old didn't have the body of a 6 year old deer. Wonder if they are a texas strain???? Either way if these deer are being raised to be hunted it is wrong.

It's a bit much...while it may be awesome to some, it's just "canned antler" and if a person shoots this deer I really don't see the "trophy".
Definately over the top and too much. There has to be a limit sometimes.

There was a segment on this farm, which is located here in central WI on Keith Warren's Deer and Wildlife Stories. The lady that owns the property with her sons feeds the deer sunflowers and apples everyday. She picks them every morning for the deer, kind of neat. At the same time, there has to be more than genetics pumped into these deer. Just seems too unreal to have a 164" yearling.

Im sure some of these super genetic freaks are brought in from out of state or there semen is purchased for reproduction purposes. Either way its gone way overboard and i feel sorry for anyone who calls this ethical, moral etc.. As far as body size goes they are pen deer, not wild animals. This kind of crap floating around on the net is what fuels the anti's fire!
