400-Inch Enclosure Buck

Postby Corey Graff » Thu Sep 11, 2008 12:17 pm

Is This The World's Largest Whitetail?

The following video link of a huge nontypical whitetail is almost impossible
to believe, but it is real. The catch is the deer is a farm-raised whitetail
that was sired from pedigree stock. Check out the link, then click on our
link below to check in with your comments.

Question: Now that you've seen the video, what are your thoughts on this
buck and the conditions in which it was raised?

As soon as I saw "enclosure", I was done. Don`t confuse "enclosure" raised pets with wild deer any more than "shooting" in an enclosure can be called hunting.
 
This is a blight and needs to be removed.

I have no problem with a fellow like that being raised in a pen.  I have no problem with folks raising deer, selling deer, providing stud services, frozen sperm, etc.  Some people raise dogs, some rabbits; deer should be no different.

When the animal gets led into a small  pen and killed for sport, then I have a problem.  I get to really fuming if someone then tries to call it hunting. 

It's a nice deer to be sure.

That deer sure looks interesting.
 
I'd prefer a typical 8 on my wall however.

first off that deer is a freak and looks uncomfortable with all that junk on its head..  I hope that deer is not going to killed by the highest bidder, calling himself a hunter.. 
 
Anybody know what state that is in..

Why is this topic on a forum associated with deer HUNTING in the first place?
 
It's about a relevant as us talking about a 1800 pound brood sow, or a 4 ton Hereford bull raised on steroids.

shaman i agree 100%. anyone remeber 30-30? the 30 pt buck with the 30 inch spread from the farm in texas i believe, that would have dashed hansens current record.

I'm not going to wade into the whole "pen raised" issue. With the ethical, legal, and CWD issues that these things present, I'd rather they just fade away. I tire of that debate.
 
But I will say that I do not find that rack appealing in the least. It's freakish! I don't even get the fascination with the record book wild deer. I'd much rather look at a gnarly old 150-170" that came out of someones farm woodlot or some north woods hideaway.
 
I just can't relate to those giants. I've  never seen anything like that, and to tell the truth, it's not the kind of thing I dream about from the bunk of my hunting cabin.

this all ties in with the "antler illness" and the dollars associated with this type of deer. i know ive mentioned it before but check out a place called samsons ridge. its a preserve here in illinois that charges according to the size deer you want to shoot for big$.
