I thought some of you may find this as intriguing as I did. I know it will be hard to believe for some, but the pics do not appear to be photoshopped. Maybe it is the 1 buck limit that made him grow the once in a lifetime beard. \:\) Enjoy.

It's not photoshopped, but I find it almost impossible to believe. It would not be uncommon for some strands of beard to be severed by shot, and pulled through to the point of giving an illusion of a 21" beard. I am not saying the hunter is lying either, because I had one years ago that had that happen, and it was difficult to tell that the strand had been severed until I really pulled on it to make sure, and found it was actually loose strands. The beard measured 10" for the record.

Anything is possible, but there is a reason there has only been one offically measured beard around that length.

Did you look at the additional pictures on page 3? Or just the cover picture on page 1? Pictures on page 3 show it from a little different angle etc. Here is link to pics on page 3 if you missed them. http://www.kentuckyhunting.net/forums/sh...8a21843d04a3818

It appears legit to me.

Longest I found in NWTF records is 22.5", killed in TX. You can search their records here.

Explain this statement more. Are you saying the entries are not validated in person by a certified person or what?
