Most of the so called pro hunters have made hunting their career and have took the chance of failing at making a living doing so but given the money , places to hunt , time to do so I do believe a lot of hunters on this site could do what they do . Now most of us can't take the chance of failing because of our loved ones who depend upon us for support so we don't have the gonads to take that plunge . Watch most of the videos and tell me you couldn't kill the deer they are killing if you was put in a spot with a guide knowing your chances are real high at getting a shot at a bruiser they have been watching and growing for their clients . Now I edited this post for one reason and that is this , don't think I was including me when I said some on this site because I would probably get buck fever and miss my chance at some of the big bucks they get to hunt

What seems strange to me is that he's being accused of swapping the rack from a "found" skull onto a freshly killed buck that he has pictures of just after being shot. Is that feasible that a taxidermist could slap a set of antlers on a buck that fast and make it look natural enough for photographing? It would be akward to do this with a buck that had just been field-dressed and no other processing because you wouldn't be working with a form held on a bench but the entire animal whcih is heavy and trying to fall over as you work on it. I admit the antlers do look the same but it seems a stretch to think he put them on a freshly shot buck........

Maybe he had a full body mount already to go. Threw some antlers on it, snapped a pic, then removed the antlers for scoring.

Yeah, I thought of that after writing the above post. With the amount of money that can potentially be gained gets high enough, there is always a motive for going to extreme efforts to commit fraud. Having that huge set of antlers from a "found" skull could get a hunter to thinking about how he could get credit for shooting such a buck. Having kill pictures of the deer with antlers intact is the perfect "alibi". If he did that, he's one resourceful crooked hunter. \:\)

You always hear the pro's saying they couldn't take a shot because the camera didn't have enough light. However, I am not sure I can recall a big deer being killed without video of that deer on camera beforehand. And I am not sure a pro at that level would ever get into a stand without a camera rolling, that's his livelihood.

So, there must be no video or even trailcam pics of this deer and then magically it shows up dead and BTW there's a found rack he purchased that looks amazingly similar. Money and greed.

Ditto on both of those comments.

I've taken a lot of heat over the years for saying it, but I'll say it again: TV hunting shows are the worst thing to happen to deer hunting in a very long time. And I'll take even more heat for saying this: I find the current rapidly growing trend towards filming hunts to be a deeply disturbing attempt to emulate TV hunting shows and the dubious "fame" of their "stars."
