Deer 400lb Maine buck (hunting photos)

Comment: The photo looks real enough but I am always skeptical. Surely this animal would
have been judged on the Boone and Crocket scale for antler size? Are there newspaper articles
to back it up. How about the Maine Dept. of wildlife, Natural Resources, etc.

Definitely possible, according to the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife.

"After attaining maturity at age five, our bucks can reach record live weights of nearly 400 lbs."

According to this forum: http://discussions.texasbowhunter.co...d.php?t=124547

It's from a farm in Wisconsin.

This farm, apparently: http://www.wildernesswhitetails.com/ . If you go to the Trophy Gallery for 2009, this picture is in there.
