deer. Images of this buck started circulating the Internet last month with
claims that the deer was worth $1 million.
The mutant-like whitetail is clearly a pen-raised breeder buck and he
recently popped up on Trophy Watch, the Boone
and Crockett Club's website.
What was the B&C's take? Here's what they wrote ...
folks who would pay to shoot them; scientifically we have the know how, but why
should we; is this buck domestic livestock, and if so is killing him still
considered hunting; what does the 73 percent of those non-hunters who still
support hunting think; and has the idea of trophy for some surpassed the
satisfaction of the chase?
Whatever your answers are to these questions, or your feelings toward this
growing trend of trophy at any cost, you will never see such animals listed in
Boone and Crockett records.
