    Yesterday at work an e-mail made the rounds with this link:

    http://ehc.astate.edu/New_Folder2/Picture%20Page.htm

    Does anyone know anything about it?
    It is a set of pictures of a 412#, 10 point buck taken with a bow.

    Something keeps coming to mind, "If it seems too good to be true, it probably is", and that would be too bad.

    I've heard of a few 400+ pounder deer, that boyo definately looks like he is packing some mass. Definately over 3, 4 doesn't suprise me.

    I'm thinking it's a perspective issue. How long are those arrows, 28 to 30" I'd say. The bucks ears are probably 6" long. Take that 6" long ear and overlay it on one of the fellas 9" tall head (human head ~9"x6") and it appears to match well. I'd say we're looking at a deer that appear ~50% larger than it actually is.

    I've been at a deer check station while a hunter brought in a buck that weighed exactly 370. It was killed Nov (1st week). He had not gutted it yet b/c he wanted to weigh it. There was about 11 of us standing around as he muscled this deer up on the hooks with the aid of his buddy. His deer "appeared" to be quite a bit bigger than the one in the photo. But that really doesn't mean anything. The buck I saw appeared to have substantially more girth than the one in the photo.

    The last picture blows the story to bits!!! That is a 60"+ compound bow? Its almost as long as a 410# deer? Think not! Average mature bucks in E TX, about 125-175# are 6-7+ ft long. JB has it right! That is a PhotoShop monster! Nothing more!

    think you better look at the first and last picture again. The bow is laying in front of the rear leg and coming to the front of the front leg in the last picture which is the same length as shown in the first picture.

    I have seen 375 lb deer and this boy is huge.

    If photoshopped damn good job. Look at the leaves and twigs and how they maintain size and perspective.

    Actually, in the first pic the bow does not reach the apparent wound. In the last pic, the bow stretches way past the wound and is still on the ground well infront of the shoulder. It's a photoshop booboo!

    Yeah, it's enough make your hart jump… at first. I copied the photos over to my pc after reading a few posts questioning their authenticity – too good to be true? Yes, if you blow the photos up a little you can see just how altered they are. The guy in cammo may have mitts for hands, but not literally, they are way too big in two of those shots.
