600 Inch Deer

newsletter 7 15 600 DEER
Which Would You Rather?

A 600″ deer. I’m pretty sure I read that correctly. I have no idea of the origins of the text or the photo, but from the looks of it, the deer seems like it could be about 600″, not like I’m used to judging something of that level of freaky though.

I’m not sure what test tube or state they brewed this thing up in, but I do feel somewhat sorry for the animal. A genetic freak of nature, pushed beyond the limits with the aid of steroids and growth hormones, only to be sold to the highest bidder.

Certainly no way to live in my opinion. The buck I’ll be chasing this fall is certainly nothing close to 600″, maybe not even 200 but a free roaming wild animal minus the confines of a high fence, living in God’s country high, wild and free like it was supposed to be.

I’m proud to say, I’ll take the 200-incher any day of the week under these circumstances. No fences here, and fair chase is the only way to hunt and take trophy big game. Best of luck this fall.

The letter below came through my email this morning. I’ll not divulge who wrote it …


  1. That’s not a buck. That’s some genetically altered freak of man. No way would I even consider that as a trophy. Just not for me.

  2. Agreed Guy. This is nothing that I would feel right hunting.

    I’m so glad to hear your thoughts, which I share, we are true hunters! this people should be a shamed of treating wild life like this. I just read this morning a dentist that paid 50,000.00 US to pull a Lion out of a National Park to shoot it. This butchers are a disgrace to the hunters community.

  4. I’m with you Guy. Good hunting to all that
    practice fair chase this fall.

    Not really a Buck in the true sense its much more exciting to try and locate a natural trophy or any natural buck for that matter then to hunt something that you know is altered by man

  6. Kelly Devenish

    10,000′ mulies…nothing more rewarding or tough!!

  7. Fair chase, no fences!!

  8. That’s so much BS! Or it grew up in some nuclear waste dump site! Now make sure you tell all your readers the exact coordinates so all you readers can go there and ruin it like you did my place!

  9. Get your facts straight. It’s all genetics not steroids. Why do people post articles without checking your facts. I think it’s a freak also. But you base your writing on truths not made up BS!


  11. Hell I am happy with a 120 BC. This buck is most likely a gelded buck. They do not shed and continue to grow throughout the life just adding mass. Geldings stay in velvet as well and do not shed the velvet.

  12. Free Range is the only way to hunt

  13. ROD you don”t have a clue.Genetics alone can not produce a buck like that.

  14. Looks like a new zealand special to me. Lot of these kind of things over there, while pay by points is a common practice. I just feel sad to see things like that but if there is a demand then there will be supply.

  15. These feed trough deer and the people who raise them make me want to WRETCH! Not even close to hunting but some perverted idea of “if I kill this animal, then I am somehow special.”
    You are not special. You are pathetic!

  16. Kevin Schwinkendorf

    My guess as to this buck’s origin just might be Photoshop! It doesn’t even look possible to me!

  17. There’s a set of rattling horns!

  18. Gees, thats a fenced freak for sure. Shame that deer farming has created this.

  19. One thing that upsets me about this deer is the fact that it has to carry all that weight around. They show u a pic of it standing all proud but I can almost guarantee most of the time it’s up against a fence resting against it to take the strain off of its neck. We had a “500” inch deer here in Wisconsin in a game farm and the poor thing could barely pick it’s head up and eventually died. I’m a hunter but I also respect the animals I hunt. That’s no way for a deer to live especially if it’s genetically altered to grow big. IMHO
