Even if that was his sole reason in posting, which I really don't think it is, you are the one that brought the stick and started stirring. If you know what happens to his threads and don't like it, why post something just to get it started? Especially if you say you don't have a problem with what the post is about.

Novel idea. You could adjust your "posting" style. Or you could, go away. You said me posting something and knowing someone is gonna say something. Everything was good till you showed up. So I guess you're "someone"... Okay I'm done with ya. You get the last word. Go...

Those of you questioning breeding deer to grow big antlers.... Have y'all seen the club calf operations going on around the country? Obvious inbreeding and line breeding yet still making much more $$$ than what these deer are making. And nobody seems to argue that case.

Great looking deer. McSpadden has grown a lot of big deer over the years.

I am still a fan of Perfect Dream from the Texas M3 Ranch. 302" and 36" spread.

I know most these breeders are doing work with genetics and nutrition but have some form of steroids come in to play yet (performance enhancing drugs)?

Not referring to whether people think it's right or wrong!!!! Just curious if someone's developed a buck Anabol or does something like this even work on deer?

Yes that's the only 400 incher I've seen that doesn't just look mostly like a blob. I'm not Al gaga over spread but 41 inside is severely impressive.

It sure seems like you're the only one to say something, everyone else is staying pretty civil.:roll eyes:

On a side note, that is a hoss of a deer. I'm ready to see what my Uncle's deer turn out to be this year.

Heres his pride and joy Revolver (died last year).

Not a fan of man-made breeder bucks. I wonder if "Revolver" died of a broken neck? Looks like he's having a hard time lifting his head. I like my deer as I like my women, somewhat proportional.

He died at 9.5 years old, just about 6 months ago. We think he had a stroke or something, he was in quarantine for a whole because he had a hard time walking. Stroke symptoms.

I sometimes wonder if these comments are out of jealousy or not being able to afford some of these hunts. I know lots of these deer breeders and most that I know have no ego and just want to grow big deer. They don't really advertise or get in to the penis measuring contests. Most of my hunts are total free range or low fence. That being said, I have hunted plenty behind a fence and have had a great time doing it. Growing big deer is just like other sports and hobbies. Costs big money to make cars go fast, own horses that run fast, Bulls that grow big or buck, stock lakes and streams with fish, etc, etc, etc........

The OP thinks he's extremely clever. He posts stuff like this and watches all of you end up at each other's throats. He's been banned for being too slow to understand that people see through it and are tired of it. Apparently his time in the cooler wasn't long enough. If he keeps it up he's probably going to need a bigger jacket.
