I was wondering if this picture was going to pop up on here. I work in Cabelas Gun Library in Huntsville, AL and this brute was supposedly shot a few minutes from where I live. The story is that it was shot on some airport land that only a couple of people can hunt on. One of my coworkers was showing this picture yesterday, I didnt notice that the ear was gone. There is another picture of it with a crossbow bolt stuck in the ribs, apparently it was shot previously shot but didnt penetrate past the skin. I have no idea whats true or not but this picture is spreading quick.

Seen that picture also. So far I've seen 5 pictures of this buck, 2 had the right ear photo-shopped out, 1 was cropped so you couldn't see the ear clearly and the 4th had the inside of the ear enhanced with white (phot-shopped). The pic with the arrow in it didn't show the ear well. Somebody has went to allot of trouble to keep people from seeing that right ear. Only reason I can think of to do all that is a possible hole in the ear where a tag went. Even if I'm wrong and the buck is legit somebody is going to have to explain the phot-shopping on that right ear. The photo-shop scars in the picture are obvious, very poorly done.
