The Largest Whitetail on Record?

The video below features a buck named “Free Agent” that is said to be the largest whitetail on record. Battle Ridge Whitetails, a deer breeding operation in McConnellsburg, Pa., is home to this behemoth that is likely worth six figures. While this kind of business has nothing to do with fair chase pursuits, it has found a place in today’s deer hunting world. High-fence game operations are thriving in some areas of the country, and we shouldn’t expect them to go away anytime soon. Regardless of your opinion on the matter, this whitetail is an impressive sight. His seed is being sold to the highest bidder.

What are your thoughts on whitetail breeding operations? Anybody dare to count the points or score this roadside attraction?

Rich doctors and lawyers need to go out and shoot a real buck like the rest of us.

I find the game farm raised deer important because its interesting to see where the antler genetics would end up if predation didn't limit the lifespan over which the antlers can grow. I think it says something about the "trends" that guide antler growth. In every deer like this I have seen that "trend" is just mass: antler grows anywhere and everywhere.

Looks like something from a syfy movie. Would not even try to score this big guy.Don't think I could count that high.
