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 islikely 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?
