Yea, I got the same email. Here is the email and photo. One UGLY buck, but I'd still shoot it grin.gif

faa39514.jpg

Somewhere in Iowa
This deer was just taken by the boy on the right. The boy has muscular dystrophy and is in a wheelchair, yet he managed to shoot the buck all by himself. This buck has one base coming out of the head that is 16 inches
around. About 2 inches up it splits into 2 beams and the deer's C-1 measurements are just shy of 10. The deer carried the mass all the way to the end and had just over 68 inches of mass. I believe the brow tines
on this buck are roughly 14 and 11 inches and there is a 12 inch forked point coming forward from between the brows. The sheds from this particular buck in a preserve from last year and when he shed he also shed the entire bone between both antlers as well. There is about a 1" piece of extra bone from
his skull on the inside of both sheds, which explains this years unique rack."

Pretty sure that's not the deer they are talking about. The big buck that was taken near Albia, IA had a very wide and tall rack with a drop down tine on one side. No new pictures of the deer have been released yet as the father has been negotiating with different Magazines for the rights to the photo's and story. A guy that works with my company lives about 20 miles from Albia, IA and is in MN doing some business, I showed him that picture and it's not the big Albia buck. He has seen the mounted "shedds" from the big buck found 2 years ago. Supposedly the big buck was not seen during 2002 and thought to maybe have been killed or died somehow. The father found the 2002 year shedds later but told no one. I guess the land the deer was shot on is owned by the young kids Grandfather. Sounds like the DNR was notified almost immediately of the big buck kill and did interviews with the hunter. It will be pretty awesome to see the actual pictures of the "Albia" buck when they become available.

I believe you're correct doubleUcubed. It's amazing what photo editing software can do. It even fools the human eye.

No idea if this is the actual buck, but this is the email going around. I just copied the email directly - could very well be a fake.

Congragulations to the young man who shot this deer! Time will tell if it's a world record or not, I'd hate to see this turn into a debate. The young man took a great deer and we should all be happy for him and his dad.

Congragulations again!!!

I know we can't post links, but if you do a search for albia buck, you'll see pictures of the deer taken while it was still living. There's a lot of controversy over the nontypical pic, many deer forums are claiming it's a doctored photo.

As we were talking yest. about the Albia buck my friend said that last year some of the big hunting supply companies had least like around 12,000 acres of land in the Albia area in order to get one of their "hunters" the opportunity to get the deer. He also indicated that the photo's/most of the photo's taken of the "Abia" buck were taken via Tresspassing!! Then sold to whome ever to be published. Sounded like a lot of the locals were not too happy with the "hunting ethics/tactics or lack of by some non locals with money". Just some opinions from a guy I work with who lives 20 miles from where the buck was taken. Great deer and I'm very glad for the young man who got the deer of a lifetime!!

That is not the new "World Record" I thought it was too, There is a story about it in thee new outdoors weekly. You can read about it on there web site. That is still a big derr. There will be rumors no matter what when a big buck is killed. I was around 3 years ago when a huge buck was shot by a muzzel loader hunter near Bemidji, There were rumors about it being shot on a feeder, at night from the road.
It is a good story, I missed him at 20 yards ( that still hurts)
Then he ran over the ridge and I heard one shot, He came running back and died 60 yards from me. If someone tells me how I can psot a photo of this deer. I think it is probably a state record with muzzle loader but the guy didnt want it scored and didnt care? He had no idea how big it was when he shot, he just new it was a buck.

A co worker just printed off an interview with D. L. the father of the young man who shot the deer. Doesn't go into much detail and no pictures of the current deer. If you search the net you can find the interview.

According to Outdoors Weekly, Nov 7 issue:

"The photo of the boy and his deer shown here (above in this post)was actually harvested in a 500-acre enclosure by a boy with multiple sclerosis and is not eligible for the Boone and Crockett official world record book." Am guessing "enclosure" means game farm or something similiar.

The actual alleged record deer was shot by a 15 year old Iowa kid and North American Whitetail has an exclusive contract with the family to publish the pictures and story first. The photos and story will appear in the January 2004 Edition of North American Whitetail.

Based on where Albia is, I'll bet that the kid is wearing a Iowa Hawkeye attire. Go Hawks!!!!

The do have a trail cam photo of the record deer taken in 2001-2002. You can see it at the Outdoornews.com in the news section, in an article titled "World record buck myths set straight."

This is a picture of the Supposed New World Record Deer the Albia Buck as it was know by, this picture was take 2 years ago. I guess the deer had something like 44 points pretty increadable especially for a 15 year old kid.

I read that there have been no pictures release of it after the kill yet. But, I found this picture on the Boone and Crockett web page and the had an article that pretty much confirmed the this monster had been taken.

      So dad, my bro, n I started fishing at 4pm last Sunday (crane). We caught 21 eyes, 4 sauger, n a 10in. Perch. We were fortunate enough that 12 eyes, 2 saugers n the perch were keepers. We also had the pleasure of throwing back two 18", a 22" and a 24" eye. We ended up fishing  for 5 hours. There were 2 thing we noticed that affected r fishing. (A) the lack of water ment lack of current which is fundamental the first 3 weeks of opener. (B) we seen 14+ eyes surface as well as 6-7 mayflies in the boat. Getanet I hate 2 state the obvious but from my quick look at kab u weren't even close to a spot I would think would be good this time of year. The best 4 types of spots the first 3 weeks of eyes opener in vnp r current, current, current, n sand. I've never fished kab this time of year but I know Sullivan bay/ash river is the best spot.

      Guessing u aren't from the 218. I went 2 the Virginia n Chisholm lucky 7s today n both locations had shiners.

      I used to fish the City lakes quite a bit many years ago.  Calhoun was a go to for me to have a fun bass fishing day.  I can’t tell you how things are now but back then (1990’s) I’d not only expect numbers but at least one 5 lbr each outing.  My best from there was 6lb 4oz caught on a 10 inch black/blue Power Worm.  We used Carolina Rigged lizards as our second best bait.  We lost some of those to the muskies though. Lake of the Isles was not as good to us but had more interesting Muskie stories than Calhoun did.   Heck, is it even called “Calhoun” anymore?

      On our way up for the weekend.  Live or frozen shiners?   Best place to get them?  thanks

      Any reports from Frazier bay at all? I’m thinking of making a run in my little boat the narrows. I’m itching to catch some walleye for the frying pan and think heading east may be my best bet but want to see if there’s any info out there before I make the 45 minutes trip!

      Saturday opener was great on Basswood for 3 of us.  Well, bitter sweet.  We brought 10 fish home; but due to the slot of only 1 over 20 inches we had to let 10 fish go.  Some  big eyes that afternoon

      it definitely is a good area! i appreciate the advice i''ll definitely get out there a couple times to give it a try. Yes, i do have a kayak. My friend is always talking about st johns.   Side note: Has anyone ever had a chance to get out to Calhoun or Lake of isles?  I heard the bass are there in fairly large size..
