Boys, I've got to tell you that the photo doesn't look Photoshoped. I have the ability to look at the original file, and the legs and feet are clearly visible to the ground. If it's Photoshopped, it's one of the best jobs I've seen.
Here's the deal, though: We don't know if it's a NC deer or not. We just have to take bagboy's word for it, just like everyone else's. Why hasn't he defended the picture? Maybe he hasn't had time to log on, or perhaps he's not into fighting on forums.
We certainly don't want discourage anyone from posting, so let's tone it down a bit. I have to say that I write stories all the time about monster bucks that weren't seen at all even though cameras were set out all over the property, so I don't find it all that unusual that the buck hasn't come back. But who knows: Bagboy might have other images of the deer.
If you're out there watching, bagboy, come on back and talk to us. And we definitely want to see the photo if you bag this bad boy (pardon the twisting of your alias).
