That deer looks like a deer that Carlos Hermosillo bought 2 years ago. If its the same deer I would be interested in hearing the story he's telling people about it. I held that rack the day he bought it and he was asking me what he thought it scored. Regardless, its a GIANT!
It would have been pretty easy to look at the tag and read the date killed. Nobody did that? There have been numerous and more frequent tales of high fence hunting down there in Sonora, I wonder if this is one of them. At that price it sounds like it to me because the avg guided hunt down there is around $8-$10K.
