    I recently listened to the Deer Hunter's Podcast where they did a five part series on the Mitch Rompola Buck controversy. In episode 213, they interview a taxidermist who really analyzes the photos on the internet of Rompola's bucks and he believes they are all fakes. Here is a link to the podcast. You can do a Google search on "Mitch Rompola Whitetails" to look for yourself and follow along with his analyses. I agree with his analysis except I believe that the rack is not 100% real.

    Haven’t heard that name in years. Those pics were shady as hell back in the 90’s and Mitch himself was a special kind of stupid. I had my mind made up shortly after I saw them and read the story. Smelled like sardines then and still does today.

    I didn't listen to the podcast.

    His name has been dragged through the mud, if the racks were real, why would you not clear your name and have them x-rayed? Like Rausch said, a special kind of stupid.

    Its telling that in this video that there is no blood to be seen anywhere. I've never seen a lung shot bow kill site with no blood and I've seen a lot of them. Staged.

    Now that I'm retired I guess the old business name has less meaning.

    Did they shut the thread down on MS forum?

    shouldnt even be worth discussing. if its real he should prove it. he is as irrelevant today as he was back then.

    that buck is as real as the guy who claims to have killed two bigfoots

    And yet here we are in 2022 and there’s nearly 2000 new posts on the topic on a sportsman’s forum and you’re pretty quick to weigh in too.
