Don’t believe everything you see on the internet, especially if it’s of a hunter bragging about his unbelievably big buck.

This is the age of apps that can do what Photoshop can do, so it’s easy to alter photos. And that’s exactly what one young hunter did.

A young man from North Carolina said he had just beat a state record for a hunted buck, scoring at a whopping 210 inches — the state record was 176 inches. Nick Davis took a photo of himself with this buck, then circulated the photo to several media outlets, saying he just broke the record.

But when people saw the photo, they didn’t believe it was real, so they started calling the authorities. And after getting a bunch of calls saying there was no way that rack was that big, wildlife enforcement officers started an investigation.

But the investigation didn’t take long — David confessed within a week that he had faked it all.

Here’s what happened…   Joey Thompson, Certified Scorer of the North Carolina Bowhunters Association, holds the antlers of the monster buck Nick Davis claimed to have shot (photo via Pinterest) Davis killed a buck in Surry County, North Carolina, but then attached antlers he got from a farm in Pennsylvania.   He plead guilty to one count of illegal hunting, had to pay a fine of almost $800, and authorities suspended his hunting license for two years.   Not only is this dishonest, but it’s that he went to such lengths to do this. Did he have to saw off the antlers of the buck to attach the fake antlers? How did he attach the antlers? How much time did this take him?   What do you think? Let us know in the comments!
