OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThe posts and picture said: “30-point monster killed at our Georgia hunt club. That is the biggest rack I’ve ever seen in GA.”

Another guy added: “One of the new guys in our hunting club killed this out of my tower stand last year!”

Well, that would be difficult since this amazing buck was shot by Bill Crutchfield in Maryland 12 years ago. This is fact, as I have interviewed Bill and posted on this giant several times: the 28-point, 268 1/8-inch Crutchfield titan is one of the biggest whitetails ever killed in Maryland, and on the East Coast.

Lesson: This is just but one example of rumor bucks you see all the time on Facebook, Twitter, etc. Enjoy the magnificence of these animals, but reader beware!
