    Default Short hunter or huge moose.

    Taken off of facebook. Anyone know if this is real or photo shopped?

    Its real I believe. I saw several other pictures of it on the ground. I'll have to see if I can find them.

    That looks like an 80" plus bull

    I was thinking the same thing. Looks out of proportion to me.

    It's a dandy bull. Nothing photo-shopped. 72". A friend of a friend's bull. It's all about the angle of the photo in the original picture.

    72" is a dandy indeed. Congrats to him.

    Apparently both - a short hunter and a huge moose.

    I agree that something doesn't look quite right. Looking at the skull cap as it's strapped to the backpack. I have a similar backpack, and that would be pushing 18 inches between the pedicles.

    If that rack is 6 feet tall, then that man looks to be only 4 ft tall from that angle. Must be some trickery with the camera.

    No tricks,,, I used my Iphone. he's a short man at 5' and a hand full of inches. I was sitting on the ground behind him and pulled out the phone. The sun was coming up over the Tok mountains with the sun breaking threw the clouds and thought it looked cool.

    The thing I got to ask is who the F---K goes on someone's Facebook and steal's pictures to start bulls---t debates. Mind your own business. These were put on Facebook to be shared with friends and family. Not copied and pasted to some forum to start some kind of photo shopped debate. This is why I've never posted a picture on here and most people don't.

    I will ask for this to be removed

    Ha! You're actually serious? You put up a picture of a moose rack on FACEBOOK (of all places) and don't expect it to be seen anywhere else on the internet........especially on an Alaskan hunting forum? Amazing......

    I didn't go on his facebook and steal this photo. I don't know the guy's name. The photo came to my page.

    And there is your issue. Your FB friends and family have open public accounts and when they post/comment/like your stuff their action is published across all of FB. If you do not want the entire world to see something, never place it on FB, because that is the sole purpose of FB.

    not just FB, but on the internet in general. the instant you upload it, doesnt matter to where... someone somewhere will share it and it will belong to the internet forever (once you upload it, you pretty much give up all rights to it).

    If you don't want it all over the internet keep it on the refrigerator.

    No intentional trickery. All small cameras today, including the ones in "phones" use some degree or another of parabolic lens; that which exaggerates the size of things closer to the lens relative to things farther away from the lens.

    Trakn,

    I for one want to congratulate you guys. I would love to hear the story behind this but probably never will now.
