    Can anyone confirm the claim that a new world record antelope was taken during the 2002 hunting season near Kiowa Colorado?

    Photoshop?

    Where did the photo come from?
    The horns look strange to me
    kinda fuzzy and off color with a
    feathered edge. The tips are nearly monochromatic
    with no light and shadow visible.
    I am skeptical. :scrutiny:

    I saved the pic to my hard drive and opened it up in Photostyler and zoomed in. I would say almost definitely a fake. Besides, I've seen a lot of big goats and they never looked like that one.

    I was hoping that someone from Colorado would be well aware of a goat like this being taken and could confirm or deny it.

    I know it would be hugh news in Wyoming if a monster like this was taken.

    We have little to go on at this point other than to say "What an antelope?" We have been informed that the buck was taken in Unit 105 near Kiowa, Colorado. It has yet to be entered into the Records Program. We'll post more when we know more.

    UPDATE: Trophy Watch has learned that the image of this buck was computer enhanced. Maybe we should start a new category – typical, non-typical and pixelated?
