could be a world record
If you shot it with a bow submit it to the pope and young website and if you shot it with a rifle submit to the boone and crooket website. I know i would if i shot a couse that big

I dont think it should count as world record if it was harvested on reservation land because not just anyone can go hunt on reservation land so that would be unfair to everyone els.But hopfully the reservation has its own records for animals harvested on reservation land.

I agree with in not counting
It shouldn't count.. i agree with this statement from galvardo..."I dont think it should count as world record if it was harvested on reservation land because not just anyone can go hunt on reservation land so that would be unfair to everyone els.But hopfully the reservation has its own records for animals harvested on reservation land."..... Also the hormones they use to beef them up a bit is just plain unfair.

Disagree on not counting/Great deer!!!
Just because the Deer was on the reservation should have no bearing as to whether or not it's a world record, Boone and Crocket, or Pope and Young. If your argument about the reservation was to have any validity then we also have to remove all the records that were taken on Private Property that you and I are not allowed to hunt on. You are able to hunt the reservation you just have to pay the price for the tag. I would agree that the average guy can not afford to buy this type of tag but that should not take anything away from the animal being a record. I did not know that they were using "hormones to beef them up". Did you read this somewhere? I have seen alot of the feed that is given to whitetail on foodplots in the midwest like Pikes county Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Ohio, etc... but have never heard about any hormones. The fact that if this whitetail was to walk off the reservation and then it was to be shot would make it a world record versus just being shot on the reservation should have no bearing. Maybe we should remove all the animals harvested on Private Property. WHAT A BUCK FOR THE RECORD BOOKS!

Does it really matter ?
I have never hunted reservation land and I dont know how they tag their animals after harvesting. That sure looks like an AZGFD tag to me. However,if the hunter harvested this beauty with fair chase then why should it matter ? There is no difference in the elements,terrain,nor the challenge in hunting these great coues whitetail. If he was high fenced then thats different, but I have never seen a high fence in that area. There is rumor that the white mtn apache res was in fact feeding and injecting there elk herd with some type of hormons but again thats just hear say. Regardless of the facts this is a great deer and I would love to hear more of the story of the hunt. I dont think its a world record but its up there and if any organazation recognizes it we will have to hear the story. We would all love to see more pics of this deer if you have any. Congrats to you on a true Coues STUD !

Just email me your name and address and I will mail you one. They are free :)
Go to old MEX and they are all entered. You can pay to hunt a deer that acts like someones pet. Even if you agree or not this was a major accomplishment for this individual. I also don't think this person's accomplishment should be used as a tool to generate intrest in ones web site. Even if permission was granted. This is not what this site was intended for...

From my understanding boone and crocket and pope and young have thier own reservation records. And yes it would be unfair to the rest of us who hunt on public lands because I have been told by natives who guide on reservation lands that even though the tag is expensive you still have to pay to hunt on the land and purchise your hunting licsense and tag! You dont have to pay to hunt on public land so that is what makes it unfair to poeple who shoot big animals on reservation land as to public lands.
