Imagine having to make up hunting stories to get your ego stroked.

He says to my dad, who was the local Lutheran pastor and Weelborg's were parishioners, "Fred, we need to talk." John proceeds to show dad that the buck in Dane's photo is the exact same buck as the one on the cover of Bowhunter and then shows dad where a replica can be purchased from his taxidermy magazines. Very long story short, Dane bought the replica, shot a dink, sawed the skull plate off the dink, took photos for the paper, then the taxidermist mounted it for him. My dad took the evidence to Wayne and showed it to him while literally in the shadow of the mount. His parents were absolutely flummoxed and they forced Dane to write a public apology for the local paper for claiming to have shot a monster whitetail. Dane's parents are great people. Dane was a bit of a sketchy fellow in his younger years. I haven't seen him in over 20 years, so I hope he's turned out better after that little public tar and feather job. Even before the internet you couldn't get away with this crap. And you sure can't now.

Dane, must’ve changed his name to RoundOak.

The taxidermist who mounted the replica antlers didn’t realize they were not real?

I hunted with a dentist from Atlanta that bought a 11-point buck at the deer processor and claimed it as his own. I was looking through the big buck photos at the deer cooler and there was someone else with Clyde's buck. Once he was caught he fessed up and said he was only screwing with us. He's a great guy, excellent cook, just not much of a deer hunter.

The taxidermist who did the mount was the only other guy in on it and ordered the replica. He took the photos for him as well. Our friend who exposed it is a different taxidermist

I'm not much of a deer hunter either. But I damn sure wouldn't claim someone else's as mine. I'm damn happy with what get because I did it on my terms.

I agree.

Well this all really sucks, he seemed like a good guy who was blessed with some incredible land.

THE true test of character, and right now he’s incredibly flawed, would be to at least come back and apologize / own up to the lies. But my hunch is he drifts off never to be heard from again. Sad on many levels.
