If you only knew how much paper work is done on whitetail deer from the day they are born. Not likely they would turn them lose and risk losing their license. It could be easily detected if it was the farms deer because they would have some form of identification on the deer. Either a tag or an implant. Inspections happen each year by Conservation officer and then a Federal Vet Inspection.

I suspect when those farms have bucks that aren't living up to their expectations they turn them loose rather than paying for food & vet expenses and risking having one of them breed a doe or injure a "prettier" buck in the pen.  And yeah, in that area those cast-offs probably trump most of the natural herd but certainly raise a potential for risk of CWD transmission.

i think there are enough 'additives' to insure they are massive. i know this to be true in a lot of farms raising deer for antler profit. it's just not natural for a 2 year old deer to reach +200"
