Any new updates on the controversial and unusual circumstances surrounding Rompola and his questionable buck. I have been searching and nothing comes up other than past reads.......thanks
I am pretty sure that Myles Keller does not care about Rompola`s fake buck.The biggest debates came from the fact that it was thought Mitch had had the deer brought here from a Missouri Game farm and the reason that he would let anybody touch it was due to the fact of his controversy with the Mich DNR and Commemorative Bucks of Michigan. I also heard that he had issues with the Pope and Young and Boone and Crockett clubs.
I also heard that he was offered a huge lump sum from Myles Keller not to pursue the World record issue.
But those were all speculation and rumors.
If I had shot it, I would have been parading that thing all over town. But thats just me. LOL
Thank you for the correction. It was Milo Hansen not Myles Keller. I was thinking of one and typing another.I am pretty sure that Myles Keller does not care about Rompola`s fake buck.
Milo Hanson had a problem with Rompola claiming to have the new WR but refusing to offer proof.......just like every other WR entry is required to do.
Yes, Rompola has/had issues with both P&Y and B&C.........and that has nothing to do with the fact that he made his sponsors look really bad with the way he handled the situation. Rompola was offered by at LEAST 2 different people to have the x-ray cost covered, yet he refused to accept the offers. Rompola did at one point state that he did indeed have the rack x-ray`d, but only to prove to himself it was legit? He refused to show those alleged x-ray results to anyone.
It has been so long ago that I cannot remember the exact details, and it is not worth the time to research Rompola`s old stories, but one of his Michigan records was admittedly killed with a field point tipped arrow, and he claimed to have used a certain broadhead on another one of his record book deer.......but the first prototype of that broadhead was not made until 2 years AFTER the deer was killed.
Rompola has issues.........
Rompola signed a binding contract and legal papers issued from Milo Hansens lawyers to never again up this rack or even mention it as long as the Hansen Buck is the Worlds #1. They pretty much made the man put up or shut up and in the agreement, if Rompola tries to profit or advertise his deer in ANY way..... he must submit the antlers for official scoring and x-rays.Any new updates on the controversial and unusual circumstances surrounding Rompola and his questionable buck.

The main difference in the people who just "didn't care" to have there's scored is that they didn't come out right away screaming they shot a world record then decide nah I don't want to prove it. It is an obvious fake. I can't believe the Rompola fan's aren't here screaming there stories about him yet.Thank you for the correction. It was Milo Hansen not Myles Keller. I was thinking of one and typing another.
The basic thing is is that its all up to the people that shoot them as to whether or not to have them scored and entered. Ive been to Iowa several times and have seen some pretty impressive bucks that the owners just didnt care to have them judged. Any rack that your proud of is a trophy in the eyes of the owner.
At least it was a real deer. He just wanted the guy to prove it since his record was in question because of Rompola's claims. It's pretty simple. If it really is the record, just let someone x-ray it. If not, then shut your mouth.The buck may be real or fake I don't know,what I do know is that Rompola has shot a ton of huge bucks before and since the buck in question. I find it amusing that Milo Hansen is so sue happy of anyone threating his record buck that was run down with a pickup.
