I remember seeing and hearing little bits about this, but not being a hunter, I never really paid attention.
To understand ourselves it is important to understand our ancestors, and a part of them, and their heritage, lives on in us today.
To the world the American Indians seemed like a forgotten people when the English colonists first arrived and began to occupy their lands. I want to give special thanks to my cousin, Mary Hilliard, for her assistance and encouragement in researching and preparing this book. Wherever possible I have tried to find at least two sources for the genealogical data, but this has not always been possible.
I have also found Franklin Elewatum Bearce's history, Who Our Forefathers Really Were, A True Narrative of Our White and Indian Ancestors, to be very helpful. It is certainly possible that such a record may contain errors, but it is also very fortunate that we have access to this record as it presents firsthand knowledge of some of the individuals discussed in this book. 8 Newcomba€? Cpt. Sometime before the colonial period, the Iroquoian tribes began moving from the southern plains eastward across the Mississippi River and then northeasterly between the Appalachians and the Ohio River Valley, into the Great Lakes region, then through New York and down the St.
Though they were neighbors and had similar skin color, these two groups of Indians were as dissimilar as the French and the Germans in Europe. Federations, as well as the individual tribes, were fluid organizations to the extent that the sachem was supported as long as he had the strength to maintain his position. Belonging to a federation meant that an annual tribute had to be sent to support the great sachem and his household, warriors had to be sent if he called for a given number to go to war, and strictest obedience and fidelity was demanded.
Some of these federations had as many as thirty member tribes supporting their Great Sachem, although many of these tribes would be counted by more than one sachem, as any tribe that was forced to pay tribute was considered as part of that Great Sachem's federation.
Any member of the society who dishonored himself, in anyway, was no longer worthy of the respect of his people.
When viewing the typical Indians of America, one would describe them as having a dark brown skin. They wore relatively little clothing, especially in summer, although the women were usually somewhat more modest than the men. The English resented the fact that the Indians wouldn't convert to Christianity as soon as the missionaries came among them.
The various tribes of New England spoke basically the same language and could understand each other well. There are many words used commonly in our language today that were learned from these New England Indians: Squaw, wigwam, wampum, pow-wow, moccasin, papoose, etc.
Today there is little doubt that prior to Columbus's voyage, the Norsemen sailed to the coast of North America early in the eleventh century.
We do not have a record of all of the European contact and influence on the Indians in the early years of exploration because the greatest exposure came from the early European fishermen and trappers who kept no records of their adventures, as opposed to the explorers. In 1524, Giovanni da Verrazano wrote the first known description of a continuous voyage up the eastern coast of North America. As the fur trade became increasingly more important to Europeans, they relied heavily on the Indians to do the trapping for them.
Another problem with which the Indians had to contend was the White man's diseases for which they had no tolerance nor immunity.
In the spring of 1606, Gorges sent Assacumet and Manida, as guides on a ship with Captain Henry Chalons, to New England to search for a site for a settlement.
In 1614, Captain John Smith, who had already been involved in the colony at James Town, Virginia, was again commissioned to take two ships to New England in search of gold, whales or anything else of value.
Dermer wanted to trade with the local Indians of the Wampanoag Federation and asked Squanto if he would guide them and be their interpreter.
Derner was given safe passage through Wampanoag land by Massasoit and soon returned to his ship. When the Pilgrims left England in the Mayflower, their stated intent was to establish a settlement on the mouth of the Hudson River, at the site of present day New York City. The Pilgrims returned to the Mayflower and, after many days of exploration, found a more suitable location.
On March 16, 1621 the Pilgrims were surprised by a tall Indian who walked boldly into the plantation crying out, "Welcome! The Pilgrims gestured for Massasoit to join them in their fort but, he in turn, gestured for them to come to him. When the amenities were ended, the English brought out a treaty they had prepared in advance, which specified that the Wampanoags would be allies to the English in the event of war with any other peoples and that they would not harm one-another; and that when any Indians came to visit the plantation they would leave their weapons behind. After the ceremonies were ended, Governor Carver escorted Massasoit to the edge of the settlement and waited there for the safe return of Winslow. Part of Massasoit's willingness to make an alliance with the English must be credited to his weakened condition after suffering from the recent epidemics which left his followers at about half of the strength of his enemies, the Narragansetts. In June of 1621, about three months after the signing of the treaty, a young boy from the Colony was lost in the woods. When the English could not find the boy, Governor William Bradford, (who replaced John Carver, who died in April) sent to Massasoit for help in locating the boy. That summer Governor Bradford sent Edward Winslow and Stephen Hopkins, with Squanto, to Pokanoket (Massasoit's own tribe, on the peninsula where Bristol, R.I. From this trip of Winslow's, we learn more about the daily life of the Indians in this area. Massasoit urged his guests to stay longer but they insisted they must return to Plymouth before the Sabbath.
Less than a month following this visit, Massasoit sent Hobomock, a high ranking member of the Wampanoag Council, to Plymouth to act as his ambassador and to aid the Pilgrims in whatever way they needed.
Hobomock and Squanto were surprised at what they heard, and quietly withdrew from the camp to Squanto's wigwam but were captured there before they could get to Plymouth. Although the Narragansetts and Wampanoags were historical enemies and continually feuding over land, they did not usually put hostages of high rank to death. Normally, treason was punishable by death and Massasoit would certainly have been justified in executing Corbitant for his part in the plot against him but, for some reason, Massasoit complete forgave him.
Their first harvest was not a large one but the Pilgrims were.happy to have anything at all.
During the winter, a rivalry developed between Squanto and Hobomock, the two Indians who now lived continually at Plymouth.
According to the treaty he had signed with Plymouth, they were to turn over to him any Indians guilty of offense. In June and July, three ships arrived at Plymouth with occupants who expected to be taken in and cared for. In the winter of 1622-23, Governor William Bradford made trips to the various Indian tribes around Cape Cod to buy food to keep the Pilgrims from starvation. Next, Standish went to Cummaquid (Barnstable, MA.) where Iyanough was Sachem of the Mattachee Tribe. Thinking that Massasoit was dead, they went instead to Pocasset, where they sought Corbitant who, they were sure, would succeed Massasoit as the next Great Sachem. Winslow describes their arrival, where the Indians had gathered so closely that it took some effort to get through the crowd to the Great Sachem. Since the Pow-wow's medicine had not produced any results, Winslow asked permission to try to help the ailing Sachem.
Their second Thanksgiving was combined with the wedding celebration of Governor Bradford and Alice Southworth. Because of Massasoit's honored position, more was recorded of him than of other Indians of his time.
Massasoit most likely became Sachem of the Pokanokets, and Great Sachem of the Wampanoags, between 1605-1615. The second son of Massasoit was Pometacomet, (alias Pometacom, Metacom, Metacomet, Metacomo or Philip.) Philip was born in 1640, at least 16 years younger than Alexander. The third son, Sunconewhew, was sent by his Father to learn the white man's ways and to attend school at Harvard. When his two oldest sons were old enough to marry, Massasoit made the arrangements for them to marry the two daughters of the highly regarded Corbitant, Sachem of the Pocasset tribe. The tribes of Cape Cod, Martha's Vineyard, Nantucket, as well as some of the Nipmuck tribes of central Massachusetts, looked to him for Military defense and leadership. Following the plagues of 1617, which reduced his nation so drastically and left his greatest enemy, the Narragansetts of Rhode Island, so unaffected, Massasoit was in a weakened position. In 1632, following a battle with the Narragansetts in which he regained the Island of Aquidneck, Massasoit changed his name to Ousamequin (Yellow feather) sometimes spelled Wassamegon, Oosamequen, Ussamequen.
In 1637, the English waged an unprovoked war of extermination against the Pequot Federation of Connecticut, which shocked both the Wampanoags and the Narragansetts so much that both Nations wanted to avoid hostilities with the feared English. After hearing of the death of his good friend, Edward Winslow in 1655, Massasoit realized that his generation was passing away. As Massasoit's health began to decline, he turned more and more of the responsibilities over to Alexander who was a very capable leader and who was already leading the warriors on expedition against some of their enemies. Massasoit was succeeded, as Great Sachem, by his son Alexander, assisted by his brother, Philip. The younger generation saw, in Alexander, a strong, new leader who could see the danger of catering to the English.
Both Philip and Weetamoo were very vocal in their condemnation of the English and word of their accusations soon reached Plymouth. Together, Philip and Canonchet reasoned that it would take a great deal of preparation for such a war. Got it from HEREThe StoryAuthor's Notes: The following story is Mitch Rompola's first-hand account behind the amazing chain of events in his three-year quest that lead to him bow harvesting his mega-buck. I also remember that Mitch may have signed something with the current record holder, Milo Hansen, stating he would not enter it in the record books but that's just from my memory 8 years ago.At any rate his scouting and time put in on the 1st Article was interesting to read. At first I was very skeptical of this record as it was a family tradition passed down for many generations.
She was very fond of her Grandmother, Freelove, knew all about her and stated on several occasions that Freelove's Mother was Sarah Mauwee, daughter of Joseph Mauwee, Sachem of Choosetown, and not Tabitha Rubbards (Roberts).
Massasoit was the Sachem of this tribe, as well as being the Great Sachem over the entire Wampanoag Federation, which consisted of over 30 tribes in central and southeastern Massachusetts, Cape Cod, Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket. Welcome, Englishmen!" It was a cold and windy day, yet this Indian, who introduced himself as Samoset, Sachem of a tribe in Monhegan Island, Maine, wore only moccasins and a fringed loin skin. Unlike many previous articles on Rompola that focused on negative speculation, this author offers you an inside look at Rompola the deer hunter and the incredible depth of his passion for pursuing big whitetails. The yellowing on the antler could easily be from the pic, as I've had odd colors and shadings show up on some of my fish pics. She obtained her copy of Zerviah Newcomb's Chronical from Zerviah's original diary, in the hands of Josiah 3rd himself. Mitch opens his complex world of bowhunting whitetails not to boast of his accomplishments, but to pass along 40 years of whitetail wisdom to help you, the reader, better understand the keys to successfully pursuing world-class deer.Insurmountable OddsOur lives represent nothing more than the results of statistical probability. We had Whitewater Gate, Travel Gate, File Gate, Zipper Gate, and China Gate just to name a few. Bearce's Great-aunt, Mary Caroline, lived with Josiah III and Freelove Canfield Bearce for several years, listened to their ancestral stories, and made her own personal copy of Zerviah's diary supplement. Lawrence to what is now known as Lake Champlain where his party killed several Mohawks in a show of European strength and musketry. But not all!In the hunting world we also had a major scandal which I have appropriately named Rompola Gate. Armed with only a recurve bow and undaunted confidence, he waded into a cattail marsh to take the biggest deer ever arrowed in Missouri before 1958. Mitch topped his 153-inch monster five years later by arrowing a 206-inch non-typical when he was 14.
It would be cool for Michigan to own the World Record whitetail, but only if it was real and ethical, not a fake or phony. And by the time he reached 18 and left home for Michigan, he had tagged three record-class whitetails.Thrown into a foreign environment of hunting the cedar swamps of northern Michigan, Mitch realized the odds were against him now.
The hunting world is no different.The Rompola controversy started back on Friday, November 13, 1998.
It does seem wierd though how many big bucks were running around his hunting area, I mean is that really possible?
So he set out to topple the obstacles of probability through an understanding of the deer he hunted.Even as a teenager he knew secret to bowhunting bucks anywhere hinged on a solid foundation of understanding through scouting. So he waded into the tangled cedar swamps scouting endlessly until he knew the whitetails as well as they knew each other. While the rest of society, including many a wanta-be expert hunter, went about their daily lives of work, family, recreation, friends and watching television, Mitch roamed the woods for miles, backtracking deer through the snow and logging their patterns.Spending an estimated 200 to 300 days per year scouring the countryside and relentlessly interpreting deer sign, Mitch recorded everything related to the sign he saw. At that score, the buck surpasses the current world record typical buck by an even 5 inches. He further told them that Massasoit, the Great Sachem of the Wampanoags, was at Nemasket (a distance of about 15 miles) with many of his Counselors.
They contained every scrap of information including; rubs, scrapes, trails, sheds, sightings, how deer interacted and reacted to other deer, to other hunters, wind direction relative to movements, patterns relative to terrain, all the way into the psychology of why particular deer did what they did when they did it. THE REASON BEING THAT IN HIS OLDER YEARS SHLOMO HAD MARRIED MANY WIVES AND HAD MANY CONCUBINES AND IN ORDER TO MEET THEIR SPIRITUAL NEEDS, SHLOMO HAD SET UP GROVES AND ALTERS TO THE FOREIGN ELOHIM OF HIS MULTITUDE OF FOREIGN WIVES, AND ALONG WITH THE UPKEEP OF THE SPLENDOUR OF HIS COURT AND KINGDOM AND HIS GROSS SELF-INDULGENCE THIS COST A LOT OF MONEY AND HARD LABOUR, AND UNFORTUNATELY HIS PEOPLE HAD TO MAKE PROVISION FOR THESE, AND THOSE WHO FELT THE MOST HARD-PRESSED WERE THE NORTHERN TRIBES.A HE HAD STARTED OUT WELL, WITH EARNEST, SINCERE AND DEVOUT HEART TOWARDS YAHWEH, SEEKING DIVINE GUIDANCE, WISDOM AND UNDERSTANDING IN ORDER TO RULE HIS PEOPLE ARIGHT. The years of mounting log books with their associated maps and aerial photos only hinted at the compilation of understanding that grew behind the dark, predatory eyes of Mitch Rompola.Simply by spending 100 to 1000 times more effort scouting than the average hunter, Mitch vastly skewed the odds of success in his favor. I do wish I would have took better pics, but man, I was just shocked and pumped on how big that thing was. THE PEOPLE, DISCOURAGED BECAUSE OF THE HEAVY BURDENS IMPOSED ON THEM BY HIS FATHER HUMBLY PETITIONED RECHAVAM FOR AN EASING OF THE HEAVY TAXATION AND WORKLOAD.
Armed with both his vast knowledge base and refined hunting skills, Mitch entered a life-consuming pursuit of big deer that perhaps only one in a million hunters would consider let alone commit their life to. He claims to have harvested the buck 10 days later.Rompola was using a bow set at about 58 pounds. But then again, there's the vital role of the deer and its habitat in the equation, and ultimately connecting both hunter and deer. That's where probability appears to have fallen into the hands of fate.Urban expansion forced Mitch in the summer of 1994 to look for a new hunting spot. 5, AND REDEEMS HIS WIFE FROM THESE PAGAN CULTURES, AND AS CHAPTER 6 vs.1-3 DECLARE, IT WILL BEA "AFTER 2 DAYS," IE. He wasn't happy with the long drive to a remote area owned by friends, but he was encouraged by all the components the new spot offered for harboring big bucks.Irony or fate also changed another facet of his hunting that year.


Several minutes later he climbed down from his tree stand and even though he had heard the buck go down, he went home to get his video camera, without first going to see the buck.Writer Eric Sharp of the Detroit Free Press has written numerous articles on Mitch Rompola and his controversial buck.
A long-time skeptic of deer scents, he tried a new concept in deer lures, a synthetic scent invented by a local hunter, Kevin Kreh. His first article was dated November 20th, 1998 just seven days after Rompola supposedly killed his mystery buck.
IN THE MILLENNIUM IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING THE 2 DAYS.A SURELY, WE ARE NOW LIVING IN THIS 3RD.
MILLENNIUM DAY, (2001- And Onwards)A YISRAEL, REJECTING THE PROPHETIC PICTURE OF HOSHEA, THEIR FINAL PROPHET, THEN FALL UNDER THE MISHPAT OF YAHUWEH. But Kevin had killed big deer over it so out of curiosity I tried it and was shocked at what happened. The deer literally tore the place to pieces during late spring when they were totally out of the rut.
Let’s take a close look at all the facts and see what you think.Over the years, there have been several scams in the whitetail world.
Back a number of years ago, Austin hunter Bill Day removed the antlers from a buck he shot in Mexico. The new spot offered a remote blend of twisting ridges that dumped in a vast cattail marsh, an ideal security hideout for reclusive bucks.In addition to his usual scouting and logging tactics, Mitch began to develop a new technique of patterning bucks using the synthetic scent.
Through trial and error, he learned how to create synthetic trap lines that helped him key in on specific spots where he might ambush a big buck.
Canadian outfitter Lloyd McMahan took the antlers to Mexico.After magazine and newspaper articles reported the story of Bill Day’s trophy buck, an Alberta taxidermist recognized his stolen antlers. Out of 50 to 100 synthetic scrapes I found that some barely got hit while others got hit hard. McMahan was sentenced to two years in prison under the Lacy Act.The other Texas case involved B. And they began to pay off when during late archery season that year he tagged a 125-class buck from another area over one of his Buck Fever scrapes.Near the end of the 1995 season, he began to understand the complex patterns of big bucks in the new spot. One snowy day while heading into his stand, he caught a glimpse of what the area had to offer.
Morrow then entered the buck in the Texas Big Game Awards and signed an affidavit that he had killed the buck in Starr County, Texas. An article in a magazine was Morrow’s undoing and he also was brought to justice.There was a whitetail scam in Alabama.
Then I saw where it had dug up the dirt and scattered it on top of a foot of snow while making a scrape. Several months later, another man noticed a photo in a advertisement in a magazine of this new state record buck.
Suiting up like a Navy Seal ready for a mission, Mitch donned his scouting outfit and headed for the remote swamps and ridges.
I wear strictly rubberized outerwear including rubber gloves, boots, chest wader liners, and a rain suit top.
CENTURY IS AS UNRELENTING AS EVER AS NOT ONLY THE MOSLEM MIDDLE-EAST DAILY CALL FOR THEIR EXTERMINATION, BUT EVEN EUROPEAN NATIONS, AIDED BY THE UNITED NATIONS, VENT THEIR ANTI-YAHUDAH VENOM AS IF THEY LEARNED NOTHING FROM THE HORRORS OF NAZI GERMANY, AND EVEN T.V. I simply can't leave any scent when I'm out there walking around and setting up my synthetic scrapes.
Obviously, if they didn’t admit their prank, they were just as guilty as those scam artists previously mentioned.The above scams were attempted using real antlers. There have also been several situations where antlers have been fabricated using parts of other antlers.
They put up their one stand, toss out their bait and they think they're pretty well set up to hunt. Then they go in and hunt it during the wrong wind currents without proper scent suppression and they're being patterned by the deer.
He soon learned their recluse bedding hideouts and the narrow travel corridors where they crossed creeks and ridges. But the most important revelation came when Mitch fit the pieces of the puzzle together relative to how the bucks approached and left their bedding areas. Certified measurers have been fooled by not being able to tell the difference.The following photos show examples of fabricated antlers. IN THE STREETS OF GLASGOW TODAY, UNDOUBTEDLY, THEY TOO WOULD BE SUBJECT TO THE SAME TREATMENT AS THE STREET-PREACHER.A A IRONICALLY, SCOTLAND IS ONE OF THE VERY FEW NATIONS UPON EARTH IN WHICH THERE HAS NEVER BEEN OFFICIAL GOVERNMENT POGROMS OR PERSECUTIONS MADE AGAINST THE JEWISH PEOPLE. AND THE SCOTTISH PEOPLE ON THE WHOLE HAVE ALWAYS MADE THE JEWISH PEOPLE WELCOME IN THEIR NATION THROUGHOUT THE PAST 2.000 YEARS EVEN THOUGH ENGLAND HER SISTER NATION SEVERELY PERSECUTED AND HELD OFFICIAL POGROMS AGAINST YAHWEH`S CHOSEN RACE, INSOMUCH THAT THOUSANDS OF JEWS WERE DRIVEN OUT OF ENGLAND WHEN THE ROMISH RELIGION HELD SWAY DURING THE REIGN OF KING EDWARD 1st IN 1290. IT SEEMS, BY THE UNFOLDING OF THIS BEAUTIFUL STORY, THAT THIS DEEP FRIENDSHIP HAS BEEN CULTIVATED AND NOURISHED ON BOTH SIDES OVER MANY LONG YEARS, AS AVRAM, THE CHILDLESS MAN IN THE STORY, REVEALS BY HIS WORDS OF APPARENT FAMILIARITY, A DEEP BOND OF CLOSENESS WITH HIS ELOHIM. By mid-summer they had grown into raw patches of torn earth yet things of beauty to a buck hunter like Mitch. It’s easy to see how even an expert can be fooled.As for Rompola, I believe that he fabricated his antlers.
But his biggest surprise at the buck's response to his synthetic scrapes came unexpectedly when he was checking them one cool July afternoon. Back several years ago, it was common practice to use Potassium Permanganate to stain antlers.
THUS WE SEE THAT YAHUWEH IS PROMISING TO AVRAHAM THAT A MULTITUDE OF GENTILE NATIONS WOULD OWN AVRAHAM AS THEIR FATHER. Kneeling down, I zoomed in on the deer with my video camera when sudden it put its ears back and another big buck walked right into the viewfinder.
Finally, the big 8 point clubbed the wider racked 10 or 12 pointer in the nose and the fight ended with both bucks disappearing into heavy cover. Now more than ever, Mitch knew the area held at least two dandy bucks.As fall colors hinted at the coming season, Mitch kept refining is synthetic scrape setups and concentrating on the ones that offered him the advantages of scent and sight. If they have been hanging in a smoke filled room they can be quite discolored.If you examine the photo of the Rompola buck you will notice a yellow tone on the three longest tines.
The same stain or color appears where all of the tines join the main beams.Another thing that is very suspicious is the distance between the burrs.
They actually travel the way I would to be elusive enough to avoid or detect hunters during daylight. I have personally measured the distance between the burrs on most of the 84 trophy heads in this collection. NOT ENTIRELY, FOR GRAIN OFFERINGS WERE AN ACCEPTABLE SACRIFICE AS WELL AS THE BECHEROT OF THE FLOCK..
These big bucks aren't about to travel a quarter mile or more to a food source in the daylight. The widest distance I have found between the burrs on any of these trophy bucks is 3 ?”.The Rompola buck is said to have a 38” outside spread. Using this dimension as a basis, it is very easy to calculate the distance between the burrs. On the Mitch Rompola buck the distance between burrs comes out to 4 ?”, a full 1 ?” greater than any buck in the Legendary collection. So on September 18 he timed his drive, and as he drove down a two-track near his prime area, he spotted two deer walking along a ridge. That would mean that the skull on the Rompola buck was almost 50% wider than any previous world record buck.In the field photo of Rompola’s buck there is a very suspicious indentation in the skull just right of center.
This along with the droopy ears and the blood in the deer’s right ear are all clues that the original antlers were removed and replaced with the fabricated antlers. Examination of the skull plate would be very interesting, but Rompola has taken steps to make sure that never happens.In the video shown on “Michigan Out Of Doors”, Rompola is shown holding the antlers after they were removed from the buck. THUS, WHETHER WE BRING A GRAIN OR BURNT (FLESH) OFFERING TO YAHWEH THE MOST IMPORTANT PART OF THE OFFERING IS THE ATTITUDE OF A LOVING, WILLING, GENEROUS AND CHEERFUL HEART.A YAHUSHUA WAS BOTH OUR GRAIN AND BURNED OFFERING POURED OUT FOR US AND HIS ATTITUDE WAS ALWAYS THAT OF A FULLY SUBMISSIVE, LOVING AND GIVING SPIRIT. It is impossible to see the actual skull plate or for that matter any portion of the skull. When it turned and looked away, I saw clearly how wide the rack was and thought I was seeing things. What do you think that reason was?Recently, Rompola announced that he had the antlers re-measured. DAY AND THEREBY BROUGHT INTO THE COVENANT, YAHWEH RECOGNISED HIMSELF AS BEING YAH`SAC`S ELOHIM, IE. Obviously he could not see it because of the way it has been totally encased.Let’s go back to the video that was aired on “Michigan Out Of Doors”.
It would appear that either the anti-hunters have disguised friends calling themselves pro-hunting writers, or some writers are so pitifully spiteful about information they lack the professionalism to obtain -- or worse, that they're content to defame the image of hunting in their tabloid attempts to sell a few copies of their publications.So why did Henry Ford invent the Model T? Or Leonardo da Vinci paint the Mona Lisa?The same reason Mitch Rompola harvested the biggest typical whitetail ever taken with a gun or bow.Romantics call it destiny. Many suspicious things show up in this video.One of the first things is that the arrow was sticking out about 18” or so. ABSOLUTELY NONE.A WHAT OTHER ANCIENT LANGUAGE APART FROM HEBREW HAS COME TO LIFE AFTER SUCH A LONG DEATH .AND NOW UNIVERSALLY SPOKEN IN THE NATION OF YISRAEL AND AMONGST MANY IN THE NATIONS OF THE WORLD? Just before season, he set up a stand over one his hotter synthetic scrapes that had grown to over 12 feet across that was being hit by several good bucks.
His first evening over the scrape gave him a chance any hunter would envy.Hooves in the leaves snapped Mitch to attention and he readied for the shot.
Even if it had not, the deer probably would have pulled it out or broken it off while traveling the 70 yards Rompola said it went before it collapsed and died.
An arrow sticking out of a deer like this usually means that the death scene was staged.When a deer is dying there is always violent kicking of it’s legs as it expires. It appears that the deer had been carefully placed in this exact position.Another point that appeared in the video was that the cape was wet while the body was dry. Just like 40 years earlier on his first deer hunt, Mitch Rompola heard the clattering of legs in the cattails. He then removed the cranium by skinning back the skull and sawing off the existing antlers from the skull. After 15 minutes, the deer had moved within 30 yards and Mitch readied for the shot of lifetime. HER NAME IS CHANGED TO `SARAH` MEANING QUEEN AND IS AN APT NAME FOR A MOTHER WHOSE DESCENDANTS WOULD BE KINGS AND PRINCES AND THE NAME-CHANGE NEEDED TO BE MADE TO REFLECT HER NEW STATUS AND RELATIONSHIP IN THE COVENANT., IE. The cape would have to be washed to remove the blood before any field photos or video could be taken.The video shows the buck laying on its right side. The ear probably was washed out earlier however blood seeped out of the cranium and down into the ear as the deer was laying on the ground on its right side.There is truly no other explanation for the right ear being so bloody.
This was overlooked by Rompola and is truly one of the main clues to why I believe it is a scam.The droop of the ears is greater then any dead deer I have ever seen a photo of. But suddenly the massive buck tensed and threw back its head as the huge 9-point Mitch had passed opening day charged off the ridge.
Mitch stood stunned as the 9-point dipped its head, eyes wild, nostrils flared, and chased after the wide racked buck. This would allow the ears to droop in the manner shown in the photograph.The only other field photo of a deer that I have seen with ears drooping this bad was Rompola’s 1985 buck. Let’s get back to the Rompola Gate issue.Recently I had the privilege of meeting with two of the top taxidermists in the Midwest. They noticed that the skull was not of proper configuration but noticed something even more important. As the buck finally emerged from the thick pine boughs, the string's twang broke the silence.
They said that the skin had not been reattached in this particular spot.There are two other points I would like to make. He actually had 10 points; 9 points typical with a 2 ?-inch sticker point on one of his back tines. As a result of making these rubs, bark from the trees gets embedded in and around the bases of the antlers. AND EPHRAIM YISRAEL KNOWS THAT HE COULD NOT, WOULD NOT KEEP THE KADOSH THINGS AND SO BECAME CAST OUT AND THUS HATED YAHUDAH??? Spending countless hours the rest of that season dogging the odd shaped track, Mitch learned more of the buck's secrets without avail.
AND YET IT IS MOST IRONIC AND MARVELLOUS IN OUR EYES, THAT THOSE TEN TRIBES OF ANCIENT YISRAEL WHO REJECTED ALL THE THINGS OF YAHUWEH, AND ALL THE KADOSH THINGS THAT YAHUDAH AND AVRAHAM HELD DEAR, AND WHO THEN BECOME LE-GOYIM, GENTILE NATIONS POPULATING THE WHOLE EARTH WITH THE VERY BLOOD OF AVRAHAM, WERE THE VERY ONES WHO IN THEIR HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OVER THE LAST 2.000 YEARS HAVE BOWED THE KNEE TO YAHUSHUA HAMOSHIACH OF THE TRIBE OF YAHUDAH. He ended the 1996 season more committed than ever to tag the buck the following year.During that winter Mitch continued his relentless scouting and backtracking the giant 12-pointer. Perhaps this buck never rubbed his antlers on a tree.In the video there appeared to be a visible splice between the base and the brow tine on the left main beam. He learned where the buck set up its approaches to its bedding areas and revealed more locations where Mitch should setup morning stands.Again, Mitch continued to use his Buck Fever synthetic scrapes to help monitor the buck's patterns.
He also raked out places on the runways the buck was using to reveal certain repeatable patterns of how the buck traversed his domain.During the summer of 1997, Mitch began using an experimental scent dripper to dispense his Buck Fever synthetic scent.
The programmable dripper, made by a local friend and accomplished deer hunter Dean Broecker, allowed Mitch to scent up his main scrape without disturbing the site.
I believe this was done to conceal a visible flaw in the antlers.It has been said that there are three important factors that affect antler growth.
While checking on the dripper one day in late July, Mitch was greeted with one mighty welcome sight.
Of these, most biologists believe that genetics is without a doubt the most important of the three.The subject can be somewhat complicated. Naturally, if you have superior genetics but have sub par nutrition the antler growth will not reach it’s potential. On the other hand, excellent nutrition with poor genetics will not produce antlers of trophy proportions.
To produce white-tailed bucks with World Record antlers you must have outstanding genetics.Grand Traverse County does not have the genetics required to produce a buck of the size that Mitch Rompola claimed that he shot there last November. And upon returning from his annual hunt in Michigan's UP with friends in late October, he headed for his setup.When leaving his truck for the woods, Mitch usually sprays his boots with Buck Fever to help lay down a scent trail as he walks into his stand.
In the Commemorative Bucks of Michigan’s records for Grand Traverse County, there are only two bucks listed that have made the Boone & Crockett minimum typical score of 170.
But this Sunday morning he was anxious to get back to the site before sunup and didn't take the time to scent his boots then. Instead, he waited and put synthetic scent on his boots at the scrape site that had again been freshly hit.
After squirting scent into the fresh scrape and on his boots, Mitch walked over and climbed into this stand.Later in the grayness of first light, a blocky shadow drifted through the timber.


There are no non-typical bucks listed.There are no listings in any of the neighboring counties.
In the northern half of the lower peninsula of Michigan, there have only been eight Boone & Crockett bucks listed. The buck immediately picked up Mitch's boot scent and zeroed in on the trail, heading right for Mitch. He tracked my synthetic scent trail right to my stand like a bloodhound with his nose to the ground.

INTERESTING VIDEOS OPEN LETTER TO PRESIDENT OBAMA NAZI GENOCIDE PERSECUTION OF THE JEWISH RACE HITLER`S HOLOCAUST BLUEPRINT CHRIST KILLERS??? They went on to ask “What if” to every situation they could think of regarding Rompola’s actions. What if he fabricated the antlers, what if he had to go home to get the antlers, what if he reported his story to the media, what if he decided to hide from the world because his story got out of hand and what if the antlers disappear never to be seen again.
The hunter could still exhibit a replica at deer shows and attempt to elevate his position in society. Though he didn't get a clear shot, Mitch noticed the rack touch two particular branches on each side of the antlers. Naturally he could never let anyone inspect the fake antlers so they simply must disappear at some point. He returned the next day and measured the distance between the branches "They measured 34 inches wide and that's when I really knew how much wider he was than I originally thought. They suggested that when Rompola said he went home to get his camera that he actually went home to get the fake antlers. With the seasonal change in the cover and buck's pattern, Mitch moved into a ground blind that served mostly as an observation outpost to help him pinpoint the buck's new movements. That truly makes a lot of sense because like most hunters you can assume that he always had his camera with him while hunting.
Mitch sat one morning until after 9 AM and figured the buck wasn't going to show or had already passed through unseen. But as Mitch picked up his bow quiver and snapped it back on the bow, a haunting apparition rose from the nearby cover.
He had apparently bedded before I had gotten in there and I had snuck in without him hearing me. When you consider all of the controversy surrounding this deer and the fact that it may not be real, it could be embarrassing to list a fake deer in their records.Finally, one should examine who is being damaged by the Rompola Gate scam. With the scaled image, it didn't take a skilled measurer like Mitch long to tally over 200 inches on the buck's rack.In the winter of 1998 and entering his third year of patterning the buck, Mitch cautiously avoided scouting the buck's bedding areas. Though he was tempted to look for its sheds, he was afraid of tampering too much in the old buck's security cover and possibly scaring it off.During the summer of 1998 Mitch continued tending his synthetic scrapes and looking for some sign of the big 12-point.
One of the firms made a deal with Rompola a full year before Rompola announced that he had harvested the buck.
He stepped out on the two-track looking in the direction of my truck, looked down my way, then just walked over the ridge and disappeared.
HuffmanJuly 25, 1999Mother Goose would have a difficult time competing with Mitch Rompola and his associates on the creation of the biggest fairy tale (scam) to ever hit the hunting world.
Despite two other record-class bucks, a magnum 10-point and a wide racked 8-point that began hitting the scrape and following the patterns of the giant 12-point, Mitch focused on the one chance of a lifetime that had eluded him over the years.But terrain and wind at his prime setup seemed to work against him at every turn. I have spoken with several of the editors and their basic attitude is to simply let the story die.Unfortunately all hunting magazines did not take this stand. Deer and Deer Hunting featured a two-part story on the Rompola buck and the men who measured the antlers.
That's why I set up my synthetic scrape close enough to his bedding area that he could come out to check it. The principal portion of this two-part story was written by none other than Dan Bertalan, one of Rompola's closest allies.Bertalan tells of insurmountable odds.
Seventy-nine years passed from the time Jim Jordan killed his world record buck (1914) till Milo Hanson took a new worlds record buck in 1993.
Simply fabricating a set of trophy antlers rather than harvesting one by traditional hunting methods can drastically reduce the odds.In the June 1999 issue of Deer and Deer Hunting, Editor Patrick Durkin stated in his Editors Stump column that Rompola should be granted the assumption that he is innocent until proven guilty. I reminded Durkin that that assumption is normally used in association with a criminal trial. On its apparent date with destiny, the giant buck materialized from the thick cover and moved into the scrape. Without a chance to shoot directly to the scrape, Mitch again grabbed his camera and snapped a photo of the buck as it lifted its nose toward the synthetic dripper.
It is the hunter's responsibility to prove that his deer is authentic and that it was harvested in accordance with the club's fair chase standards. As Mitch looked through the camera viewfinder, he realized with a start that the buck was leaving the scrape, coming toward him. He put down the camera and grabbed his bow.Screened by the thick cover, Mitch waited until the buck paused broadside at 20 yards.
Hopefully the CBM (Commemorative Bucks of Michigan) will not list Rompola's buck in their records until he takes the steps to prove that it is real.We all know that Mitch Rompola could clear up the controversy by simply having the antlers x-rayed. Despite the decades of shooting huge bucks, all the times he had seen this giant whitetail and the focus of his life's energies for the past three years, buck fever began to nibble at the edges of his consciousness.He looked past the sprawling mass of antlers and focused on the spot behind the shoulder. The June 1999 issue of Michigan's Woods-N-Water News reported that the Michigan Big Game Hunter's Association has offered an additional $10,000.00 if Rompola will submit to a polygraph test and permit the antlers to be x-rayed and allow DNA testing. In Rompola Gate (part I) I reported many facts that I believe prove that Rompola's buck is a phony. There lay his arrow sticking almost straight down in the ground, clean as it had been moments before. The biggest single fact is the distance between the burrs measuring 50% more than any other whitetail buck ever.I pointed out in Rompola Gate (part I) how the coloration of the antlers is suspect. But as the early bow season drew toward an end, Mitch tried to quench the rising fear that he might never see the buck again once the crack of rifles filled the woods.On November 12, he slipped into an evening stand near the scrape where he had taken the now haunting photo.
The tines are no longer yellow and the Potassium Permanganate staining that was so obvious is now non-existent. It is also apparent that the cape used for the mount is not the original cape.Why were the antlers re-colored? Mitch tensed, but then lowered his bow when he recognized the 10-point and 8-point that often followed the wide rack.
They pawed around the scrape and glanced toward the ridges before disappearing back into the cattails. It was certainly apparent that Rompola felt there was something wrong with the color and for that reason attempted to cover some of the obvious flaws. Photograph of the original Rompola buck.Notice the yellow tone on the deer's right G2 and G3 as well as the left G3.
He was strictly a loner to the point of actually being shy He would hang around near the outskirts of other deer but never with them.
Also notice the brownish purple stain at the base of each antler and at the base of the main beams between the burrs and the brow tines. The photograph used on the cover of Deer and Deer Hunting is a dead giveaway that this is a bogus buck.
Only two days now until the crack of rifles filled the woods and sent the giant buck running deep into his dense hideout, or worse, maybe one of the gunners might get lucky and… Mitch pushed the unsettling though aside.
He parked his truck and headed for his stand.As fingers of light began to stitch the outlines of the marsh below and the ridges behind him, Mitch glanced down toward the scrape.
His dark eyes looked past the network of branches, wondering if the bucks had already hit the scrape.Suddenly, heavy footfalls on the ridge above gave him the answer. He barely got poised for the shot as the now familiar 8 and 10 pointers veered slightly around his stand and passed at 12 yards.As the two smaller bucks disappeared into the cattails, Mitch positioned his feet solidly on the stand as he collected his senses.
He stared at the hillside, his eyes locked on nothing in particular.Hooves carrying 300 pounds of buck announced what Mitch knew before he saw it.
Next came the sprawling tangle of antlers through the timber toward him, supported remarkably by one very familiar deer following the same trail as the other bucks had used minutes before.Mitch stood poised, bow up, focused yet again on the spot he wanted to hit, pushing back all other thoughts except the shot. The buck's head passed behind a large tree and Mitch made the crucial movement of drawing his bow unseen.
Onward came the deer, looking bigger than life as it passed at the scant 12 yards.The buck stepped clear of the tree. The hit was unmistakable this time, solidly in the vitals with a resounding crack as the broadhead hit the far shoulder.Mitch blinked as if to be sure it wasn't all a dream. But he knew he wasn't dreaming as the impact of his three-year quest surfaced and his knees became too weak to stand. He sat down, replaying the shot over and over in his mind until his legs could again hold him. Wobbly, he climbed down and inspected the hair and splashes of red where the buck had bolted.Finally, Mitch shook himself free from the trance of what he had done and headed for home. He knew it was going to be a long day and he needed to share the news that would soon rock the world of hunting. Plus I needed to let her know I was okay because we have a pact that if I'm not back by a certain time, she would come looking for me. He also knew the magnitude of what he had just accomplished and wanted to get his video and still camera to document the recovery.Mitch returned with his recovery gear and began by recounting the story from his stand to the recording video camera. Just beyond a large scuffmark in the leaves, Mitch saw the fletching of his arrow sticking up over a small rise. The photos he later took, with his characteristic somber pose, only hint at the feelings beneath.
They're just the most beautiful and magnificent animals, and there's nobody who respects them more than I do. One of the blades of the Gladiator head had broken where it had lodged in the far right shoulder.For the better part of the day, Mitch muscled the huge deer, a body length at a time, over the remote ridges. Finally, with exhaustion tapping the last reserves of his adrenaline, Mitch slid the deer up a special loading ramp into the back of his truck.As any proud hunter would do, Mitch showed his deer to a few close friends that evening. But by late afternoon, the carloads of curious strangers, were quickly growing out of control.By Monday morning, Mitch's phone began ringing non-stop. The media had got a sniff of the story and swarmed upon him relentlessly from across the country. By Tuesday, the media onslaught hammered Mitch into seclusion.Mitch knew enough about scoring big deer to know that his buck could possibly rewrite the history books when the time was right.
You can clearly see how the skull plate has been totally encased in a material similar to Bondo. Suddenly, what could had been scores of positive wildlife management and hunter impressions to the public, turned into a rampage of negative speculation that blackened the eye of Mitch and hunters everywhere.Much of the irresponsible media remained indignant and actually blamed Rompola himself for his poor portrayal in print. Didn't the fool know that once he shot the big deer, the entire three-year story, the nearly 50 years of his private life, even the unscored rack belonged to them -- to the world? What a fool Mitch was to even think he could maintain some shred of control or sense of direction over his life.Dismayed at the whole affair, while unrelated tragic events transpired in his personal life, Mitch withdrew even further into seclusion. But because of my past bowhunting success and the fact that I hunted this deer for three years, they end up becoming jealous critics. But in the end, now that I've told the whole story, how people judge me and what I've done, is now up to them."So why did Henry Ford invent the Model T? I was told that his deal with Custom Shooting Systems, a bow manufacturer, was actually made months before he claimed to have killed the buck.
Bow: CSS (Custom Shooting System) Signature Series Compound, 34-inch axle to axle, set at 58 pounds with Adjustable Pro-stop set to 30 inches draw with letoff adjusted to 75 percent. Arrow: Gold Tip 5-layer Laminated Graphite shaft, 5575 spine, full length 32 inches, crown dipped.
Who knows what action the companies who are paying Rompola endorsement fees will pursue.In Eric Sharps article of April 9, 1999 in the Detroit Free Press, he reported that Kevin Kreh of Hawg Ltd.
Kreh said that he has put pressure on Rompola to have the deer measured and entered at least with CBM.
He further stated that he stands to loose his creditability, his business, his home and everything he has worked for. If he has lost hundreds of thousands of dollars as he said, then why hasn't he started legal action against Rompola? You bet!How bad have the other companies with Rompola endorsements suffered from Rompola's refusal to have the antlers authenticated? If Kreh's firm has been damaged financially then I should think that the others have suffered also. It's been said that Dan Bertalan handles public relations for Rompola and these various firms.
Could it be?Several outdoor writers have stated that no one has offered any proof that Rompola did anything wrong while hunting the buck. You be the judge as to these facts offering proof of the deer being bogus.Rompola said that he shot the buck at 12 yards with a bow set at 58 pounds.
The arrow did not pass through the deer, in fact there was approximately 18" of arrow still sticking out of its midsection.
Rompola said that after he shot the buck and after a short wait, he went home to get his camera even though he heard the deer go down. The antlers were shown on Michigan Out Of Doors thirteen days after the buck was harvested. One of the three measurers told Boone & Crockett that he was not able to inspect the skull plate. No whitetail buck has ever grown a skull with the distance between the burrs being anything close to this distance.These facts leave many questions in one's mind.
Rather than speculate on these answers, wouldn't it be great to hear Rompola provide the answers. A partial list of questions could be as follows:Why did Rompola encase the skull plate in a hardened material less than two weeks after the deer was shot?
