We were fishing on vacation in Maine when my husband caught and released this lake trout. It sufaced a few minutes later about 50 feet from the boat. A bald eagle was coming down for it when my dog, Hunter, jumped in and retrieved it for us. He loves to go fishing and swimming.
First deer with a bow
My first deer with a bow. Scored at 200 4/8. Was a Unicorn deer.
While on a hunting trip in Alaska my husband, Charles Buckel, shot his first moose. It weighed 1600 pounds with a spread of 64 14 inches. His brother Paul, who resides in Alaska spotted for him as in some spots the bruch was taller than they were. This was the first time my husband ever went to Alaska or moose hunting. Not a bad trophy for a first time.
Another nice turkey photo
Used a Browning BPS 10 guage to down this Tom. Recoil from that gun was BRUTAL so traded for Benelli SBE. Been happy ever since. Like this one many of my pics are taken using a timed shutter release and a tripod.
What its all about.
Hanging out on the lake after a day of fishing – the sun is starting to peak through the clouds in God’s country up north. Very few people take the time to appreciate the finer things in life, that snapshot is a little reminder of what we look forward to each spring when the snow melts.
South Texas battlin’ bucks
First afternoon of 3 day hunt, got to photograph buck fight, my rifle was not even loaded at this time
Payne and I went pheasant hunting, but no luck. We covered some great grown around Lincoln NE
Giant Mexican Needlefish
I caught this beauty in the sea of Cortez while fishing near La Paz Mexico. I later learned that this fish was within a few pound of a world record.
The Alaska Oil Pipeline
On a moose hunt in 1985 I took a pic of the pipeline near Delta Junction, AK. This is facing South toward the Alaska Range at the 562 mile marker.
Texas hunt, management buck
The fish of my life… so far… from the Bob Marshall
Facing the sunset
I came across this lady on my way home from work the other day. We were both admiring the sunset. She didn’t seem too bothered by me.
This buck was standing off the road last summer, was able to get a picture of him. Though he had great potential.
Small Mouth – Eagle River, WI
I caught this big old pig on a float trip down the Eagle River, WI. He fought so hard that he was towing the canoe all the way around the lake.
