My family and I were at Mille Lacs lake for Labor Day weekend and the sunset was beautiful. My brother was fishing off the dock and I came out to take some pictures, and it all just fell into place.
Jack Russell vs. Sturgeon
Our 16 lb dog trying to drag a 100 lb sturgeon to the bank.
Fox in the culvert
This fox had denned up in the culvert on the lane at our farm. He ran in as we drove by so we stopped and waited and he eventually peeked back out.
This was my largest halibut caught during my stay at the Tanaku Lodge in Elfin Cove, Alaska (65 mi. West of Juneau). The fish weighed 155 lbs. It was “only” the 3rd largest barndoor captured during the week of my stay. Others weighed 158 and 240 lbs. respectively. What an Anglers’ Paradise! Oh yeah, and the salmon fishing wasn’t bad either.
Even if you don’t shoot one… you should still buy one to support it.
pope and young jack-o-lantern
What can I say…I love whitetails! Happy Halloween!!
Natalie, with her brand new “Pink Rider” BB gun.
Thought I would send you this cute photo of my granddaughter, Natalie Beams, OKC, OK. The first day she went deer hunting with her new pink BB gun. The early morning rise got the best of her! The hunting clothes were handed down from brother, Reagan, but her hunting style clearly resembles that of her PaPa.
Dove hunt/Rattlesnake ate the dove
A friend of mine sent me this pic. The Rattler was eating the one of doves shot during their dove hunt.
My Groomsman Cake
Everything on my cake was eatable minus the 3 plastic lure cases. The reels, the fish, and even the flies! The real trophy of the day was my wife but this was the runner up.
These are my wife and my new tattoos. Can you tell where our loyalty lies.
Alligator At Feeder
These alligator at feeder photos are from a email from a hunter in Bryan Texas and are titled Jackson County Deer Cam Pictures, Wanna go hunting in Texas? How would you like to go out in the morning in the dark and run into this! I havent seen these here so I thought I’d share. the third pic clearly show a 6-8 foot gator under the feeder

Alaskan Arctic Char
This fish was one of several char caught that day. This one was the largest of five that were 30 plus inches!!!
double drop monster
This bad boy showed up on the trail cam a couple weeks ago. He has about 10.5 days to live because 09/26/09 means archery season is open. Perhaps I’m optimistic but I gotta hope.
Canal Brown Trout
Fishing with my 2 year old son in a canal near my house. Caught this 24″ and a 23″ brown on a spinner. He had a blast and was proud of our fish.
I got a Squirell
I was walking to my trail camera on september 14th 2009 so that i could check it. I opened up my moultrie trail camera, turned it of, and simply switched chips. When i got to the first picture of this cat i was a suprised. After a series of 10 or 12 photos of the cat chasing the squirell and rolling around, this one came up. He finally caught his prey.

That’s the Spot
Little to the left…That’s it! Our trail cam caught this guy in the heat of some intense scratching.
Hunting Camp Monster!
I had a wonderful surprise when I checked the hunting camp game cam. This is a 9×8 mule deer with around 6 kickers. It is my dream buck, and I might actually get a shot at him!

Once again an amazing day fishing with my dad and uncle. We slammed ’em.
Rocky The Whitetail
This Is Rocky You Could Say The Towns Pet. He Is So Used To People You Can Hand Feed Him. He Has Been Around For Almost 3 Years. This Is Him Munching On Some Pizza. Note: He Likes And Only Eats Plain Cheese
Oregon Bull trout
Went out with my father-in-law outside of Bend OR where he owns a fly shop. Chased the illusive Bull Trout aka Dolly Varden in their sea-run state. These big char are pretty wiley and would tear off small rainbows at the end of your line. Took this chub on a streamer. Broke my rod in the process. Awesome fish…
Boston Harbor Striped Bass
Took the kids fishing yesterday and had an awesome day in Boston Harbor. The fish were biting all day! Caught over a dozen stripers and bluefish. Very fun.
Hooked this nice cutt on a dry Adams

A nice way to start the 2008 duck season. We had set up in a great spot on a small creek, and they just kept swarming in. We limited in about fifteen minutes, but it was worth getting there an hour early to set up!
world record buck!
this buck was shot 45 min from where i live and my taxadermist did the mounts! awesome deer!
Canadian Goose Colossus
Brothers and newphew limited out in northern South Dakota goose hunt. You just have to be careful that these guys don’t fall on you because they are HEAVY.
