First day, first hour, first rooster
Goose’s first day hunting the Dakotas with uncles Crosby and Chief. One hour in, a patch of cover 1/2 mile behind an abandoned farm, Goose at about 8 months pushed this young rooster up in front of my shotgun. Talk about it all coming together….good breeding, some training, and plenty of encouragement from his fellow bird dogs.
Owl catching dinner
This awesome picture was caught on my trail cam. Not sure if this is a bob cat or a house cat.
Hammerhead Attacking Tarpon
After fighting tarpon to the boat the shark comes out and begins to chase tarpon before we’ve released him. Tarpon darts to trolling motor and snaps line, for 15 minutes the shark attacked the tarpon never landing a bite because the tarpon would stay on its head where the teeth could not touch it then hid under boat.
I caught and released this giant striper, my new personal best, with my good friend Dan Dougherty while fishing the Susquehanna Flats area of the Chesapeake Bay in early April. We ended the day with about 25 stripers and three 5+lb. largemouths, on light tackle in shallow water. (Tagged “saltwater” because it’s a tidal area) – Matt Morgan
hey little guy
Two big bulls at my salt lick.
Bears Face to Face
These two black bears are staring at each other. Bears will fight over food.
Delaware River COW
My girlfriend caught her first keeper striped bass today and called for smiles, it went 44″ and weighed in at 39 lbs! After a quick picture, she was promptly released to head upriver, drop her eggs, and hopefully fight another day!
A Wet Drag
With all the rain this Fall, my father reaching his stand required an hour walk in water over his knees, breaking through ice with hip boots on. Fortunately for him he shot these two on the same morning. Unfortunately, that meant I needed to strap on the hip boots and help drag. However, with a little ingenuity, we drug the canoe out, piled the bucks in and floated them to higher ground.
Might need a dentist for that hooked jaw
Fishing a large lake ontario tributary in western ny for migratory brown trout
Passing good bucks pays off BIG
162 inches of GREATNESS after 15 years of shooting OK bucks pays of after I pass 6 on the last day with 2 hours left!
Big Lingcod caught with Captain Rob of Classic Alaska Charters.
Rut in Upstate New York
I never did see him again after that morning on Thanksgiving. Hopefully he’ll still be around this year to bow hunt him. I’m hunting on a small farm way up north along the Canadian border and bordering Vermont across Lake Champlain. As far northeast in New York you can get. Really beautiful up here in the fall with the Adirondack Mountains and many lakes and ponds.
my son and i where fishing off block island when i landed this 40lb striper wich was to big for my son to hold up
NJ State record Tiger Musky?
On Fathers Day I Caught this 46 inch Tiger Musky on Greenwood Lake NJ using a Mega Strike spinnerbait while fishing for smallmouth. We estimated the weight to be around 28-30 lbs. The current State record is 45 inches and 29 lbs. I took a few pictures and then released. It was only later that my friend had told me about the current record. Oh well, now we know! Lol
Lake Trout: Salcha Alaska
One of the many lakes I enjoy winter fishing at during my ice season Near my home in North Pole. This Laker was caught at about 80 feet and hit like a frieght train. Couple of photos, and a good release. Measured the fish at about 36 inches in length.
First Coyote .
10 year old Hunter Shmon with his first coyote. The coyote was called in with a Fox Pro electronic call, the one eye coyote came right to call on a full run and Hunter made the running shot with his 222 Savage at 50 yards. That’s one happy boy.
PA Black Bear up close and personal
Caught this curious bear snooping around just outside Wellsboro, PA.
I harvested this Whitetail in Wisconsin at the 2012 Youth Hunt. This trophy buck was coming down to feed on our food plot, and I took him at about 105 yards. What a start to my 4th year of hunting!
YOUNG BUCK ON THE RUN
Taken in early November by Erick Edwards just outside of Woodlands, Texas
My First Big Fish
While fishing off the dock at a cabin my grandfather built in Georgian Bay, Ontario Emily landed this nice smallmouth. She caught it on a worm and a 2 foot plastic Dora The Explorer fishing pole. I can’t count how many fish that pole has pulled in since then, but none of them matter as much as the first!
