I caught this fish in 1992 when I was 7 years old. As you can see the fish is almost as big as me. It was a 36" Northern Pike and I caught it on an $8 fishing pole from Big Wheel. I was up in the UP on vacation when I caught it.
The buck above on the left I shot with my bow in 2002 during the last week of bow season. I shot it with my Browning bow that I have only had for 2 years. This was my first deer that I have ever killed. It was a 6 point with a 13 1/2 inch spread.
The buck above on the right I shot this season in 2003 on opening morning of gun season. This buck I currently am having mounted. This buck is an 8 point with an 18 inch outside spread. This is my first buck with a gun and it was a big one.
This is a collage of my past fishing experiences and me at the taxidermist in Schoolcraft.
