I shot this ram in 2009 in the Brooks Range. My partner and I both shot rams in the same spot, it made for quite the pack out.

I shot this ram on a solo hunt in the Alaska mountain range in August 2010. He was the fifth ram I have killed, but my first hunt by myself. I was flown in, and shot him 17 miles from the air strip, then had to pack him out.

It was a rainy cool day, and we spotted this bull moose in a draw. We moved in on him and I was able to get a good shot off at 200 yards or so. I am very happy with him, and he is just over 45 inches wide. He has 9 points on one side and 10 on the other. I am only 15 years old but way excited that I was able to shoot this moose.

After two hours of hunting with his dad, and an agonizing pass of a smaller buck, Joey decided to try rattling. This 9-pointer came to within 125 yds. Joey shot him with his 270 loaded with reduced recoil ammo. The buck was an exceptionally big deer weighing over 200 pounds. Though the day started with cold and frustration, Joey later exclaimed ” this was the best day of my life.”

We just made it to the top of the hill to our spot on Oct. 18, 2009. It had started to rain when we spotted this buck. It was foggy and hard to see, he stood still for about 15 minutes, still as a rock and then finally he heard something and he turned his head and my dad and I said “its a buck” at the same time. I closed the deal, at 167 yards.

America’s favorite fish, this red snapper went back into the ocean after a quick photo op. Stringently regulated by federal regulation for several years, many experts consider the red snapper population to be healthy and in no danger of overfishing at this time.

This hefty golden tilefish was caught east of Fort Pierce, Florida on the Last Mango. The comercial quota is being downsized anually, chances of catching a ‘nice tile’ are growing. But keep an eye on NMFS’ South Atlantic Fisheries Management Council’s plans to regulate recreational sport fishing to drastic extremes.
