  • Doc's son JohnI shot this buck at a distance of 3 feet. I was sitting with my back to the boulder, just behind the barrel of my gun, on the other side of the brush pile. The buck was walking from right to left and was taken about 2 feet to the right of where it is now laying. (2004, 8-pointer)
  • Doc's son John NordbergFor a large number of reasons, I believe this buck is the grandson of my 2003, 8-pointer. It has a very interesting, tall rack. (Bunyan's Marble Trail, 8-pointer 2012)

  • Doc's son KenThis is one of my favorite photos. It is Ken with a handsome 9-pointer. This buck was taken with Kevin Stone's assistance, using Doc's "Gentle Nudge" technique. Ken's third buck for the wall. (1994, 9-pointer)
  • Doc's son KenAnother photo of that 300+ pound buck. (1994, 9-pointer)

  • Doc's son KenYes, this is a different buck! While the photos are almost identical, carefully compare the geometry of the racks. While most likely these two bucks were brothers, they are different. With Doc's assistance, this buck was taken behind camp using Doc's "Gentle Nudge" technique. (1998, 8-pointer)
  • Doc's son KenHe didn't get another 8-pointer in 1999, so he felt compelled to take this "little one" in 2000! Quite nice for a six-pointer! (2000, 6-pointer)
  • Doc & son KenA nice photo of Doc with his son Ken. Ken saw three bucks from that tree stand that morning. This one ended up on the wall. (2001, 10-pointer.)

  • Doc's son KenHe was walking down an old logging trail with his son Ryan. Out came 2 does, and then this guy. Ken had it down before his son could react. (2010, 8-pointer)
  • Doc's son KenThe biggest buck in the family so far. (This is Ken's sixth nice buck for the wall.) Let me emphasize, the average hunter only gets one mature 8-pointer in 30 years. Why not learn to hunt like this hunter did? There is no coincidence this is one of Doc's sons. (8-pointer, 2012)
  • Doc's son Ken & grandson RyanIn 2012, Ken actually ended up getting three 8-pointers! (That is his son Ryan on the left.)
