Liam Hodgson 15, son of Beaver Island’s Shamrock Bar & Grill owners Eric and Dana Hodgson, shows off his first deer, a two-and-a-half-year-old eight-point. Liam made a perfect shot that dropped the whitetail in its tracks. Pictured (below), also on Beaver Island, is Bob Turner, who took this big buck with 11 antler points on state land. The buck was aged by the Beaver Island Wildlife Club’s expert Jacque LaFreniere at three-and-a-half years old.
