One of the first memories I have of deer camp was waking up as a young child to the yellow shine of gas lights in our old cabin and the sound of my uncle singing along to some strange song on the radio in an absurd accent. He walked around the room hollering about a Turdy Point Buck, and I just stared in wonder and confusion. Little did I know that it would be me singing along to this song for many years to follow.

Of course this tune is the classic, “Da Turdy Point Buck” and if you haven’t heard it, you are in for a treat. Below is the classic song, straight from Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. If this doesn’t bring a smile to your face, I don’t know what will….Except maybe a Turdy Pointer…

Good luck hunting to all of you heading to the woods with boom sticks for the first time this year!
