This time of the year always brings back early mornings driving to the deer camp when all of the sudden “Da Thirty Point Buck” song comes on the radio. It seems at this time of the year the song tends to get quite a bit of airplay. Ever wonder who sings the song?
Da Yoopers is a traveling comedy show and musical group from Ishpeming, Michigan. They are known primarily for their humorous songs and skits, most of which center on life in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. The band’s name includes the term “Yooper,” slang for residents of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, and the use of “da” instead of “the” is typical of the Yooper dialect. Da Yoopers has released twelve regular albums and two compilations, all on their personal label, You Guys Records. The group’s members are Jim Bellmore, Lynn Bellmore, and Jim “Hoolie” DeCaire. They are most well-known for the song “Da Thirty Point Buck” off of the album “Bananas at Large.” Check out their website here for any up and coming news.
