“I am Conservation”

Brian Bernskoetter of Columbia started dove hunting two years ago, but has been a hunter of other game since he was 10 years old. “I think the best part of dove hunting is anticipating where the doves are going to come from next,” said Bernskoetter. “They keep you guessing so you have to be prepared for any shot. And, when the hunting is really good, you don’t have enough time to reload between birds!” Bernskoetter will usually try to go hunting three or four times a season. “We usually just go to conservation land because they do a good job of attracting doves.” —Photo by David Stonner
