My First Dove Hunt

One by one the truck stopped and dropped hunters off at different locations throughout the farm. Since this was my first dove hunt, I sat with Lynne Green, the marketing director of Syren, the line of Caesar Guerini shotguns designed exclusively for women. I took my most successful shots as birds flew toward me, descending on the field. As hunters returned from the fields, the cleaning began. One of the rooms contained a wall of numerous small drawers. Each drawer contained pieces and parts for all the different shotguns in the Guerini lines. Instead I saw neat, organized work benches and white walls. Many of the shotguns on the benches came in because of Caesar Guerini’s PitStop Program. Caesar Guerini My trip to the Caesar Guerini shop left quite an impression. When I hunt again with one of these beautiful shotguns, I’ll have an even deeper appreciation for what went into making it.

We quickly began scanning the skies.

The unseasonably cool weather for September made the experience all the better. Doves flew non-stop the entire time from all directions. I took my most successful shots as birds flew toward me, descending on the field. Within a few hours many hunters reached their bag limits of 15 birds each.

Dove-Cleaning

As hunters returned from the fields, the cleaning began. Lynne made quite an impression when she stepped right up to the tailgate of the truck and dug right in. Caesar – a beautiful yellow lab that hunts with his human, Wes Lang (President of Caesar Guerini) – watched in…
