Berkley Stephens
We apologize for the delay in getting this posted. I was super busy last week and missed the early email. Berkley was a great shot and always had something to say and a story to tell. I always enjoyed watching the man shoot and he had a couple of sayings that I will never forget.
One saying he offered was "you boughtem you oughta breakem" and shooting would be a lot more fun if you would keep your gun still. I hope to dig through my archives and post some pictures of Bekley in his prime.

NC has a lost a great trapshooter and our prayers go up for family and friends during this time. I have posted a few pictures of Berk at the Joe Nimer Memorial at the Rockingham Gun Club in 2008. Go to "The Lodge" scroll up until you find "Finished Careers" and mash on Berkley Stephens.
