WATERFOWL HUNTING WINNER

Justine Piner
Davis, North Carolina
In her early teens, Justine Piner began hunting waterfowl along the North Carolina coast with her father, a local hunting guide. "I have loved the outdoors for as long as I can remember, but when I saw the excitement that hunting brought my dad, I really began to appreciate it," Piner says. "Our family has hunted for generations, and he passed on that passion to me, as well as a deep respect for the animals we hunt and their habitats."

Piner's winning photo shows her brother-in-law and a family friend shooting from a blind while hunting redheads and scaup near her hometown of Davis. "I decided to submit this photo because it captured so much in one picture," Piner explains. "It was a beautiful afternoon and the birds were flying well—it really shows the essence of what it's like to be duck hunting.

"There always comes a time when we're out in the field that I have to decide whether to shoulder a gun or look through the lens of my camera. I am certainly glad I chose the camera on this particular hunt."
