Bennington’s Karson Hobby – Call of the Wild Athlete of the Month Presented By Commercial Tire

By Matt Browning

When it comes to being an outdoorsman, it all started when he was six for Bennington’s Karson Hobby.

“I started hunting when I was six years old,” Hobby said. “My dad got me started hunting and fishing.”

One of the best things about being outside for Hobby is the tranquility and peacefulness. It offers him a release that he cannot find anywhere else.

“I like being outdoors because it is relaxing to me and I don’t have to stress,” Hobby said.

With hunting and fishing being such a family activity and pastime, it is no wonder that some of his favorite memories were with his family.

In fact, Hobby has two distinct memories – one from hunting, the other from fishing – that stand out to him.

“One of my favorite duck hunting memories is this last season when me and my dad (Brad), sister (Kennadi), Trevor, and my dog, Dally, Teal hunted at Jamestown for opening day of teal season and we all shot our limit which is six birds a person,” Hobby said. “One of my favorite fishing memories is during 2020 when my dad and I would go fishing two to three days a week catching lots and lots of crappie.”
