Hunter Bergo to be remembered with 3-D archery shoot


Mon, Jul 25th, 2016
Posted in Chatfield Features

When 10-year-old Hunter Bergo passed away in an ATV accident on Easter weekend earlier this year, entire communities mourned with his family. One group in particular that was impacted by Hunter’s passing was the archery community.

It was no secret that Hunter Bergo loved archery and being outdoors. He often went on hunting and fishing trips with his dad, Ryker Bergo, with whom he was very close. Hunter was also a diehard shooter. Some of Ryker’s favorite memories with his son were their experiences hunting together. “Hunter just wanted our time more than anything, not things,” he said. “We want Hunter’s life to make others’ lives better by helping people to make every second count with each other, because you never know when you won’t have another second together.”

When Ryker heard that Brad Stephans was planning a 3-D archery shoot for the Chatfield Fish and Game Club, he knew it would be the perfect memorial for his son.

Together, they came up with the Hunter Bergo Heart of Gold Memorial Archery Shoot.

Stephans knew Ryker and Hunter as customers in Magnum Sports where he works and was deeply impacted by Hunter’s passing. “Something that really struck home is that you never know what’s going to happen,” Stephans said.

“When I heard about the accident, I was pretty sure I knew who it was even though I’m terrible with names,” Stephans remembered, “The community of archery is small so it doesn’t take a lot to impact a lot of people.” He want on to explain how one individual can be linked to so many others through the connection of the sport. “It doesn’t matter if they (the archery community) knew him or not, they were still impacted,” he pointed out.

Losing Hunter also affected Stephans on a personal level. “As a father, it’s devastating,” he said. Stephans has since changed his outlook on his relationships with family and friends and knows of many others who have done the same, adding, “it’s sad that it takes a tragedy to bring these changes.”

Stephans has been working at Magnum Sports for three years and became its new manager in March, 2015. He is also on the board of directors for the Chatfield Fish and Game Club. “I love what I do,” he said. One of Stephans’ goals is to promote outdoor you .....
