USA – -( Hunters Are The Salt Of The Earth: Matter of fact, I’d say that 95% of the people I have met in the hallowed hunting camp have been upright, pleasant, courteous, grateful, hard working, God-and-country-loving, family oriented folks with whom it was my deepest pleasure to be able to share a few days pursuing game.

Hunters Put Their Money Where Their Mouth Is: What I’ve seen in 30 plus years out in the hunting fields is this: The family that hunts together stays together.

Hunting requires communication between the hunting parties. There’s a lot that goes into being a successful hunter, and it demands plenty of quality time spent between the tribe discussing safety, terrain, conservation, the particular animals to be pursued, and choices of weapons, boots, clothes, bullets, bows/arrows After all the aforementioned prelim stuff is done with, then the hunt commences, which includes sitting, walking, stalking, and then relaxing around the sacred campfire, where it’s just talking, laughing and anticipating the next day, you are all together.

The hunter understands this: Family is everything.

Hunting Provides Massive Amounts Of Food For The Poor: The reality is that we provide a massive, benevolent source of high-protein, low-fat food to the poor at our own expense. In the last couple of years alone, my buddies and I have paid for the hunting, butchering and processing of, conservatively, 10,000 pounds of sweet venison for the poor in Africa and at risk kids, Christian ministries, and abused and battered women here in the U.S. of A.

That’s 10,000 plus pounds of [organic] meat just between a few guys in the last few years.

Art by God: The hunter gets an ocular overload, as he is fortunate to behold the handiwork of the Creator in an intimate and intimidating way.

The hunter understands what King David meant in Psalm 23 when he says that God “He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he restores my soul.”

Hunting Revives The Hunter’s Primal Roots: Just getting out in the wild reconnects me with my original spiritual and physical moorings. When God created Adam and Eve, He made certain that their initial crib didn’t have cable TV or a home association.
