Do you know why we hit so many deer in October and November? "The rut!" you say. Yes, but it's a lot more than that. In the whitetail world, everything is changing right now. In my new article at Deer & Deer Hunting online, I detail 8 reasons why we hit deer. If you and your family are going to be safe on the roads, you need to know hitting deer is more than a matter of rut-crazed bucks running willy-nilly into the paths of cars.

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison (Genesis 27:3, KJV).
God is pro-hunting. That's right, and he has some things to say about the chase. The Bible presents hunting in a positive light. History, science and common sense also inform us about the role hunting plays in God's created order — what people call nature.
"Mission: Hunter" is a blog that addresses hunting topics through the lens of theology for the woods and for hunters who pursue deer and other wildlife in its native habitat, grounded in the moral rightness of hunting from a Christian and biblical point of view.
The Bible does not support the common idea that hunting is morally wrong. Hunting is moral, positive, and right for a Christian believer to do. In the Old Testament the history of hunting goes back to the days of Noah (Genesis 9:2-3). In the New Testament it was God who told Peter, one of Jesus' closest disciples, to "Kill and eat" (Acts 10:13). God's word in Genesis 9:2-3 never changed.
In my mission to pursue Christ, hunting is a platform for sharing the gospel through writing and speaking. Mission: Hunter!
