Mission: Hunter

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!


Start Now to Prepare for Turkey Season

Spring is a very busy time. Here in the North we who are turkey hunting enthusiasts eagerly anticipate warmer air and sunshine that will eliminate all the snow and rejuvenate the landscape. But we have an enormous amount of work ahead of us because turkey season will be here before we know it, and we may need to burn the candle at both ends in order to be ready. This week's column will help you to set your priorities as we head into spring. Remember, you have plenty to do that isn't related to turkey hunting, so don't overlook anything because you're really not ready for turkey season unless you properly line up the ducks of all your other responsibilities. That's the message and the emphasi

The Story of a Western Cowboy/Outfitter

This new book is "hot off the press," as they say and it's a good one. Titled Life Doesn't Get Any Better, it's a collection of stories about a man, his dogs, his horses, his hunts, and his heritage. Dusty Youren made a life in the Idaho mountains (plus a few other places including British Columbia, Nevada and Utah) hunting, outfitting, rodeoing, cowboying, and a few other things. Here's the front and back cover: I have a box on hand (I guess you'd call them "advance copies") so I can fill a few orders before the book is actually on the market. Click on the "Books" tab and check it out, along with my other books. Life Doesn't Get Any Better by Dusty Youren with Steve Sorensen $25 Total, ship

Shed Antler Hunting Is No Waste of Time

Shed antler hunting has become a second deer season for some hunters. As the weather breaks we head for the deer woods, attempting to unravel the habits of bucks—where the bed, where the feed, and the routes they use to get from one place to another. Winter is a time they conserve energy, and no longer need to carry the bones on their heads. So, they drop them, the spots scab over, and by the first of May they're growing a new set. My newest column (read it online in the Jamestown Gazette ) answers the questions of why we hunt shed antlers. And the reasons include far more than simply scouting for the next season. Hunting for shed antlers is worth doing, even if you don't find any! I've foun
