How much do those who oppose hunting know about actual wildlife management? Not much. Not much at all. Turns out those who oppose hunting do almost nothing for wildlife. They'd love to hug Bambi, and they sympathize with dead bears and bunnies. They like the idea of rehabilitating injured wildlife, but they give a pittance toward funding anything to do with actual wildlife management. But those who hunt — they do just about everything.

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!
