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!


Do You Believe in Ghosts?

The signs are all around us. The coming hunting seasons are shaping up to be memorable, and we're counting down the days. But no matter how much deer sign we see, and evidence of other abundant wildlife, at some point this fall everything will fall into a lull. Did the deer move to other ranges? Are they changing home ranges? Is there too much activity in the woods for them to be comfortable doing what they have been doing? Were the animals we saw in September nothing more than ghosts? When the lull comes, think about my September 23 column in the Jamestown Gazette, "Do You Believe in Ghosts?" Photo by Steve Sorensen: The doe has the fawns well trained. They watch Momma, and Momma watches m

The Kid Is a Cutting-Edge Leader

It was Art Linkletter who hosted the classic 1950s TV show named "House Party" with a hilarious segment called "Kids Say the Darndest Things." That was six decades ago, but kids still surprise us with what comes out of their mouths. My newspaper column this week tells about a friend's boy who joined a Cub Scout troop and took over the conversation about what gear the kids might need when faced with outdoor challenges.

It has done every job it has been asked to do. Hopefully, it won't be called on fo
