If you want to knock any deer over with one shot, I'll tell you how to do it. I'm not going out on a limb with that statement because it's not about the cartridge. You can do it with a .243. You can do it with the .300 magnum. Re-read those last two sentences. What's common in both of them? That's right — every word except the caliber. "You can do it." Yes, if you know where to put the bullet AND YOU CAN PUT THE BULLET THERE, you can do it every time. (The great majority of times anyway, because there are no guarantees in deer hunting.)

"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!
