God’s Great Outdoor Adventures – Let’s Go Hunting!

sportsman for christ 01 300KENTUCKY (11/21/12) – Hello again folks. I hope you are having a blessed week. There is so much to be thankful for, not just this week, but everyday throughout the year.
 
First, and foremost, I am thankful to God. He gave up his only son to die on that old rugged cross for me, and for you, so we could have eternal life.
 
I am also thankful for a Godly household. My wife is everything to me. She is my backbone.
 
I can’t wait to go on our annual shopping adventure come Friday. We always have a blast. But first, I will be heading to the duck blind on Thanksgiving Day before celebrating with the family. My son and I will be joined by Billy and Keenan Vandiver.
 
I have scouted a nice waterhole and there are a few thousand birds waiting for me out there. Billy and I will have to be quick on the draw with these boys of ours, because they will shoot the birds as soon as I call the shot.
 
We have several ducks in our area at this time. I have saw mallards, Gadwalls, Wood Ducks, Pintails and lots of Teal. I have also spotted some migrating snows and Canadian geese.
 
The biggest problem we have is water supply. If you find a remote body of water, it should be covered in waterfowl. Every waterfowl hunter knows that the sport comes with a lot of extra hard work, but in the end it all pays off well.
 
The first part of this season, and until we get a bit of rainfall, it is going to be very hard work. Unless you hunt the river or a pit you might as well leave your boats at the house and be prepared to wade through thick mud and very little water for great distances, ranging from 150 to 200 yards, before reaching water that is suitable for hunting.
 
Everyone be safe this week and remember, where deer hunting is permitted you must wear hunter orange to and from your duck hunting destination.
 
As waterfowl season approached and my deer season was being so tough that I decided to harvest a management Buck Sunday morning before church. God blessed me with this deer and gave me a message thru this harvest.
 
I had about a 200 to 300 yard drag back to the truck. Since the ice storm there is no way to get my four-wheeler back into this location, so it was time for me to drag my deer to the truck. I am not as young and in shape as I was back when I was 18-years-old. From time to time I would have to stop dragging up the hill get down on one knee and gasp for air. It took me a hour to field dress and drag this deer over the hill to my truck. Each time I stopped I thought more and more about Jesus carrying the cross of on top of the hill to be crucified. While dragging the deer I had a choice to stop and breath. Jesus also had a choice He could have called ten thousand angels, but instead He didn't. He chose to die for you and for me. The soldiers wouldn't let him stop to rest or to get a drink. The soldiers whipped and beat Him every step of the way. I don't know what your relationship is like with our Lord Jesus today, but we do not know the day or the hour in which He is coming back.
 
I ask you, my friends, to examine your life. If you would like to know more about Jesus and His coming back, give me a call and I would be more than glad to teach you about Him.
 
On behalf of my family and all of us here at Sportsmen for Christ, I want to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving. There is so much food wasted year after year. When you are done eating with your family, fix a couple plates and take it to someone that is less fortunate. You will be blessed. I promise you a warm feeling in your heart.
 
Until next week God Bless and be safe.
