Hey Guys, I don't know what you guys do while in your stands or blinds, but I spend alot of time in prayer as I scan the woods and sit in awe of HIS greatness, goodness and the living masterpiece of creation that I'm sitting in. I also take in my pack a few pocket sized books that are great reading. Steve Chapman is an author of Christian hunting books. the story's are short and tie a hunting experience to a message. A good one to start with is "With God on a Deer Hunt". He has others that are good too. Look him up. Check out the books.
There is NEVER a bad time to focus on God!!!!!!! I am praying for all of us as we begin another season in the woods.

I like that statement.

Tha above post is a good idea for those that read while they hunt. Especially since there small and it doesnt add alot to all the stuff we already haul into the woods. Im just not a reader while in the stand.

Buckfever,
I was not at all a reader, until I started taking classes towards my Pastorate. The stories in these books are extremely short 1-2 min reads at most. What I find is after reading a 1-2 page story, you look up from the pages and see exactly what he was writing about, Living right in front of you. You are a part of it. And you see what your looking at differently than you did just two minutes ago. Oh, what lessons and huge blessings HE has for us if we give Him the Time.

If you all carry your cell phone with you when your out hunting, and you have the internet on it, heres a good site. Bible Mobile This site has the full bible in a very easy to read format for a phone. I love having the bible with me all of the time, in my phone! I have also read 'A look at life from a deer stand' A great book for any hunter.

I am taking classes online. Right now I am taking a few short classes on a couple of free sites. the thing with these is you have to make sure that the classes you take will transfer. I was taking classes online from Liberty, and some courses from Ky Christian Col. But now I am putting my oldest daughter through college with no help of financial aid (I don't know how that is possible) I've had to look for other ways to continue on with the studies.---Not to fear or fret, there is a time and season for everything. There is no doubt that HE knows what HE is doing in guiding us all. So I will trust without worry and stand still and let God move.

i also am starting school i have been called to go into the ministry full time and am about to start pursuing my bachelors in christian ministries through crown college. its funny how we all spend more time with god during hunting season than out of it when we can be closer to his great creation and most think that we are just savage creatures out there looking for a kill and quick thrill. i am starting to bring the outdoors into our church slowly i am starting a ministry for fisherman so we can go to the lake and go fishing then shortl yafter have a bible study at the lake my first one will be on the 26 ofthis month at lake barkely if any of you are colse to the LBL area you are more than welcome to come.:yes:

sorry i forgot to put the book i was gonna talk about on the last post my bad it is a book about how creation is real and that darwinism and the darwinian theory are all non evidential but only circumstantial. the book is called " I Dont Have Enough Faith to be an Athiest" If you are haveing a struggle with whether or not you can believe in creation or know someone that is PM me and i can give some great ideas and prove that creation is real without a doubt. also if youd like the book i may be able to get you a copy and ill send it to you.
