Therefore it is said,
“Like Nimrod a mighty hunter before the Lord.”"
Genesis 10:9 ESV
I can tell you one thing, I never, ever, ever, ever, ever, EVER, thought I would do a blog about hunting. My friends and family know me as the "tree hugger", "animal lover", "hunting hater"... Silly considering all my siblings and father hunt. Now, I don't nessisarily hate hunting, I just hate the thought of animals dying. I'm emotional and sentimental, aka I get attached to things (especially animals) way fast. I know many people who hunt, hunt not only because they enjoy it, but also to help feed thier families. That is something I can totally understand and appreciate.
One of those types of hunters, just happens to be my Dad. My Dad has hunted lots of different animals for many years. Recently, he went on a trip with some friends and got his first turkey! And his second! And his third! That is pretty awesome in my book!
The friend's my Dad went with actually document hunting adventures for a "Neck of the Woods Outdoor Adventures". To see their page click here. After watching the 2 videos my Dad's friend took while they were hunting I was actually surprised to see the hunters still appreciating the animal, it's beauty and uniqueness of each bird. I won't say I like hunting now, because I did close my eyes during the video when I heard the gun shot, but I thought it was a really cool oppurtunity my Dad had to really apprieciate the true beauty and grace of God's creation.
I very strongly believe God sees my Dad as a mighty hunter in His eyes. I know my Dad is a mighty hunter in my eyes! I love you Dad! Thanks for being a Godly loving example in my life! I'm proud of you!
Below are the video's of my Dad getting his turkeys! Enjoy!
