"As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, O God" (Psalm 42:1, NIV).
--as quoted on the CDHA webpage

When two special interest groups merge, the result is generally pretty interesting--you get the Pink Pistols (gay/gun rights), the Mormon Trekkies (translating the Book of Mormon into Klingon), et al. Personally I am a longtime appreciator (in that internet way) of the Christian Deer Hunters Association of Silver Lake, MN, and their enlightening trading cards.

A primary objective of the Christian Deer Hunters Association is to reveal and encourage a Biblical World View approach to deer hunting. Some of the things that a Biblical World View will help to stimulate or encourage include:
  • An awareness that deer hunting can be an excellent opportunity for sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with other hunters (Mk. 16:15-16).
  • The proper view towards those who are in authority, such as DNR officials (Rms. 13:1-7).
  • Proper treatment of game after it has been harvested (Prov. 12:27).
  • The importance of faithful church attendance and involvement during the hunting season (Heb. 10:25).
  • A wiser use of time spent while actually in the field hunting (e.g. Scripture reading, memorization, prayer, witnessing).
You can purchase their book Devotionals for Deer Hunters, "which contains true stories of how God has worked in the lives of various hunters." But I am plenty fulfilled by their trading cards, which you can view on their homepage. (Scroll down a ways.)
