berudd...Suggest you read the article in question then offer your opinion. It isn't a purely "religious" piece; rather it is one man's way of tying together two important factors in his life - his religion as it intertwines with his passion for deer hunting. He did a good job of making his point (in my opinion). Frankly, there are good number of articles that appear in D&DH with which I disagree, and often I find selected items that I question, but I don't get terribly hung up on them. (I remember reading one article some years ago wherein the author was talking about how wet it was due to a heavy rain the night before, then he started talking about "hearing deer walking through the woods.") Now I admit that I don't have the best hearing to be found, but I have never heard a deer walking through wet leaves, perhaps others have. My point here is that I seriously doubt that anyone, including the editors of D&DH, expect all readers to completely embrace every word that appears on their pages. While I eagerly anticipate the arrival of each new edition of D&DH, I view it as simply another source of information and ideas. I do not, however, view it as total gospel (pardon the pun).
ORIGINAL: berudd

As I did not read the article I can't make any specific comments. However, what I can say is that I seek out and purchase publications like D&DH because I want to read about deer hunting. I support the right that everyone has to religious freedom but I have no interest in reading religious based articles in a deer hunting publication. I would seek out religious publications if that is what I was looking for.

It is a great article !

I am not a religious man and it was still a great read . It never hurts to be reminded that there are other important aspects of life that should not be put on hold just because of deer season . After having read the article I will at least make an effort to think about family , friends , and work , while I am deer hunting this year :)

If I cant make a good shot please let me have a clean miss

I agree with Mark Anthony's post . I would suggest that when it come time to "pay the Pipher" , that you don't do it with any more wine ! [:D]..[:D]

It was a great article and I hope to see more of them.
Its kind of sad when a person has to tip-toe around expressing their faith in America.

I think it was a great article. I read it out loud to my wife and kids and we talked about it over dinner. It was a great reminder and lead to a great conversation around the dinner table. You know, it doesn't pertain to just deer hunting. It pertains to many things in life that we put ahead of other important priorities. My wife and kids got it too... they understood it! One thing me and my family try to do, and this article talked about it, we try to keep God as the center of our lives.

I just want to thank D&DH for allowing these type articles to be printed. I am not afraid to let my kids read this magazine. It is kid safe! Anyway, we shouldn't ignore the blessing bestowed on us as a people and a nation. For me, God is the central, most important part of my life, even more so than my wife and kids (and they know this and I hope the same for them) so I am thrilled to have read this article in a magazine that so many people will also see. I truely hope it sparks something positive in someone's life or makes them take inventory of their priorities.

Well I finally read it. Better late than never. I'll keep my remarks simple and to the point.
Hands down, the single best deer hunting article I have ever read.

I thought it was a great article. We will always have people on both sides of the fence on just about any topic we discuss, isn't that what makes america great that we all don't have to agree.

This article is well written and a great reminder to us all.  I feel that I have been guilty of the same thing before with both hunting and fishing.  I also applaud both the writer and the D&DH for having the courage to share this with us all.  Nice job!
