Deer hunter's prayer

Postby Ohio farms » Sun Dec 18, 2011 6:12 am

I thought that you all might get a laugh over this. A few years ago I wrote this prayer and posted it on the refrigerator at our farm house/deer camp. ( I stole the concept from a Rapala commercial) In the morning before we leave to go our into the woods, we all stand by the fridge and recite the prayer in our best monotone voices. Here it is.
Oh Lord,
There he is..He looks like a big one.
Please don't let me miss him.
I have never shot one this big before.
Please don't let the wind change direction.
I'll try not to get buck fever.
If I get him, I promise not to brag too much.
I will have him mounted only if my wife says that it is ok.
Amen.
Keep life simple...if you hear hoofbeats, think horses, not zebras.

That is a good one.

Another simple prayer that works in many situations:

Dear Lord,

Please don't let me screw up

Amen

I think that we all say that prayer.

We will get in and get back out, Lord Willing, and the creek don't rise! ;)
The only real difference between a good tracker and a bad tracker is observation. All the same data is present for both. The rest is understanding what you are seeing.
