Man Camp




5:00 AM - wake up...
5:15 AM - have a light breakfast...
5:30 AM - sitting in a deer stand or a shooting house... waiting... watching the sun rise upon the woods & the world come back to life... with otters, owls, armadillos, coyotes, turkey vultures, squirrels, deer, opossums, & such reveling in the glories of creation... occasionally enjoying a good book or a whispered conversation with a friend...
9:00 AM - coming back to the hunting camp...
9:30 AM - a breakfast FEAST, eating like Benjamin in Genesis 43.34...
10:00 AM - playing games, pushup contests, mud-riding on 4-wheelers, riding through the quiet beauty of creation on a golf cart, napping, spending time with friends, telling & hearing stories, reading a good book again, target shooting...
2:00 PM - back to the woods for another hunt...
DARK - returning to the hunting camp...
7:00ish PM - practicing the only reasonable application of Genesis 43.34 once again... serious feastability...
LATE INTO THE NIGHT... more games, more stories, more awesomeness...





100 Great Things About Living in Alabama:

#27... Hunting Camp!


#28... My son harvesting his first deer



#29... Taking his deer to Weaver Meat Processing & basking in the wonder of their menu... I recommend summer sausage with pepper cheese... heated in the microwave for exactly 40 seconds. Glory.


"He was a mighty hunter before the Lord. Therefore it is said, 'Like Nimrod a mighty hunter before the Lord.'"
