“It’s not whether you win or lose…”

This week’s blog is written by my good friend, Matt Roberson. I have had the joy of taking Matt elk hunting a couple of times in the past several years. We have enjoyed some great times in the woods talking life and getting very close to elk. He hasn’t been successful yet, but one day it will happen, Lord willing. Love ya Matt and thanks for this great post. – Brandon I was a high school stand out athlete in several sports. I had even played a little bit of […]

Traits of God – Unchanging

For 27 years my dad and I hunted elk in the same general area of North Idaho. Each year, in the late spring, we would load our 4 wheelers and head up to begin scouting for the coming fall.

Working against time and daylight we decided to split up. I would make the hike back to our 4-wheelers and get our backpack frames. We would use those to pack the 250 lbs. of meat out of the woods. The sun was quickly setting as I made […]

Preparing

Bow season! Very few things on the calendar do I anticipate more. In the coming days, I will return back to my old home in North Idaho and venture into God’s beautiful creation in search of the elusive elk. It’s where my soul recharges, and I draw close to God in ways I just cannot do when surrounded by concrete. The anticipation of going and preparing all of my gear gets my heart going. The last few weeks, I have spent many evenings in my backyard shooting my bow in […]
