Prayers for Hunters

Many of you know that I love to hunt, an avocation that I started only in 2005. My first day in the field was very successful and I became hooked on hunting. Over the years I have learned more about the skills of the hunt, including how to use a bow and arrows, the cleaning of the harvested animals and the preparation of the meat, and the importance of hunting for the management of the herds of animals. I have a tremendous amount to learn yet, and I hope to do so during whatever years I have left. Certainly, part of the attraction of hunting is the time in the woods, learning to pay attention to animals in their own environment, a careful type of attentiveness I had not experienced either in zoos or during walks in the woods. Another part of the attraction is the quiet time in which I can pray much. Most of my prayer time is in a chapel before our Lord Jesus Christ in the Blessed Sacrament, and I hope to keep that as the primary support of my prayer life. However, the days I spend in a deer blind are very important times for prayer. After a week of vacation I am refreshed and ready to get back to my busy schedule for the rest of the year.
