Our 2023 Big Game hunting season kicked off with our October Antelope Hunt, our best hunt yet! All 7 young men harvested their first big game animal, and we’re so grateful for the 100% success rate God blessed us with!
The hunt occurred on 80,000 acres of private land where Tri-State Outfitters generously provided the tags and land access.The action was fast and furious, as every young man got to experience numerous exciting stalks before making great shots to harvest their animal! We were blessed to base our hunting camp out at the outfitter’s lodge. Winds gusted to 60mph, and the temps dropped in the teens at night, so we were grateful for the heated wall tents. Our Campfire Talks took place in an incredible lodge room complete with many trophy mounts and a huge fireplace.Youth who tagged out early got to fish a stocked pond, shoot archery, and scale the nearby bluffs to absorb the beautiful views God provided.
The hunt came to an incredible close around a roaring campfire, where the young men received a knife engraved with their names. Perhaps the most powerful moment of all was when the grown men laid their hands on the young men in praying over them.
We are so PROUD of Israel, James, Austin, Justus, Adrian, Lincoln, and Colton. WELL DONE, MEN!
