Keith Jones - Summit Tree Stands

April 16, 2012
This interview should be of incredible interest and importance to anyone who hunts from a tree stand. Keith Jones of Summit Tree Stands reflects on the changes in safety that have occurred in the tree stand industry. The effort is to reduce the number of hunters injured or killed, which is currently one out of every three who climb into the heights of the timber where they are hunting. Gerry and Keith give information to the listeners that they both hope will keep them from becoming one of these sad statistics.

This interview is at Rushing Wind Retreat Center for the men’s fishing retreats held each summer in June. The interview is with Mitch Kjose, founder of Christian Sportsman’s Fellowship Plus. Mitch shares how he got involved in the outdoors as a young man, trapping to make extra money. In the later years growing up in South Dakota, he began to see that one could use outdoor recreational activities to change lives for eternity. It is something that this ministry has been able to do in the years since it got off the ground.

Pro bass fisherman Mark Davis shares how the loss of his mom when he was a young boy, and his adventures in the outdoors, caused him to see that one day he could make a living as a fisherman. After nine years on the bass fishing circuit, he was looking at throwing in the towel because he never won the “big one”. It was at this point having been a Christian for a number of years he finally decided to turn his fishing over to Jesus Christ. That year he won Angler of the Year and the Bass Master Classic, something no one had ever done before.

This week's program is an interview with Terry Mouldon of Mouldy’s Tackle Shop in Chippewa Falls, WI. Terry shares with Gerry and the listeners about how he got interested in outdoors through his dad’s trout fishing, then moved on to fishing for muskies and producing lures to hook these big-toothed predators. Terry goes on to tell of how hearing an interview with his fishing hero, Al Lindner, and his testimony of not knowing how to pray brought him to making a life-changing decision.

Gerry hooks up with fishing legend Hank Parker, and the two talk about the opportunities that Hank has because of his notoriety in the outdoor world to share the Gospel, not just at game dinners, but even sometimes at boat shows even though those visiting with him may not feel it’s even appropriate for their children to hear. Hank shares how things happen in our lives, the loss of loved ones, that we can’t always explain, might not even be able to understand completely until the day that we are in the presence of our Creator and Lord Jesus Christ.

The owner of Formula Boats, Scott Porter, takes Gerry and the listeners on a history walkthrough how the business started with just simple 14-foot boats by his father years ago. The company now manufactures cabin cruisers, some as large as 48 feet in length. Scott shares how he is involved with a group of churches that conducts Sunday services on a lake so that people who would not normally get into a church can pull their boat up and have the opportunity to hear the word of God shared right there on the water.

This week is an interview with game call expert, Harold Knight, who is part founder of Knight & Hale Game Call Company. Harold talks about some funny things that have happened in his life, and how his good buddy David loves to use these stories when he speaks at game dinners. Harold also tells the amazing story of how the very first goose he ever shot when he was 11 years old had a band on its leg from a man in Canada with a Bible verse on it. This was the beginning of him praying to receive Jesus Christ as Savior.

They’re taking over the entire town, and no, this isn’t just some science fiction horror movie! Tim Griffiths shares with Gerry about the ministry of Shepherd’s Staff located in Rexford, Kansas. As businesses in this town struggle and have to close their doors, this ministry looks to purchase the buildings and turn them into facilities where churches, groups, and individuals can come for Christ-centered retreats. The ministry is also doing fall pheasant hunts to reach men and boys, and just beginning to see their spring turkey hunts take off as well.

We pull out the metal detectors on this week’s program as Kevin Clark is the guest at Rushing Wind Retreat Center. Besides talking about this summer adventure at Rushing Wind, the men’s and couple’s retreats that take place every year and Kevin shares how he taught himself to fish as a young boy. The gift of a metal detector when he was young from his mother opened the door to an insatiable interest in history and coin collecting. Today Kevin also uses metal detecting as an opportunity to get into people’s lives and also share Christ Jesus.
