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.

The founder of Fathers in the Field, John Smithbaker, talks about how not having a father when he grew up, and those wounds, helped in starting this ministry. Reaching out and mentoring boys who have no dads in their lives over a significant period of time can change who they are, and allow them to see that God the Father is different than their earthly dad. John shares about his growing up years, and how his outdoor passion moved him into a position at the top of Brunton located in Wyoming.

Gerry visits with Ed Gannon, who lives in the Montgomery, Alabama area.  Ed discusses his farm, and the quality deer management they practice.

This interview includes an amazing story of how a man from Russia, on coming to Ed’s farm, came into a God-directed encounter that saved a baby’s life in the country of Russia. An incredible story that will certainly touch a listener’s heart!

Gerry joins with Russell Thornberry, Executive Editor of Buckmaster Magazine, on an outreach hunt in Ohio. Russ describes to the listeners how to properly prepare and dress for hunting while sitting in the treestand all day long even if the temperature is minus 40 degrees. Russ makes the point that it is as much of a challenge psychologically as it is to have the proper equipment to be able to endure these temperatures comfortably and have a successful hunt. This program is as much addressing safety as it is the practicality of being in these extreme temperatures.

A trip to 3Rivers Archery in Ashley, IN, and time spent with the owners Dale and Sandi Karch, is a trip down memory lane. The couple look back on how they got interested in traditional archery, Dale’s building the Tomahawk Bows, and their desire to have 3Rivers Archery sell the Tomahawks brought them to a point of being offered an opportunity to buy the business. Together, the two look at this beginning, the changes through the years, and how it has blessed their children, now giving them grandchildren, and their boys’ involvement with the family business today. They realize they wouldn’t be where they are if it wasn’t for the Creator God, and how He has had His hand in their lives.
