Final Descent Outdoors is going into it’s fourth year of being a national hunting show and our fifth year overall. With staff scattered from Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Georgia, Oklahoma, and Texas we are yearly able to harvest some great deer and capture some amazing footage for our viewers to enjoy. We take pride in the fact that we are “average joe’s” just like our viewers. We are school teacher, firefighters, ministers, salesmen, truck drivers, and everyday folks. The goal of Final Descent Outdoors is to produce the absolute best outdoor television possible for our fans and feature our sponsors and their products that help make us successful in the woods. 

We are passionate about hunting but we are also passionate about our faith in Jesus Christ. In life as well as the show our goal is to make God look good. Furthermore, we are family men and God has called each of us to lead our families. Our spouses and children come before any hunting season. We want to allow our viewers to walk with us through the unforgettable moments, the laughs, and the heart breaks. Aren’t those the emotions that bring us back to the woods over and over again?

4 Bible Passages All Hunters Should Know

Brad Clay

With our show Final Descent Outdoors being a faith based hunting tv show we get the occasional email saying "How can you be a Christian and kill God's creation."  I kindly email back using God's word as a reference and rarely get a second response.  Here is the deal, hunting is God ordained.  That's not my opinion, that's not just my view, it's clearly stated in God's word and every Christian Outdoorsman needs to not only understand that but also know where to find passages in the Bible on hunting.

1) "God made the wild animals according to their kinds, the livestock according to their kinds, and all the creatures that move along the ground according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good.  Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.” -Genesis 1:25-26

God created everything, spoke it into existence.  In doing so He also new that order had to be put into place and in this passage God gives man dominion over all of His creation from fish, to birds, to wild game, and domesticated animals.  What an incredible God given honor, it truly is.  God placed man in charge of the animals.  This was man's first God given responsibility and one that today, hunters as conservationists must never take for granted.  But in Genesis 1 animals were not viewed as food....but it's coming.  

2) "Every moving thing that lives shall be food for you. And as I gave you the green plants, I give you everything." -Genesis 9:3

In Genesis 9 we find Noah getting off of the ark.  God tells Noah and he sons to be fruitful and multiply (have babies and repopulate the world) and that you now can view the animals as food.  Fire up the grill baby!  It's time for some baby back ribs, a perfectly seasoned ribeye, how about some backstrap fajitas, I could keep going but I haven't had lunch yet!  The point is, God told Noah, animals are now food, enjoy!  However, he is still held to the responsibility and honor from Genesis 1:25-26.

3) "In the evening quail came up and covered the camp, and in the morning dew lay around the camp" Exodus 16:13  

When God led the Israelite's out of Egypt and into the desert he provided for them in the harsh conditions.  He provided manna (a honey type bread) and...wait for it...quail.  If my grandpa was on death row he would have quail, biscuits with honey, and mashed potatoes for his last meal.  Matter of fact, I might too!  If you have never had quail then you haven't experienced life to the fullest folks!  It's incredible!  But here is the deal, we are talking about God...He could have fed His people with anything.  Some nice vegan burgers, maybe some tofu or some delicious lentils.  He didn't do that, he chose wild game out of all the possibilities in the world to feed His people.  If it's good enough for God...it's good enough for me!

4) "And there came a voice to him; "Rise, Peter; kill and eat," -Acts 10:13

In this passage Peter has a vision.  Though God had given dominion over the animals and said they are food the Jews still had many regulations and laws on what could be eaten, how it was to be prepared and so forth.  In this passage Peter realizes that the ancient laws of Moses were now abolished.  He is given the green light to kill and eat of all the creatures without distinction, which were represented to him in the sheet (Acts 10:11) and the reason for this was to show Peter, that both the distinction between clean and unclean creatures in the law was now removed and men could eat what they pleased.  You see once again, God confirms that killing and eating meat is not wrong, it's actually just the opposite of that.

So here is what we have learned.  We have a huge responsibility to oversee God's creation.  Hunters are true conservationists and we must never lose sight or abuse this power given to us by God.  We should never be ashamed for being hunters, God gave us the green light!  As long as we are not abusing the God given resources we are good to go!  Hunt, kill, eat!  Don't let someone ridicule you for being a hunter, remember Galatians 1: 10 says "Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings, or of God? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ."

Letting a 160" Walk

Brad Clay

Seems crazy doesn't it?  For most of us, a 160" whitetail is a buck of a lifetime.  Then to do it with a bow, that's even more incredible.  In 2013, Final Descent Outdoors pro staffer Adam Nicholas was hunting northwest Kansas with Homerun Outfitters.  We have had lots of success with Homerun Outfitters in the past.  After a slow start to the week, as it happens so many times, overnight everything changed for Adam on Halloween night.  

Adam was perched 20ft up in a cottonwood over a creek (in northwest Kansas trees are a rarity and when you find one, it's a cottonwood).  A great buck steps out down stream and begins making a scrape and a rub.  This buck is a poster child for Kansas bruisers.  Long main beams, tall tines, and a big body.  He didn't have a lot of mass but you can't let a buck like this walk...right?  Adam begins to evaluate the buck and though he has impressive head gear he doesn't think he is more than 3 1/2 and not yet mature.  

Filming this great buck Adam's estimation of the buck is confirmed, at least on being mature.  An old warrior begins to step out across the creek.  He looks like an old gladiator coming in for yet another battle.  Ears laid back, posturing the bigger racked buck.  First thing you notice is this buck has great mass and like many great warriors he is broken up.  His G2 on his right side is gone from a previous run in with a buck it would seem.  

Adam is anticipating a fight between these two bucks.  However, no fight occurs.  The bigger racked buck wants nothing to do with the old bruiser and quietly leaves his scrape and moves on.  The older buck goes to the new scrape and covers it with his scent solidifying himself as the dominate of the two bucks.  

A few minutes later Adam is able to arrow that big Kansas bruiser at 54yds.  So the moral of the story is this.  Not everyone has the privilege to hunt Kansas, or Ohio, or Kentucky, or another state known for producing giants.  Not everyone is A TV show host shooting big bucks across the country for a living.  In fact, most guys are weekend warriors.  They work hard so they can play hard.  With limited time in the field, it's hard to let those bucks grow, I get it.  So the trophy is in the eye of the beholder.  We encourage hunters to let young bucks grow but we don't want to ever put anyone down for taking a deer, this is suppose to be fun.  

Watch Adam Choose The Mature Buck!

As a faith based program so many lessons can be drawn from this this hunt, but what sticks out most to me spiritually speaking is my desire to seek maturity.  I would rather have a tree with deep roots than broad branches.  Colossians 2:7 says "Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him.  Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness."  It's easy to choose broad branches in life.  They look impressive many times but maturity should be our desire in the woods and in life.
