Here are my top 10 of the many things the bible says about fishing.

  1. JOHN 21:9- As soon then as they were come to land, they saw a fire of coals there, and fish laid thereon, and bread.
  2. JOHN 21:10-Jesus saith unto them, Bring of the fish which ye have now caught.
  3. LUKE 24:42-And they gave him a piece of a broiled fish, and of an honeycomb.
  4. MARK 6:41-And when he had taken the five loaves and the two fishes, he looked up to heaven, and blessed, and brake the loaves, and gave them to his disciples to set before them, and the two fishes divided he among them all.
  5. Matt 13:47-Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea, and gathered of every kind.
  6. EZEK 47:10-And it shall come to pass, that the fishers shall stand upon it from En-gedi even unto EN-eglaim: they shall be a place to spread forth nets: their fish shall be according to their kinds, as the fish of the great sea, exceeding many.
  7. NUM 11:5- We remember the fish, which we did eat in egypt freely, the cucumbers, and the melons, and the leeks, and the onions, and the garlick.
  8. GEN 1:28-And God blessed them, and God said unto them: Be fruitful and multiply, and replinish the earth, and subdue it, and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
  9. JOHN 21:3-Simon Peter saith unto them, I go a fishing.  They say unto him, We also go with thee.  They went forth, and entered into a ship immediately: and that night they caught nothing.
  10. MATT 4:19- And he saith unto them: Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.

I received this knife for Christmas last year. I am a avid hunter and wanted the knife because I watch all the survivor shows on tv. I love Bear Grylls show and also if you have checked out his website at all he does alot of cool things to help out around the world. http://www.beargrylls.com check it out. Back to the knife. The blade I found is made of good steel, it has not chipped or dulled on me the whole year. I have used it to cut trees in half, gut multiple deer, start a fire with ease, hammer stuff with it. You get the picture. When I gutted the deer the handle feels very comfortable in your hand, it opened the deer up with ease cutting through the ribs all the way to the neck in one swipe. I split the pelvic bone with ease and have used it to hack at bone with no blade dullness or chipping. I have had other knives that the tips have broken off, blades chip, they dull after gutting one deer. This knife is still going strong. The serrated edge works great, there is a whistle on the handle for situation where you might get lost. The sheath had the ferral rod in it, a sharpening stone on the back, and also a survival pamplet to help if you need it. My brother once laughed at me, cause you know, it’s a gimmick thing. I tell you the gimmick is for real, it has been a great knife for various situations and I would buy this Gerber BG knive series again. I hope you all Like this product review, This is not a paid review.

Here is a great blog by 6or7.wordpress.com, aka MATT check it out

When senseless violence hits the presses it’s just a matter of minutes on any social media site there’s a flooding in about gun laws, pro or against, this made me sick. I’m disappointed in my conservative brothern.

I often say the left side is ignorant. Not this time. The pro gun community pounces on it too like a dog on a dropped juicy 2 pound t-bone.

Not that the left side spewed their propaganda, they did, but I expected that.

Why? To get a one up? To prove a point? Whatever it was it was in bad taste and wasn’t the time to talk about politics.

Over 20 people lost their lives, mostly children, in a recent tragedy and you want to go on a social media site an express your political views?

Shame on you.

People need to start to think on what they post. I seen numerous posts, or copy…

Ruttin’ Review: G5 Mag Loc 5 Arrow Quiver

Posted in 6or7, antlers, archery, bear, deer, experience, fishing, fleece, g5, g5 quiver, guns, Hunting, outdoors, recipe, reviews, scent-lok, sheds, sportsman, team dirt, typical, Uncategorized, vertigo with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 9, 2012 by THENONTYPICALSPORTSMAN

Well to start with here is a little about this great product:

  • Top riser-mounted quiver
  • Multiple-hole sight-mount bracket for vertical adjustment
  • Secures using a Super Magnet that allows quick and silent attaching/detaching
  • 1-piece design
  • Lightweight magnesium stem
  • Rubber over-molded hood
  • Accommodates fixed or expandable broadheads
  • Right/Left-Hand design

Ok well I have a good reason to do a review on a quiver.  The last two years I have broken both quivers I had while on my bow.  The first one I actually tripped and landed riser down on the ground and my quiver broke in half.  I can’t really say it was the quivers fault but hey.  The second I was lowering my bow down from the treestand the arrows hit the ground first, string was too long lol, but the top of the quiver broke right off.  So as I dreamed of a new quiver I still used the old one with no holder for the heads, it worked but was not visually appealing nor very safe.  Guess what, I got a new one for xmas.  The G5 Mag loc 5 arrow quiver.  I got to install it on my bow for the last week and a half of the season.  The quiver is very easy to install, took me 2 min and it looked great on my G5 Primal bow.  The metal construction was great, and I’m pretty sure it’s not going to break any time soon.  The dampeners are great for on the bow shooting.  The magnet attachment system is soooooo quiet not like those other plastic setups.  The price is mid level for quivers which is good in my opinion.  The other features are it can be used with fixed blades or expandables, can hold any arrow size including full metal jackets, and it comes in many camo patterns.   I used it on my last five hunts and loved it.  You can also get the magnet tree bracket for easy treestand use which I find very helpful in those mainstay stands.  Overall I cannot say anything bad about this setup, its quiet, cost-effective, more than functional in every situation you find yourself in.  I highly recommend you go out and get one today, you wont regret it.

A Birthday Buck To Remember.

It’s another chilly November 10th morning 15 feet up in my tree stand.  You might say whats so special about the 10th of november?   Well 2 things.  1 it’s my birthday, and 2, 9 times out of 10 it’s during the rut.  As I sat in my tree stand as a fairly new archer.  I can remember it like it was yesterday.  There was no action, no deer, just a few squirrels and birds around. Well you might say whats so special about that.  Well at this time in my life our family did not really celebrate birthdays, I had not gotten a present in years.  Prior to that I had always received presents so it had been kinda a big change for a kid.  I’m not saying that presents have to be given or that I was lacking as a child I was definitely not.  It was just a change.  So enough of that and back to the story.  As I sat there in one of my favorite places, a tree stand with my bow.  I started to pray as I do 99% of the time even to this day.  The tree stand is like my closet as it says in the bible, its dark, usually pin drop quiet, it’s a great place for prayer.  My prayer that day was (I pray to you heavenly Father on this great morning that you have given us, I thank you for letting me out in this great creation of yours, enjoying everything you have made.  Father I ask you today to bring me a buck for my birthday, I have not received anything for my birthday in the last years and this is all I ask for today.  In Jesus name AMEN. )  I then opened my eyes and scanned the woods for ever so slight movement.  Nothing….. So I continued to scan for the next ten minutes or so until out of the corner of my left eye I caught a deer walking.  I looked closer and it was coming from about 100 yards out walking to my stand.  The deer approached closer and closer and at about 60 yards I could see a small rack on its head.  A six point, I was soooo excited and began to shiver a little.  The buck continued to approach my bait.  I grabbed my bow as the deer turned right on the trail coming to the bait.  I drew back my bow and tried to remember all the lessons my dad had tought me.  Again and again draw smooth, pull the pin to behind the shoulder, take a breath and let 1/2 out and hold.  release……  My release was true and I had arrowed the basket rack six point a little back but still a kill shot.  I began to shake tremendously and immediately after began to thank God for such a great buck.  I walked back to the cabin and got my dad and uncle to find the deer.  We tracked the deer in the snow for a while,  at one point I was praying again to find the deer.  Then it appeared a nice blood trail up the hill, a small 6 point laying in a hole.  I was so happy as my dad congratulated me and as I said to my uncle ” I think you should gut it for me since its my birthday”  I didn’t have to gut just drag.  I was sooo happy that day and was to this date one of the best birthdays I can remember.  The only one that strikes me more was when my dad gave me his 7mm rifle out of the blue on my birthday.  So for all you out there that enjoyed this story. Remember that it does not have to be a 23 point non-typical to become the best memories of your life. Also, I suggest that you try prayer in the stand it will change your life trust me….

Be Still……..

This past June, me and my family headed north to our little cabin to embark on a deer blind building project.  We spent the weekend working hard on the blind that is now called the TAJ.  The reason is we already have a Hilton.  So anyway, as we spent the weekend working hard, building the blind and our relationships I spotted my brothers hat.  This hat was camo and just above the bill it said Be Still…..  I told him I love your hat, did i ever tell you the story about that?  He said no.  I told my brother remind me later and I will so here it is later and here is the story.   It was a perfect November morning, not too cold, not too hot.  I sat perched 16 feet closer to God once again.  I sat in my stand in the dark praying for a great hunt, praying for my family, praying for protection, ectt….  The sun started to peek and a few squirrels scampered about, Even a few Turkeys came out of roost and walked by.  This morning was different than others, Why? Well because most other mornings I would have seen up to 20 deer by now.  This morning none.  As usual I was still praying, but for some reason I was I guess you would say testing God too much.  I would say prayers about having authority over the animals, prayers that God is no respector of persons and if he brought forth deer for you know so and so he should do it for my.  I was commanding deer to come to me.  Maybe this sounds weird to some but I guess I am testing my Faith as well.  After all this prayer and nothing still no deer.  It was getting later in the morning and I was ready to pack it up but I started praying again harder, testing more and more, when I heard clear as day!!! I mean clear as day!!!!! Be still and know that I am God!!!!!!!!  I instantly shut up, Not even 1 minute later here comes several deer to my right and a couple nice bucks with them.  I watched these beautiful bucks and does walk right in front of me at about 60 yards.  The deer then went out of sight..  Although I didnt’t arrow one of these giant bucks this morning, I really learned alot about God, myself, and prayer.  So I encourage you all to definatly use that time in the stand especially in the dark early in the morning when it’s dead quiet and probably the best time to hear God.  Be still, Pray, and always know he is GOD!!!!!!!!  your wildest dreams may come true.

Psalm 46:10 NIV

He says, “Be still, and know that I am God;     I will be exalted   among the nations,     I will be exalted in the earth.”
