David,
I also have enjoyed keeping up with you and this 49 state slam quest. What I see mostly about you on these forums is you are a great witness for Jesus Christ. The Lord has blessed you and put you own a mission to represent Him. I think you are doing a good job representing Christ as well as knocking down states for this slam. Look foward to seeing which states you will be witnessing and hunting in next!

I really appreciate what you said bud. It's always fulfilling to hear another brother through Christ say what you said. Everyday is a challenge for me and the only way I make it is through The Lord Jesus Christ. Surrounding yourself with individuals that put God first in all they do will make you a better person. The best conversations I have while on the road hunting not only involve turkeys but how incredibly awesome our God is and how His love never fails and will always be there for you when you fall. I enjoy hunting but not as much as I love Him. He placed these wonderful hobbies in my life for a reason in my youth and I now know why. It kept me out of trouble and gave me the passion to seek Him more and more each and every year. I plan share my passion on here for hunting turkeys but to also share my quest to better know God and all the worldly difficulties I may face along this journey.

I leave Thursday for south FL, so im ready for another awesome year with God as my beacon :)
