Thanks to KNOPHISH for the donation last week.
Sons are a heritage from the LORD, children a reward from him. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are sons born in one's youth. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them. They will not be put to shame when they contend with their enemies in the gate. - Psalm 127:3-5

Thank you to StoryTeller and Buckmark for helping with a recent donation of hunting gear, fishing rods/reels, and terminal tackle to continue to support this free gear locker for ministry leaders, their families and others. Today's donation was AWESOME!!!

I had the joy of handing out a bunch of free rods, reels, tackle and clothing to some teenagers today that were STOKED to say the least who are getting into fly fishing. One said, "Thanks SO MUCH. Tell your donors that they're awesome."

Thanks to all who keep supplying me with gear for the gear locker and helping me send ministry leaders, pastors and their families on hunts.

I've got 3 guys headed out on hunts this fall.

   - 1 is a Sr. Pastor

   - 1 is a Youth Pastor

   - 1 is a Summer Camp Director who's battling terminal cancer

If you would like to help make their hunts epic and want to donate gear or funds to help pay for their costs, send me a PM. (See the original post below from last year)

ORIGINAL POST:
I've been supporting and mentoring new hunters who are traditionally from lower income jobs (specifically those in full-time church work like pastors or missionaries) for the last few years. Last year, I was able to help a physically disabled pastor and his two sons get out on their first deer/turkey hunt with some success.

This year, I'm working with two guys, one a youth pastor (and former Air Force vet) and another pastor, who've never hunted. They've both been through some turmoil this past year (like many of us) and are looking to take hunting on as a way to refresh and let go of some of the burdens they carry.

That's where you come in.

I'm looking for help gathering gear or donations to purchase gear, if anyone is interested. The folks above will be the recipients of used or new equipment that can help get them on their way to a lifetime love of hunting and the outdoors. If you'd like to participate, here's some ideas:

You can:

  - Donate Gear - Help provide gear for a "Gear Locker" that will be made available for those who go on hunting trips in 2021 and beyond. I'll be gathering all kinds of items for future use by new hunters and would love as much used/new gear as I can take. Items needed may include, but are not limited to:

   Archery gear for new bowhunters
   Blaze Orange Hat/Caps
   Blaze Vests or Jackets
   Camo clothing of all sizes
   Spotting Scopes
   Tri-Pods
   Binoculars
   Calls (ducks, geese, turkey, deer, Foxpro, etc.)
   Maps or GPS or compasses
   Backpacks
   Hunting knives
   Gutting & Skinning kits
   Deer drags
   Hunting Gloves
   Hunting Hats
   Fleece Jackets
   Camo Pants
   Boots (Rubber for wet days/water crossings)
   Boots (Leather for big game hunting)
   Raingear (pants/jackets/ponchos)
   Headlamps
   Game bags
   Scent Control
   Rangefinders
   Hand warmers
   Gun cases
   Ground blinds or layout blinds
   Emergency Preparedness Kits
           - First Aid stuff
           - Fire Making stuff
           - Bivy Sack
           - Water filtration/iodine tablets
           - Paracord
           - Whistle
           - Etc.

   Fishing Gear
           - Tackle boxes
           - Hooks
           - Bobbers
           - Beginner rods and reels for kids
           - Panfish jigs, bass lures, trout gear, etc.
           - Stringers
           - Rulers
           - Hook removers
           - etc.

And anything else that might be of usefulness.

or

  -  Make a Donation (give a tax-free donation) to help make this trip happen. Yes, as a full-time missionary, I have a fund that can be used to cover costs for this type of retreat. Simply click here to make a tax-free donation: https://www.paraclete.net/project/the-ministry-care-fund/

Thank you for reading and considering getting involved.

I also have another thread dedicated to taking pastors and missionaries and their families fishing. Check it out here: https://hunting-washington.com/smf/index.php?topic=261347.msg3545996#msg3545996

It's that time of the year again. I'm gathering gear in my gear locker to hand out to new hunters - specifically pastors and their kids.

I'll be working on hosting and/or sending multiple people on hunts this year and would love to outfit them with gear.

If you've got any hunting gear, bows, firearms, connections, etc. that you'd like to donate so that I can "pay it forward" to help pastors learn how to hunt and have success without breaking the bank, please contact me.

Most needed items include:

  1.  Financial Donations to The Ministry Care Fund that I use to cover guided trip fees, buy new gear: https://www.paraclete.net/project/the-ministry-care-fund/ (all donations are tax deductible)

  2. New/Gently Used Compound Bows, Rifles, Shotguns, etc. (I'm willing to pay transfer fees)

  3. New/Gently Used Binoculars, Spotting Scopes, Tripods, Calls, Blinds (layout or a-frame)

At this time, I'm not taking clothing unless its new and un-used. I just don't have space for all the clothing that comes in.

Here's a main list of items I'd be happy to take and give away to people who need it. Items needed may include, but are not limited to:

   Archery gear for new bowhunters
   Blaze Orange Hat/Caps
   Blaze Vests or Jackets
   Camo clothing of all sizes
   Spotting Scopes
   Tri-Pods
   Binoculars
   Calls (ducks, geese, turkey, deer, Foxpro, etc.)
   Maps or GPS or compasses
   Backpacks
   Hunting knives
   Gutting & Skinning kits
   Deer drags
   Hunting Gloves
   Hunting Hats
   Boots (Rubber for wet days/water crossings)
   Headlamps
   Game bags
   Rangefinders
   Gun cases
   Ground blinds or layout blinds
   Emergency Preparedness Kits
   Coolers
   Decoys
   Kayaks/Boats
   And more!
         
Thank you for reading and considering getting involved.

Pictures:
  #1: Deer hunting for pastors in Eastern, WA. This trip was funded by donors from this site and others.

  #2: Duck hunting for a pastor & son in Western, WA. This trip was hosted by me, all clothing, gear, etc. donated to the father and son to keep thanks to donors on Hunting-Washington!
