Do Good

At Hunters for Good, our supporters experience that thrill of “doing good” because they are combining the sport they love with this desire to do good unto others. And those who hunt with us – our buddies and our family – they get to join us in doing good long after hunting season is over.

For those of us who are parents, we love to see our kids do something good, like give a homeless person some coins or donate a jacket and then watch how they physically react when they take that simple step of reaching out in love to another person. Like that first roller coaster they ride, as soon as the ride is over, they run back to get in line to do it again because something that much fun has to be experienced over and over again.

When you think about it, this country not only did the same thing, we made a holiday out of the act: Thanksgiving! That Thursday every year demonstrates the basis of our charity. We are thankful for the food God provides and we want to share it to help others be lifted up and to preserve the life we have been given.

This great country of ours was founded on the basis of lending a hand and making sure no one is left behind. Proof of this is in the Mayflower Compact, which was signed and ratified before anyone stepped on this land. Our forefathers declared they would “solemnly and mutually, in the presence of God and one another, combine ourselves together into a civil body politick, for our better ordering and preservation”. If we sort through all that language of their time, we find they expressly wanted to preserve this idea of freedom and growth for everyone, not just themselves. Those settlers signed an agreement to assure that they would not forget the direction in which they wanted their lives to be transformed.

When it comes down to it, doing good is a thrill, a life transformation. Every time you help Hunters for Good, you are feeding someone that high-protein venison you know is good for them. When you combine your hunting season with us, doing good is something you want to do over and over again. And we are carrying on the tradition our very country was built upon, which makes everyone feel better.
