“Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison; and make me savoury meat, such as I love, and bring it to me, that I may eat,”—Genesis 27:3-4. Isaac loved to eat wild game! Hunting through the centuries was often a necessary skill to help a man provide for his family and ensure their survival. Nowadays, it is coming to be considered more of a sport, but much of the game taken today still finds its way to the dinner table. This is as it should be. Hunting is a skill, and there is enjoyment and thrill in plying the skill. However, our God created everything for a purpose, and He created nothing to be wasted. Thus, we are to hunt with that purpose in mind.
Hunting is a skill that involves learning a number of things (safety being the most important) beyond just the taking of game. It is also extremely helpful to hunt at first with someone experienced in order to “learn the ropes” so to speak. Thus, this award may be earned by someone who may not yet be old enough to actually fire a weapon during a hunt, by simply learning the required knowledge and participating in a hunt.
