Men’s Outing in August 5 – 8, 2021

April 2021 Turkey Hunt Davis Ranch

Another Great Event at the Davis Ranch

Last week, I headed back to Jacksboro Texas for another event. This time with a turkey hunt for those who came. After a couple of dropouts from scheduling and sickness, we finished with 9 strong. Four of them had never been. Darrell, Tracy, Ken, and Jimmy would experience what we do there twice each year. And I think we may have sealed the deal with Tracy and Jimmy. Both bagged a turkey (their first), and Tracy won the shotgun! (We told him; he probably needs to buy a lottery ticket on his way home)

Besides the great hunting, we had fantastic conversations, learned some things about God and his daily presence and how our faith and man’s outlook affect us and others we are impressionable to.  God is good!! As always, we ate like kings from breakfast to late in the evening. These meals are always topped off by our standard fajita night and Joe’s cobbler that he makes in his Dutch oven.​

Below are some pictures, but even though they don’t tell the stories, I hope you can see the joy these guys bring to me and to Outdoor Truths.

Look for Ken’s bacon-cooking skills, and what’s not seen were his words of wisdom.

Check out Jimmy’s proud display of this turkey, after flying all the way from Detroit to be with us.

And then there’s Jason who can do anything, has become regular attender, and is all about jumping in and helping as is Joe, who’s wisdom and heart is as big as the sky, of course his cobbler alone is why we welcome him.

I appreciate Darrell for forgoing his own opportunity to hunt to be a guide.

And of course, our host John, who among other gifts, has the gift of hospitality. Check out the pic of the gift of appreciation we presented him with.

January 2021 Hunt Davis Ranch

For the past several years, I’ve been taking Outdoor Truths to the Davis Ranch in Jacksboro, Texas. We now do it twice each year. One weekend is about the hogs and the other is about the turkeys. Both however, are about eating, fellowship, and growing our faith. 


It’s also about a lot of fun, and one guy always leaves winning a gun. These events are designed for no more than 12 men. We have found this is our perfect number. Back in January, I got to hang out with some of my favorite people once again, and it proved to be another unforgettable weekend.

Check out the pictures below, and if you would like more information about attending one of these outings, or hosting one, shoot me an email. They have quickly become my favorite way to engage with men about faith and the outdoors.

January 2021 Midland Event at Lake Ivy

Way to go Midland!

Back in January, several guys from Stonegate Church Midland Texas left for Lake Ivy to spend Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, hanging out, eating, and talking about Life’s Greatest Adventure. Living by Faith. We stayed at a beautiful lake house with a view to die for. During the day, some fished, some played cornhole, and the rest just, well, rested and shared stories. I appreciate Kyle Rodgers, Men’s Groups Leader, at Stonegate for inviting Outdoor Truths to share with his great men. I met new people and made some new friends. Check out the pictures of the facilities and some of the guys who were there.
