What sort of pic would expect to walk away with the top prize for Wildlife pic?

Something heartwarming, like a bear and her cub?

A striking image of man and nature, with rich earth tones?

An aquatic scene, rippling with movement?

Maybe something that speaks for itself?

A flurry of color and movement captured at that perfect moment?

What’s not to like about a photo of a wolf alone in winter?

Speaking of ‘movement’, this one is loaded with it. So playful.

Did you forget that rabbits fight, too? Silhouetted in the snow, great shot.

The phosphorescent moss is trying to outshine the night sky.

Adorable kid. Not so sure about her hat, though.

Here’s a photo of a thief.

…an egg thief.

None of those was ultimately the winner. The actual winner was a much more somber subject.

It’s a ‘message piece’ that captures the devastating consequences of poaching.

The reason you want hunters who are committed to the long-term conservation of nature? It is because hunters stand opposed to the bastards who pull stunts like that.

In fact, hatred for poachers is one of the few things that hunters and animal-rights activists truly have in common. And — it might surprise PETA — we hate them for some similar reasons.

No, not their cult of animals-are-people-too, never that. We stand opposed the whole destruction of any species.

Get Doug Giles’ book, Rise, Kill and Eat: A Theology of Hunting from Genesis to Revelation today!

If a person looked to Scripture and paid particular attention to the passages within the Bible that address the topic of hunting, then they’d walk away thinking not only is hunting animals tolerated but it is endorsed by God. And that’s exactly what this little book is about: proving that God, from Genesis to Revelation, is extremely cool with hunters and hunting. I’ll go out on a biblical limb and claim right off the bat that you cannot show me, through the balance of the Bible, that the God of the Scripture is against the responsible killing and the grilling of the animals He created. ~Doug Giles
