When my oldest daughter was about four years old, we awoke her early one Easter morn to “hunt” for some colored eggs that her ever-such-a-great mommy had hidden in the yard the night before.  Grace was still in her jammies and her hair all awry as she started for the backdoor.  I knew once she found that first egg, the true meaning of the day might be lost, so I grabbed her little arm.

“Honey, do you remember what the true meaning of this day is?” I said leaning down so I could look into her eyes.

“Sure Daddy,” she paused.  “He came alive!”

I couldn’t have said it better myself.  

Happy Resurrection Day and praise to Him who “…came alive!”


“I know that my Redeemer lives and that in the end He will stand on the earth.”

Job 19:25

Robby Denning
Robby Denning started hunting mule deer in the late 1970’s, only missing one season in 35 years. At 25, he gave up the pursuit of all other big-game to focus on taking the best bucks possible. He began hunting the West on a DIY budget hunting an average of 30 days a year for mule deer. Robby loves the hunt as much as the kill and the entire process from research to scouting to hunting. He’s killed four bucks over 200 inches in the last 15 seasons, mostly on easily-obtained tags. He owns a public-land scouting service and runs a private-land outfitting business helping other hunters in their pursuit of deer and elk. Robby has scouted and hunted literally thousands of square miles of mule deer country and brings a wealth of knowledge about these experiences with him. To him, the weapon of choice is just a means-to-an-end and will hunt with bow, rifle, or muzzleloader – whatever it takes to create an opportunity to take a great mule deer. He is also the author of "Hunting Big Mule Deer" available on Amazon. Robby believes all of creation is from God for man to manage, respect, and through which to know its Creator

    The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid; for I know that you are looking for Jesus who has been crucified. 6″He is not here, for He has risen, just as He said. Come, see the place where He was lying.

    Matthew 28:5-6
