2660795085f911e3a5dd1267b18550af_8For the past two years I’ve had the privilege of joining my father and the Men’s Ministry at Port Ann Wesleyan Church (where my dad pastors) for their annual rabbit hunt. This year nearly 30-men split up in teams of 4, 5, and 6 and took off to various locations around Snyder County, PA for a day of fellowship and hunting. We all reconvened back at the church by 2PM to share our stories and crown the team with the most bagged game.

Last year our team of four got skunked without even a shot fired to our team. This year thankfully, we fared a bit better with three rabbits and a squirrel among our team of six. That amount, however, pales in comparison to the winning-team this year who brought home 11-rabbits and 2-squirrels to win for the second year in a row. I’m still not convinced that one of their team members doesn’t have a well-stocked rabbit pen that they visit each year. :)

I carried my chest-mounted GoPro this year and captured a couple hours of crawling-through-the-brush footage with only a few highlights to account for the almost 6-hours we were in the woods. Here is an almost 3-minute video from the hunt:

Thanks, Port Ann Wesleyan for inviting this out-of-county-er to come and join in the hunt! I’m already looking forward to next year!
