In my opinion, tracking a blood trail after that shot was made is the second most exciting time of the hunt. Nothing can top the first excitement, which is the watching of the animal and then the shot. I have tracked many blood trails during the short 24 years of my life and it wasn’t till last year that it hit me while tracking the blood trail to a buck. I took my time following the spots of blood on the ground as I eventually walked up on the deer that I put long, hard hours in to get. Everyone has seen the excitement in someone’s eyes as they follow that blood trail to their trophy and the anticipation is almost unbearable at that point. A sigh of relief is made and the feeling of an accomplishment in life is felt inside that bowhunter. No one can argue that this is yet another success story in their hunting career, whether the hunter is professional or not.
This most recent blood trail that I followed made me realize that I followed a blood trail once when I was young. The blood trail that I am talking about is the one that leads to Jesus Christ, the one who has changed my life. I could only imagine that the blood trail He left as he was beaten and whipped before he was led the cross to pay for mine sins and yours. Every beating and every nail that was forced into the perfect Lamb of God, Jesus, screamed that he loved me so much that He would take my place on that cross. You see, God is perfect and we are not, therefore, He had to send his only Son to die for our sins on that cross and it is only through the blood of Christ that one can be saved. In Romans 3: 23 it says, “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” But God made a solution to this sin problem. In Romans 6: 23 it says, “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
The Blood Trail that my savior had was a trail to the cross where my sins were forgiven. Have you taken the step of faith and followed that same blood trail? If not I encourage you to do so. If anyone has any questions reguarding this topic please drop me a reply or an email.
