Podcast Ep. 260: Reverend Hunter Tony Jones on Hunting, Dogs, and God

Host Bob St.Pierre is joined by Tony Jones, an adult-onset hunter, theologian, author, professor, podcaster, and former pastor. Jones has just released a new book, The God of Wild Places with the subtitle “Rediscovering the Divine in the Untamed Outdoors.” In the book, Jones writes about the role pheasant hunting, bird dogs, and wild meat have played in shaping his new perspective on life following a tumultuous divorce.   

Episode Highlights:
  • The guys start off the episode with a spirited flusher vs. pointer debate. 
  • Jones tells the funny story of trading preaching services for pheasant hunting expertise and land access.  
  • The discussion ends with a preview of Backcountry Hunters & Anglers annual Rendezvous taking place at the Minneapolis Convention Center on April 19 & 20 where Tony will be selling his books and where PF & QF will have a membership booth.
