Gerry Caillouet

On this week's Trail to Adventure! Gerry is in the hills of Southeast Ohio on a visit with Mike Peters who is vice president of Christian Bowhunters of America. Mike is also the Chapter Chairman of the Lord of The Harvest Archery Club, a chapter of CBA. The two men talk about how men and women are using this archery/bowhunting worldwide ministry to build relationships in the lives of people they know who need Jesus. 95% of adults who come to Christ do so from a one on one relationship with a Christian working to build a relationship with them over a period of two years or more! Mike discusses numerous events that take place across the USA which open doors for those who love archery and have an impact on lives. One of these events is the Trophies of Grace Whitetail Deer Hunt that happens every year in the fall in southeast Ohio.

Now on this Trail To Adventure! of the radio program God’s Great Outdoors, we find Gerry taking the listeners to “The Cheese Head State” in the wilds of Wisconsin for the interview. An event targeting the youth in the Clark County area is the location where he and GGO board member, Arnie Wolf connects with Eric Hauge on Eric’s family’s farm. His farm abuts a huge county forest and is the perfect setting for the Wisconsin’s annual youth deer hunt.

Every aspect of the adventure is reviewed and “Safety First” is rule number one for the boys and girls who come! This ministry is Rushing Wind-Wisconsin; with the same care going into it Arnie practices at his fishing camps in Canada. And it works, having success stories that can be shared from the more than ten years of these hunts impacting the lives of future men and women for our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!

God's Great Outdoors - Paul Meeks - Monday, September 28, 2020

This week’s Trail To Adventure! is so important, as the topic is treestand safety. Gerry and his guest are at the annual Archery Trade Association Show, in Nashville, Tennessee. Gerry visits with Paul Meeks who started the API Outdoor Treestand Company, which by the time he sold it, was the number one manufacture of this type of product. Paul shares about the history of hunting from trees and how he got started in this outdoor industry with API, also being the first aluminum stand to appear on the market. Then when Paul eventually sold the business, he started the “Great Day” outdoor product line with an assortment of products designed for ATV users and such in North America with his son, Ilar Paul Meeks. Gerry and Paul spend the majority of this interview talking treestand safety to help the listeners understand the importance of the topic and tomseriously consider their need to wear safety harnesses while hunting and they also look at how Paul Meeks and API helped in the radio program’s beginnings!

God's Great Outdoors - Mitch Hoyt and Arnie Wolf - Monday, September 21, 2020

On this week’s Trail To Adventure! Gerry and wife Cyndi are visiting with Arnie and Dee Wolf at their home in Chili, WI. Gerry was invited to meet Mitch Hoyt and his wife Chris, to learn about their story. In this interview Arnie tells that an event done in the area needed a speaker and he’d contacted Mitch Hoyt to share with all who attended. Mitch, who is in a wheel chair because of a deer hunting treestand accident that took place on a September morning in 2006, began to tell how he was disabled. Part of this testimony relates to Mitch’s wife Chris having asked him to please not go on that day. But, the deer hunter chose to focus on his desires instead. Climbing into a friend’s treestand that had been hanging there for several years and before he’d safety harnessed up, he crashed to the ground. Finding himself immobile and with his one elbow wedged in a small tree’s crotch, thinking he would died caused a life’s reflection. God used this time stuck there to speak to Mitch and begin a heart change in him that makes this a “must listen to” interview as the Holy Spirit used it all to change his life, as you’ll see!

God's Great Outdoors - Jay Everett - Monday, September 14, 2020

On this week’s Trail To Adventure! treestand safety is the topic as Jay Everett from Hunter Safety Systems is this week’s guest. Gerry and Jay spend part of this interview talking treestand safety to help the listeners understand the importance of the topic and seriously consider their need to wear safety harnesses while hunting from an elevated platform. Statistics show that one out of three people that hunt out of a treestand will have an accident at some time in their life, with a number of these incidents being fatal. Jay relates facts on the safety harness and how their research reveals that most falls take place going up, getting into, coming out of and then descending to the earth. The goal of this program is to be sure that none of the listeners will become a part of the tragic statistic, on the negative side.

God's Great Outdoors - Tim Mahoney - Monday, August 24, 2020

On this week’s Trail To Adventure! we’ll be hearing of an Indiana Jones style hunting trip that started in the year of 2002! The guest, Tim Mahoney, who owns and runs Mahoney Media Studios, a film production studio in the “Twin Cities” of Minnesota, relates his story. It began when; Tim decided he had to visit Egypt. He traveled to the location where it is believed the Israelites lived while slaves in this foreign land. Tim had wanted to document the archaeological digs on film. In a discussion with a famous archaeologist, he was told that no evidence had been found to prove the Bible’s Book of Genesis story and on the Exodus or that Israelites had ever even lived in Egypt at all. This idea rocked Tim’s world and made him question his faith. So, he began doing an investigative study that unearthed all kinds of proof and also, produced the production of the “Thinking Man” documentary films. These include Patterns Of Evidence EXODUS, Patterns Of Evidence MOSES, and Patterns Of Evidence THE RED SEA MIRACLE, Part One & Part Two!

On this week’s Trail To Adventure! Gerry is visiting with Dr. Richard Swenson in Wisconsin and the two are talking about Intelligent Design. The truth is there is more of a chance mathematically that your car happened by accident over hundreds of millions of years, then just your eyeballs having evolved and how they work with your entire body? This is just one of the things that Dr. Richard Swenson shares in the interview with Gerry as they discuss this topic and Dr. Swenson’s book, “More Than Meets the Eye”. Having taught surgery at the University of Madison, Wisconsin, and having minored in physics, this interview is jam-packed with information that declares that we have a Creator God.
