We often hear Guns and others involved in the shooting industry and sport mention saying prayers to Saint Hubert. Who was Saint Hubert and why do we offers prayers to him?
Saint Hubertus was widely venerated during the Middle Ages. The iconography of his legend is entangled with the legend of Saint Eustace. The Bollandists published seven early lives of Hubertus (Acta Sanctorum, November, i., 759–930 AD); the first of these was the work of a contemporary, though it is very sparing of details.
By saying a prayer to Saint Herbert a person is hoping that they may shoot straight, that there will be bountiful game and that there will be good sport between the hunter and their quarry.
