A Deer Every Christmas...


Never fails....either with time booked off or it's over the scheduled shut down, Kristen goes hunting and shoots a deer at Christmas.

The very first deer he shot was 4 years ago, around 8:30 in the morning of Christmas Eve. We were in such a panic to get it to the Butchers before he closed for the holidays. Then the last two years he shot one but both times got away (realized it was the broadhead he was using, its the tip of the arrow for those of you who don't know hunting lingo) And then last night here we go again, he went hunting with an old neighbour of ours and around 6:15 he shows up saying Christa I got a buck!! I get so excited cause he's so excited. He said he had a chance to shoot at a second buck but the neighbour showed up two minutes too soon and scared it away. Maybe next time honey, but I sure am proud of you. Only 11% of bow hunters are successful, guess this means my honey bunny does have talent. Just kidding honey, not only is it something you're good at, I'm fully aware that it's your passion too. Congrats on the kill!

Sherry killed one with her truck the other day and we keep teasing her that it was one of Santa's reindeer. lol. At this rate, Santa is not going to make it anywhere this year.
