Merry Christmas gents. Remember the real reason for the season. A Son is born, a Savior is given.

“Bagged this 9 footer” reminds me of the 1970’s. My kids were small. I was running a trap line along the river we lived on. We lived in a mobile home at the time. My wife said it was time to get a Christmas tree. I said I know where there are few nice ones. I had seen them while checking my lines. I always carried my shotgun with me. This wasn’t planned , but probably the next day or so, I found myself near those trees. I forgot to bring a saw. I got this bright idea to shoot the tree. Can’t remember if it took one shot, two shots or more; but if you get a few inches from the tree with the barrel, it works like a charm. I shot the Christmas tree for the year. Whenever I came in from the trap line I would knock on the window. My wife would hold the kids up to show them what I caught that day. That day of the “tree killing” became a family tradition . When you live in a mobile home, it doesn’t require a big tree, so it worked great. My wife and I were both working at the time. When someone at work would ask her where we are getting our Christmas tree, my wife would say “ my husband shoots ours every year.. as our family grew, so did our houses. I continued to “harvest”; trees using that method for years. Can’t remember how long I did it, but it was fun..anyone else out there ever try that?? Merry Christmas everyone.

When I was a kid we got our trees off the tops of big spruce. Two of my uncles logged and we simply went around and cut the top off a good one.

Here’s our little tree - a real Trophy to us because it’s our first Christmas in OUR house... Been a long road since the big hurricane.

I’m especially stoked about that long, skinny package on the piano.... you think maybe the paper holds a clue?

A few lights go out every day, kinda like a Christmas count down. Merry Christmas and a blessed New Year.

About 20 years ago my brother hid behind one that was placed in the abandoned chicken coop used for recycling at a hobby farm. The deer passed by it on a regular basis on their way to the field, he double lunged one while I was way back in the woods/edge of field on stand, watching in disbelief..

I like this one since it shows the tree decorated before 3 full rows of lights burnt out and my daughter is giving my wife the business as she's trying to get her to pose
