    I try every year to get in a rabbit hunt in every X-mas. My dad did it with my brothers and I and I want to do it with my kids one day.

    Me and Dad will be in the stand Christmas morning. We're doing our family Christmas stuff this evening. Big storm coming in Christmas night, so I'm hoping the deer will really be moving all day tomorrow. Can anyone say Christmas Buck? :D

    Gonna hit the stand this afternoon and tomorrow. Already did the Christmas presents and everything this morning. My girlfriend and her son went out of town so I will be doing an evening hunt today and probably an all day sit tomorrow. :)

    Good luck to everyone that hits the woods tomorrow. It would be awesome to harvest a deer on Christmas day!

    I was planning on it, but today kind of dashed my hopes. About an inch of crusty snow atop a layer of crunchy ice makes a quiet entry impossible. 9am and not even a glimpse of a deer in the distance. Going to sit a little longer than planned, hoping this snow cover has them rooting a little longer feeding.

    Not supposed to get above freezing so the snow won't be any better tomorrow.

    Yup, I'll been in the stand in the evening. I've seen a big buck 20 min before dark cross an open field and enter a the timber in the exact same spot the last two sits. I am going to make a play on him in hopes Santa will be good to me!

    My dad arrives Christmas evening and we will be in the woods together trying to fill our remaining tags for the next week. I got until the 31st to fill three tags, two archery and one AO rifle.
