    My family stopped giving gifts due to the high cost of travel back to our hometown so we try to bring some local food/drink to share. We play stupid games like Bean Boozled or a family destroying game like Risk or Uno

    I don't like receiving gifts much and my family knows all I want from them is their company for an evening or afternoon and a satisfying meal shared.

    The greater universe gave me a root ball to snake out of my main and a bum wheel bearing to take care of yesterday though, lol. Merry Christmas, universe.

    This was the only "hunting " related gift I got. I have used it twice and am pretty happy with it.

    My Christmas haul was pretty good. I lost my binoculars on my deer hunt, and used this as an excuse to upgrade/replace pretty much all of my optics. Sold a lot of old gear to help pay for the new.

    Got a Kowa 883 spotting scope for times when weight is not an issue. Got a Kowa 554 spotting scope for weight conscious situations. Got some Zeiss 8x32 Victory binos (and Outdoor Vision harness) to use as my new go-to binos. Got some Kowas Genesis 10.5x44 for times when weight doesn't matter as much and I want more than 8x magnification. Sig Kilo 2400 for rangefinding and ballistics. Seek Outside Brooks backpack (will see if it can replace my McHale, that weighs 2 times more.) Also picked up some lightweight tripods and some Peltor electronic hearing protection. Lots of new stuff sitting around. Been hiking with it and testing it out. Can't wait to actually use it while hunting. (And got some new solid copper bullets because my wife and kids have told me that they won't eat meat that is shot with lead bullets.)
