Christmas Survey

Recommended Posts

Just out of curiousity....How many of you will open presents Christmas morning, and then race to the ice to escape the "family scene"..? Not that it's a bad thing, but I'd rather be on the ice... wink.gif

I have done that the past few years, but my little guy is 18 months old and this is the first real family Christmas for us, so it will be a whole family day for me. Thinking the 26th will be a full day and night staring at the vex though! Hmmmm.... maybe I should get a second battery from Santa!

Yup, we will go out tommorow morning , come in to open gifts at the parents in the evening. Go out xmas morning, come back to open gifts in the evening and than make a weekend of it Friday, Saturday, Sunday . I just love it that my wife likes to fish as much as I do or there would be problems.

Well, I has to be in town, to work and to be available in case something goes wrong. So...

since SWMBO wants to go to her folks, it does kind of leave me here w/ time on my hands - er - time on the ice. smile.gif

Going to do the present thing tomorrow night, then SWMBO and the kids head N on Christmas morning. I'm on the ice all afternoon/evening for as long as I want, work a half day Fri, then out on the ice. Do some chores Sat morning, then out on the ice, much the same on Sunday. I'd say by the time SWMBO comes home on Sunday, I should be "fished out".

Hope you guys do well.

I am going to have to wait till after dinner.Every one will get a little sleepy after stuffing their faces and when they nod off, I am off! smile.gif
Now that plan will work if I can only refrain from eating 2 or 3 helping of everything and I don't nod off first! smile.gif

My family has a long-standing Christmas tradition. Ever since I can remember we would wake up early, open presents, eat breakfast, and we'd all be out on the ice by about 9 am or so. Catch a few fish, come back and fry them up for a late lunch. This year was no different, and the girlfriend even joined us!!

    • Mmm mm Thanks!!!!!!!!
    • your package went in the mail today!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • Figured I'd loop back on this with an update.  I ended up getting the Weber Spirit 3 burner.  Picked it up at Ace Hardware.  Its the same price everywhere ($449) but Ace will assemble it, deliver it, and haul away the old one for no charge.  Bought it Saturday morning had it sitting on the back patio by 3pm that same afternoon.   I ended up looking at a lot of grills including many brands of gas grills, pellet grills, and some charcoal grills.  There were some other gas grills that I liked, they looked to be made solidly from good materials and they came at a decent price.  However, they all lacked a decent warranty.  The webers use less stainless steel than some of the others and I'm not 100% sure what the china production will do to the quality and longevity of a Weber but they do come with the best warranty that I saw.  I believe grates and flavorizer bars have a 5 year warranty and everything else has a 10 year warranty.  Customer service and part availability was also a big selling point.  Weber parts look to be easily available and if you do end up having to replace the grate, flavorizer bars, and burners it will only set you back $150 which should get you many more years out of the grill.    I let my almost 3 year old son pick the color since he came with to help pick it out.  I couldn't argue with his choice of red.  It is clearly the fastest looking grill, now I just need to add a racing stripe. 
    • Saturday morning I was able to put my tag on a nice bird. If I did no get to put some scouting time in I would of moved too fast. I knew these bird was going to show up but he never made a peep on roost or the ground. I was able to call in the hens with him following. The hens yelped twice on the ground and that was it. Had other birds gobbling but I knew this guy was around. It was him with 3 Jakes and 3 hens that pretty much stayed by themselves and nothing to do with the larger group of birds. I was able to see him the Saturday before opener and trail cameras showing he was coming through around 720 each morning. I shot him at 7:15 plan worked out great. 20 Gauge is becoming my favorite gun for turkeys. He was just a couple oz’s shy of 24lbs. double beard 11inch, spurs 1inch. Some big birds dropping. My dads was 25lbs and Protourbait above 24. Might head back to NE this weekend see how the week goes. I have WI left for a couple tags.
    • I personally don't use hens often.  When I do she's in a breeding position near a strutting tom.  I usually go jakes of various postures or no decoys.  I like to keep them guessing where that hen is at.  I've had too many mature Tom's hang up, strut and gobble until the real hens show up to escort him away when using just hens.
    • What would be the reasoning behind just using hen\ hens decoys? To put the toms at ease? I usually use the standard hen / jake combo.
    • Nice!   Yep, that looks just the way I hope to find em!  Nada for me but maybe if I get some time in the turkey woods I’ll have some better luck.
    • That's one cut I need to do on the pellet smoker. Everything so far has turned out real moist and tender,  I'm guessing since the door seals up so tight. I prefer as well to slice that day, the leftovers can go in the crockpot for shredding.. I better go get one.
    • Num that looks awesome. Bet the carcass would boil up to make a mighty fine tasty soup too!
