    No new archery gear for me I'm afraid. Besides, if I want it I get myself.

    Already have a new $400 bouyancy compensating vest for scuba diving. Then there's the new $800 regulator set I'm getting.

    So if you guys think archery is expensive you ought to try scuba diving. Tack on about $14,000 to $18,000 a year for trips to all parts of the world and you can see why I work part time in my retirement.

    Santa loves me! (my beautiful wife) I now have a ladder stand (THAT I DIDN'T ASK FOR). Also a pair of excellent hunting boots. A great Hunting back pack! Looks like hunting is going to be a little easier this year. Hope you have had a great Christmas.
