Uncle Mike’s Top Ten Christmas Wish List

By Mike Giles / Outdoors Writer
The Meridian Star

MERIDIAN —     Every outdoors person has a list of things that they need, and almost all of us have items that we want. If you’re a hunter or angler, sometimes you also want something you need. When you need something you want, then you’re right on target! I might not always get what I want, although I usually do, and I always get what I need. Here’s a list of some of my favorite Christmas wishes.

10. Color wood grunt call and owl hoot call from Joey’s Custom Calls.

9. Kent Turner custom made deer skinner with antler handle.

8. Paul Meek’s Copper caller.

7. Drake Outdoors Waterfowler’s coat

6. Mossy Oak Graphics kit for my Toyota Tacoma truck.

5. Aaron Pogue stabilized corn on the cob skinning knife.

4.  Mark McPhail’s National Champion scratch box call.

3. Berretta A 400 Extreme autoloading shotgun for turkey and duck hunting.

2.  Twelve pound bass from Triple D Ranch.

1. Ten point buck. This one is at the top of my list each Christmas and is negotiable. I would even take an eight point, but would prefer something bigger like a 12-pt or 14-point
