It’s typical for enthusiastic Christmas decorators to showcase Santa Claus and his reindeer, but one Ohio resident decided to show jolly Saint Nicholas hunting whitetails instead. While the spectacle is anything but ordinary, centralohio.com reported that Pastaskala homeowner Matt Stuller received nothing but praise.
“It’s for the hunter that can appreciate a little humor,” said Stuller. “People drive by and come back and even take pictures.”
Using hundreds of lights, Stuller’s front lawn is now a dazzling display of prancing deer and flying arrows—simulated with flashing lights, of course. A plywood Santa and another hunter sit up in Stuller’s tree and aim their bows while a lighted snowman idles nearby. It is an idea that Stuller, an avid bowhunter, has been building up for the past three years.
“You can’t have the same old theme as everyone else,” Stuller told centralohio.com. “It would be boring.”
The hunter estimated that it takes about two weeks for him to set up the display. You can see a video of Stuller’s creation below:
