Back on November 17, residents of Cedarwood Station went hunting.

No, not out outside in the wilderness hunting, but they did get to shoot at employees who were dressed up as deer.

Jennifer Harbour,  the activity coordinator at Cedarwood Station explained exactly what went down.

"We set up all of the Christmas trees in the lobby and then armed our residents with Nerf guns, and put antlers on all of our staff. We would have some fun running around the Christmas trees and seeing how many of our residents could hit us and the targets."

According to Harbour, everybody had a fantastic time.

"We were very impressed by their skills and their accuracy. Many of us were taken out by our residents. We all had such a great time, it was such a laugh."

When asked about how the idea came about, she stated she saw it online with multiple people recommending it to her.

"this one video, in particular, of a deer hunt happening at a seniors home, was shared by multiple people in my network. This is something that I had seen, and I'm like, oh, my goodness, we have to try and make this happen."

Harbour mentioned with everybody having so much fun, this will probably be a new yearly activity.

"We had one resident who came up to us afterwards and she said to us, I haven't had this much fun since I was a kid."
