Anyone got any hunts planned for Thanksgiving day?
My son is coming home from college on Tuesday before the holiday. He wants to do a squirrel hunt at least once while he's home. I'm thinking that may be the perfect morning to go out, weather permitting of course.
We have a tradition of pheasant hunting my grandparents farm on Thanksgiving. Been doing it for about 7-8 years now. Itís me my uncle, my nephew, son in law, youngest daughters boyfriend, and 2 good friends. Canít wait to be honest, although this will be the first year my GSP wonít participate. Sheís having a hard time getting around at 13. I think she had her last hunt last Saturday . Enjoy the time with your son and get out. Donít let the weather stop you!
My brothers, myself and my dad have been going to a ringneck preserve by us on Thanksgiving morning for the last 25 years. Dad has been gone 3 years and the dog has been gone for 3 months, but we're still going to give it a go - gotta keep the tradition alive!
Dad always took us boys out for waterfowl on Thanksgiving morning. I can only speculate it's been close to 30 years now. I think the only time one of us missed it was when my older brother was studying abroad one year. It's not always the best action some years, but it's one of the hunts that I look forward to every year.

I use to always hunt wild pheasant with my Dad and brothers Thanksgiving morning then come home and eat the big meal then veg out in a food coma and watch football. Now my brother, nephew, son and I will run the beagles Thanksgiving morning at my Mom's house then eat and watch football. It has always been my favorite holiday by far and I have so many great memories of our Thanksgiving hunts and time together.
