Thanksgiving day hunts....

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!

Me and about 20,000 other folks have a little HS football game to attend in Easton, PA on Thanksgiving morning.

It was a family tradition when I was a teenager to go hunting with my Dad and Pap while my Mom and Gram worked on Thanksgiving dinner. This was back in the 60s!

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!

I will probably slip out for pheasants for a couple hours in the early morning before coming in, getting showered and heading to my family's Thanksgiving day dinner.

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.

We always get out for a couple hours in the morning. This year, we might hunt a little longer, cause someone else is cooking for a change......

If you're having trouble hunting for deer,
don't wish things were easier;
wish you were smarter.
