Thanksgiving Day Tradition

Hey guys, with Thanksgiving tomorrow, I was wondering if any one had any traditions as far as hunting. For the past several years I usually take my Dad out for bunnies. But this year it won't be.
So my daughter wants to go hunting and suggested squirrel. And she wants to have one for dinner Thanksgiving. So I thought great idea maybe start a new tradition. Now the weather looks very windy and cold, but she's real excited. I hope we can get one. On any other day I'd say it would be easy but this could be difficult.

Re: Thanksgiving Day Tradition

I was just thinking the other day how my Dad and uncles and I always went rabbit hunting in the morning before Thanksgiving dinner. It is no longer a tradition they are all gone now. I'm the only one left now.

Sounds like it's time to start a new one then.

I think it might be a little late to start a new tradition I will be 78 in February.

Re: Thanksgiving Day Tradition

When I was little my dad would take me small game hunting every Thanksgiving morning then when I was old enough to go myself I would until the last few years. I dont have dogs so it would always be squirrels. I need to take stands down tomorrow so thats what Ill be doing all morning.

2F for a while...

Re: Thanksgiving Day Tradition

When my dad was still with us, he and I and my two brothers would always hunt thanksgiving morning. Even when we were not old enough to hunt we went out with dad on thanksgiving morning.

Re: Thanksgiving Day Tradition

My dad use to take my brother and I pheasant hunting on thanksgiving morning. Now it's just me and tomorrow I will be hitting the grouse woods with the dog.

Re: Thanksgiving Day Tradition

My Dad always took me and my brothers waterfowl hunting, a tradition we'll be continuing in a few hours. There's no hunt that I look forward to more.
