Just something to talk about. What are you most thankful for at this time of the year? We always have a great day and dinner with family. It's been a tradition for as long as I remember. Each year it seems we add a family member and sometimes we loose one. I guess it's life's balances that we deal with! Anyway, how do you spend Thanksgiving?
Sunday night son and I leave for S. Ohio gun season, hopefully get something in the freezer.

Hands down, Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday of the year! Don't know why, well... maybe it's the food, but still, I love it. I like the lazy day spent with family falling asleep and snoring so loud you can't hear the football game. Gotta love it. Laying around in agony for the next "round of food"! Even as a kid growing up, I love Thanksgiving more than anything.
Everyone have a good one, I know I will b/c I have alot to be thanful of! Health, Family, Family's health, and Freedom! That's pretty good

We sit around and get fat down here in TN too. Eat, watch football, and play cards or some other such game. If the weather's nice enough we spend some time with all the new kids (nieces and nephews) throwing a ball or shooting guns in the back yard.

Im thankful for the family we get to hang out with on this day.

I am going to miss the Friday afternoon hunt in AR. Seeing LSU tiger's blood is way too important to miss. I will be enjoying some deer chili and leftovers.

I've enjoyed Thanksgiving in many different ways over the years. This year will begin with me doing some hunting. It simply seems right to me on Thanksgiving morning. I'll head home then, clean up and help some with the prep for dinner. Looks like we will end up having the kids and their families on Friday night this year. To me, two Thanksgivings are even better than one.

I can also remember the times I was unable to spend Thanksgiving day with my family, when I was away during my military career. Thanksgiving, Christmas, anniversary and birthdays were all missed at some time and some were missed many, many times. Having mentioned that, I encourage all here who would like to, to mention our servicemen and women in their short offering before eating, perhaps.

They, after all, are the reason I and all of you as well, are able to sit and enjoy the four "Fs" Family, Friends, Food, Football and everything else connected to Thanksgiving.

Thanks, and I wish a very happy day tomorrow to all and especially to those overseas and serving on our behalf!! :yes:

I am thankful that the good Lord blessed me with a wife of 24 years who is a saint, 6 beautiful children , 6 grandchildren, a good job and a house.

My wife, son and I will be spending it alone this year. We usually invite people over that are alone for the holidays and have a houseful of people but we are taking this year off.

Oh and the two mulies I got this year after an 8 year drought with no venison.

For me, it was an especially thankfull day. On the Saturday before TG, four years ago, I was struck down with a terrible virus. I came within a broadhead blade of dying. I was not able to hunt for three years, could barely walk. Hunting a few hours each TG morning was a tradition with me that spanned a few decades. This year, I went.

I killed two deer just after good light, a small buck and a big doe and was home by 8:30. I enjoyed the day with family especially the grandkids and thanked the Higher Power for bringing me back and restoring the tradition. It was a special day for me.

Welcome back to the "world" of hunting. Having traditions like hunting and being able to pass those same traditions down to children and grand-children are priceless. Congratulations on such a special day.
