    Do a lot of you guys/gals hunt on Thanksgiving morning? My late brother & I used to do a quick 3-4 hour duck hunt then go home, dress out some ducks (if we were lucky), clean up & head to Mom & Dad's for late/early dinner.

    Yep. My mom cooked or we went to neighbors a lot on T-giving. My father and I and a good bit of our crew would for sure hunt in the AM and go back in the afternoon(we didn't know any better). We got A LOT of $h!t because the women-folk wanted dinner at 6 and LST ended at 5ish and we still had to get out of the woods, get home and changed....

    A lot of folks deer hunt with hounds here. A ton of clubs have a morning hunt on T-giving.
    I'm simmering ham hocks to snaps with right now. :l

    I used to, but don't do it anymore. I'm pretty stoved up after hunting these days with my back, neck and legs. And I never sleep the night before a hunt, so I quit going a few years ago. It makes my day with family much more enjoyable. We get to hunt over 100 days out here so missing a few days to spend some quality time with my family and friends is a no brainer too me.

    Have a great Thanksgiving.

    If I get done with work in time we usually go out hunting roosters or coyotes.

    Always when growing up, but hunting then meant going out the door and letting a bird dog out of the kennel. As a single adult, I used to spend Thanksgiving at duck camp in AR. Once I had my own family it just didn't work due to distance, so it's been 23 years since I hunted on Thanksgiving. Looks like that window is opening again though.
