Yup, everyone have a good one. I've decided to do the right thing and stay home tomorrow and help the better half.I have done a lot of hunting so far. She may have a problem wrestling the 28 lb bird we have to cook. I'll be sticking it to the ducks and geese Friday and Saturday though, and can't wait for Monday to tote the slug gun around the deer woods. Enjoy!

daymunnn, baymen...28 lb bird!?!?!

good luck out there, everybody. stay safe and enjoy the holiday!! :beer: im waiting for the rain to end so i can load up the canoe for a quick morning hunt before a turkey coma ensues. favorite holiday of the year! you get to enjoy a great meal with family and do not have to buy lots of gifts. in my case, just a nice bottle of German Riesling to go with dessert.
I would rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.

Happy Thanksgiving everybody. I'm going to try to make up for some lost time Friday and Saturday. Have only been out 3 days this season and the last trip was only an hour long outing. I haven't fired a shot yet this season. That's going to change come friday morning.
A serious reduction in the population of black ducks would mean the end of waterfowl hunting for the majority of the New England sportsmen.

Here's the 28 pounder. Grown by my neighbor. He does a bunch each year and throws a turkey night party with tons of food and drink, and then you just grab the bird and go home. Luckily he lives behind me and I can walk home :beer:

Just got back to the site after a few busy days away from the computer. Hope everybody had a safe Thanksgiving. I cooked my first Thanksgiving this year and the centerpiece of the meal was a 28.5 pound bird that a friend of mine raised. You appreciate the meal so much more when you process your own bird. It was also the first time I hot water dipped a bird and that made the job wicked easy.
