Thanksgiving Notes for 2010

Food HuntingSomewhere I heard of a Thanksgiving tradition of the man of the house going out and shooting something, I guess preferably a turkey, on Thanksgiving day.  I could go look up the source, but I’d rather just envy the idea and plan a trip for next year. 

Next Thanksgiving, I’d like to take the Belgian 12ga SxS out to some land (that I aint bought, the first predicament this publication is in), with 10 rounds of assorted shotgun shells: buckshot, no4′s and no8′s.  I’ll assemble a crew of guns, maybe, and we’ll all head out before daylight to see what we can’t shoot.  Then, we’ll come back to the house, clean up whatever we have, and try to make a meal out of it (the cooking part of the challenge).

For some reason, I get the feeling that we’ll end up eating assorted rodents under this plan, so I’ll have to get creative.
