As for tradition I use to go out every Thanksgiving morning duck hunting.
I haven't done that in years.   :bash:
Now I get up and have a couple of cups of coffee and get in my wife's hair   :chuckle:
Then I went out and checked a couple rats traps that I set out two days before.
I picked up a nice triple
JC   :hello:

Duck hunting was my Thanksgiving tradition growing up solo hunting the ponds and creeks within walking distance of the house as soon as I was old enough to solo my dad would hand my his winchester model 37 single shot 16 and 7 shells. Always said "limit is seven so you better only need seven shell's they aren't cheap!" Best I ever did was 3 green wing teal and 2 mallards and I was very pleased with that result but he was a might confused when I handed him 4 shells back  :chuckle: my first ever collateral shot was a thriple on those teals. Since I started trapping it has replaced duck hunting for Thanksgiving tradition but I still pack the ol mossberg incase I see any ducks to add to the feast!

One of these days I may resurrect the Beaver Bait Station thread.
