Some of you out there are excited about spending time this Thanksgiving with loved ones. Many are hoping that a certain cousin doesn't take an extra helping of mashed potatoes this year or secretly pray that Mom has finally figured out how to make the gravy a little less lumpy. Others are looking forward to a few good days of hunting.
Outdoor writer Lisa Metheny, on the other hand, decided to take a little extra pre-Thanksgiving time to ensure her family's holiday feast would be a plentiful one. Pictured to the left, Metheny took her trusty Benelli Vinci .12 gauge to the outdoors of Elk City, Oklahoma to bag these two beautiful gobblers. How's that for a few good days of hunting.
A favorite of American founding father Benjamin Franklin, the turkey has been a Thanksgiving staple since the Pilgrims hit Plymouth Rock. Some of the original menu items – such as berries, pumpkin and squash – are still part of the average American's bill of fare. Others original items – like fish, lobster and clams – have fallen out of favor for most.
Whatever part of the menu or family you're looking forward to enjoying this Thanksgiving, we here at NRAblog hope that you and your loved ones enjoy a safe and happy holiday filled with the warmth of the season and maybe even a second helping of pumpkin pie.
From our NRAblog family to yours, have a great Thanksgiving.
