    We are delivering to our families, some of who are isolating. I’m picking up a smoked turkey and all the sides here shortly from Lazy Bones. We are going to package up meals for our parents, all 4 in their 70’s, her sister and husband (she is in final stages of beating breast cancer) and then we’re going to relax at home with our part of the meal, some wine and the hot tub.

    With the action you're having in the field I'd opt morning hunt then watch the Lions comedy show.

    I'll be hunting, taking my buddies son hunting with me in the morning. Need to get him home for his family dinner at 2pm. I'll stop in there, have a bite to eat, then back on stand hopefully for the last 2 hours. Then, I'm supposed to go over to a friends house after the afternoon hunt to have dinner with them at around 630pm. All my family is in the Detroit Area, so I am staying here, I got to take care of my dogs, cats, etc. anyways. I hope I kill a big buck Thursday and can use it as an excuse just to stay home. I have always thought it'd be cool to kill a buck on Thanksgiving Day.

    Didn't see a "working" option in the poll, so I guess I can't play.

    Mar will be getting dinner ready for the three of us while Im working. We'll be staying home isolating. Both out families are down state, both dads are very high risk, couple toddlers among the children, and my siblings and/or their spouses are also in risky vocations. Most are isolating as well. At least maybe I can get some evening hunts in, rather than driving all weekend.

    I guess we isolate every year since the family feast matriarchs (those who would take charge of the cooking rites) passed away. On my side mainly, my wife's immediate family unit was very small and mostly void of men long before I knew her.

    I hope that none of us forget all the people such as yourself who will be working on this and all the other holidays. Medical folks, public safety, military, and those who keep the gears moving so everyone else can do their thing.

    In my working life I have done all of the above. Kudos to all who serve or have served in those capacities, especially during these unprecedented times. I appreciate your acknowledgement.
     
  12. Easiest decision in the world. Hunt all day. Lions are losers and will continue to be for a long time.

    My wife,me and our 3 lovely daughters will be eating the traditional dinner by ourselves at our house. I voted "isolating", but, those four are the absolute world to me.
