This is my first year on the forum and I am really glad to have found it, and all the people who make it so fun to read and post here.

Hope you all had a very blessed turkey day with lots of good food and fellowship with family and friends.

happy thanksgiving to you and yours from me and mine.

I celebrate christmas more a social holiday for the positives meaning in general it supposed to carry.  good will, charity, putting best foot forward, all that.

I refuse to "start" christmas until Dec. 1 though.  can't do it.

Just finished off the night with coffee and beignets from our favorite coffee house, the Morning Call http://www.examiner.com/food-in-new-orleans/morning-call-has-the-best-beignets-caf-au-lait-new-orleans

Went with my wife, sister and brother n law and their kids.

Its always loud there and the coffee and beignets are superb.

We ate Thanksgiving dinner at my Mom and Dad's and had a full house. Food was very good, I'm stuffed!

Hope everyone had a great day!

Hope everyone survived the holiday, and their families... :-D  Pam and I spent it with my stepbrother and some of their friends outside of Gettysburg, PA.  From their house, you can see Little Round Top.  A great time was had by all.  As an added bonus, their place sits in the middle of 60 acres of apple trees, with nary a beehive around.  Can anyone guess what I'll be doing in the spring?

Have your bees surrounded by the hundreds of thousands of migratory beehives that are shipped in every year?

Have your bees in orchards with spray?

Looking to add SHB?

Am I getting close yet?

I know what I'd be doing right now, hunting the apple orchard for white tails!

Whitetails??? Don't remind me. I dressed out 2 Wed. night and 2 more yesterday morning. That's not counting the one left packed on ice Wed. night on my front porch. I have been cutting, grinding, slicing, freezing, and canning venison day and night for 2 days. Hopefully, I am caught up finally, unless the phone rings again.

None of the above.  They don't spray, and there are no other orchards nearby.  The nearest ones are about 7 miles away.  They bought the place when the previous owners went bankrupt, and left the apples to feed the deer and other critters.  There are no plans to make it an operational orchard.  They cleared a spot for a nice BIG garden, which is the original reason for needing my bees.  The surrounding properties are farms, with lots of berry patches and other goodies.  I'll put two hives there and see what happens.

JP, YES, for myself and my 3 freezers.

60 acres of apple trees and not use them? Must be some super rich folks to be able to do that.

Let's just say that they want for nothing....LOL.  They're planning to plant corn on some of the terraces this coming year, to help the deer population.  They also cleared a spot to put a couple of Black Angus, destined for the freezer, of course.  Nice people, who worked hard for what they got, and now are enjoying the fruits of their labors.  I'm just happy to be able to enjoy some of it with them... :-D

I do believe they are trying to INCREASE the population....LOL.  In the odd chance they ever want to remove some excess, I'll be sure to let you know.

Come on up. I have put enough away that I won't post the total number. Not sure what the limit is this year. There's still 30 plus days of season. Spend a week here and you should have 5 or more.

If you're serious, I just may take you up on it Iddee. I haven't taken a deer in three years. Although my wife is very happy with the alligator Schawee was nice enough to donate and the 65 lb pig I took October 2, she really, really misses venison backstrap.

I fry it after marinating it in McCormick's meat marinade breaded in flour and Italian bread crumbs.

Its so good ya wanna slap ya Mama!  :-D

We can shoot 12 deer here in Georgia and I have not had time or the place to go in years.  My wife just loves the stuff and "borrows" as much as she can from family and friends.  I really need to make time and go.   It is just so hard with a 4 year old around.   In a couple of years he will be old enough.  :)
