Thanksgiving Leftovers

Bear at deer carcass

The thing I like best about Thanksgiving dinner is the leftovers. (Well, that and pan dripping gravy.) Turkey sandwiches, turkey salad, turkey casserole--I like all of these better than the commercial turkey "main event." (Of course, with wild turkey, there are never leftovers.)

I've mentioned before that this holiday in Pocahontas County is most often called "Deer Season." We've been celebrating Deer Season on Droop Mountain in the customary way, and it turns out that Deer Season leftovers are also much appreciated.

The people who sell "game cameras" make them for scouting game before shooting it, but we seldom use things as intended. Instead, we've set up VarmintCam 1000 on the leftovers to see who stops by for a meal.

Raccoon pow-wow

Wow! A bear. I mean, we got raccoons down here in the flatlands, but a bear at the scrap heap, wow!
