Joy of Farmin Ella S. Galford Many years ago the Jewish people held a Thanksgiving cele- bration which they called the Festival of Booths. This occurred just after the barley harvest, They built booths or shelters of branches and vines and lived in these shelters for a week as they feasted. This celebrated not only their current harvest but was a reminder of their once being a Nomadic people wandering in the wilderness. Thus they thanked God for caring for their forefathers in the Wilderness and for providing them a country and home. We trace our Thanksgiving heritage to the celebration held by the l~ilgrims and their Indian guests. During that first winter, living in the wilderness without access to grocery stores and medical supplies, the pilgrims suffered famine and illnesses. With the help of the Indians. those who survived enjoyed a bountiful harvest. So they thought it only proper to have a feast and thank God for helping them survive and conquer. We are told that for three days they feasted on venison, turkey, cranberries, pumpkin pies and I am sure, a great vari- ety of foods grown and gathered from the wilderness. The typical Thanksgiving picture today shows a large group of people surrounding a table laden with food and crowned by a golden- roasted turkey. Venison isn't in- cluded as one of the typical Thanksgiving foods because most American people have no access to this meat as deer have never been tamed and grown on a comnlerclal scale. Now. after consuming the typical Thanksgiving dinner, we are told that most American males settle themselves In front of the T.V. where they might drowse as they watch the big football game. It is obvious that the painters of this picture knew nothing about deer season in West Vir- ginia. Anyone who is a hunter or lives with a hunter knows this is Day. After a hasty a multitude ofspeclal clothing must be donned. Then loaded down with gun, shells, hunting knife and lunch he heads to the wilderness. It is an unwritten but strict law that the hunter must be in the wilderness by day break. Sometimes a group of hunters work together. Part of them will get on stands -- anyplace they believe would be a natural place for deer to pass -- while the rest go through the woods making noises which they hope will scare the deer towards those waiting on the stands. Then there are hunters who scorn this method. They believe to hunt you should walk not less than five miles. (They probably suffer cold and boredom unless they are walking.) These look for deer spore and try to trail the deer and get within shooting distance of them. Perhaps they will startle a deer from some laurel or brush thicket or maybe another hunter has spooked one and it will come fleeing towards them. Occasion-. ally hunter meets other hunters. Some have already gotten their deer and time Is taken to admire it while the lucky one tells just how It "was bagged. In any event, much information is exchanged as to where each had been, how many deer were sighted, and whether they were does or bucks and if a buck how big was his antler spread. The lucky hunter must field dress his deer, drag it out of the woods (how many miles is it back to the truck -- and get it checked before they can think of Thanksgiving dinner. The farmer/hunter begins to think of his farm animals. Even though someone else has promised to do the chores he feels he had better check on the animals just to be sure everything was done right. Finally, as darkness overpowers day, family and friends gather to share the Thanksgiving meal. Both lucky and unlucky hunters relive their day as they share with all others their many ex- the Day to go after a venison, ploits In the wilderness.
