North Dakota Game and Fish Department Courtesy Photo Thanksgiving is a day for spending time with family and friends. The Dickinson Press outdoors reporter Royal McGregor has spent a majority of his Thanksgivings walking in the field with his dad, grandpa, uncles and cousins. Though the main objective was to find pheasants, he found something more -- lasting memories with his family.

Lasting memories


In the 24 years of my life, this will be the first Thanksgiving I won't spend with my family.

Not being able to make it back home for the Thanksgiving gives me time to reflect on all the memories I had with my family during this holiday.

A majority of the memories that stand out in my mind weren't spent around the dinner table. The memories were spent out in my grandpa's field hunting pheasants.
