SEMPER FI fellas,and your 100% right. We should never forget the sacrifices made on our behalf. I have a son-in-law in country right now,and I really appreciate him and his brothers -in-arms. I can also let you know, that as one who has been they sure appreciate being thought of. I had my first oppurtunity to hunt the volunteer state this year and it was a little tough, but I had consistent gobbling,although only one gobbler came in to 50 yds and as I thought he was going to continue coming, I didn't smoke him. He strutted back and forth a couple times, then turned his tail to me ,in full strut, and walked back the way he came,going out of strut at about 60 yds. There was a hen just out of sight really cuttin' up a storm and the really enjoyable part was myself and partner arguing with the ole' gal over that big tom. Very aggressive! After that I began to apply more aggressive tactics, as well as aggressive calling, and stalking and was able to harvest my tom on the last day of a four day hunt. I was there during the first week of season, in the Lawrenceburg, Pulaski area and experienced a bit of harsh weather. One thing is for sure though, everyone I met was extremely graciuos and polite, and I can't wait till this fall and next spring. From my follow up with others in the area though I think next year I'll wait till the 2nd week of season.... stepped away for a little bit and now I realize I'm in the wrong state to post this, but here it is anyway, so if you get to Tn. I hope this will help. I'm just too old to re-type this over!
