    Turkey season is coming up in April down here in the Cherokee Lands of Tenasi.
    First, however, I will travel up to the York homestead, near Pall Mall, Tenasi for the big over-the-log shooting match there at Alvin York’s farm. That will be on March 25th. Good Doin’s!

      Yes, I’m looking forward to the spring turkey season, too. Our birds are roaming the river bottom, but will move into the woods about the first of March.

      And I’d love to be able to make it to the Alvin York shoot…

    Nice shot of Darrel.

      Yup, Darrel really looks the part. He’s spent a lot of time and effort researching his persona, too. Every once in a while I will see him moving along a hillside at a fair distance. That’s not too often, because he makes sure he keeps to the cover. But when he does you would swear it was 1763…
