if you can make a trip to west tn. let me know when you can and i will be more than happy to let you in on some hunting with me. i live in jackson and hunt a 50 mile radius of here. i take off work after 25th of december until the season closes and all you have to do is head this way. during the week is best because we will have the whole bottom to ourselves most of the time. i would also check into the blind drawings next year in your area. there is some good hunting in middle tenn. also. but anyway i am a 46 year old duck hunter and i have hunted the bottoms around here for many years and would love to have you join in this season.
