Well written. I already can't sleep. I love turkey season. It represents what's still good about our great nation. God bless those who give us this opportunity.

Great read! I absolutely do it because I "have" to. I am an addict. I would much rather be fishing 90% of the time. But, that 10% when it's good, it's awesome!

Hey, Ben stole my "season wrecker" phrase from the old days on TnTurkey.

He is a great writer though, and the answer to the question is YES!

Good read. I'm addicted.... It's a pursuit and an addiction. Can't wait now, it's only a few days...

Wish our paper would publish good reads like this!

I am convinced it is genetic, particular to the XY chromosome pattern. It is primeval, instinctive, and part of our internal mechanical gears that turn for survival.

As John Eldrege, "Wild at Heart", describes...“Deep in man’s heart are some fundamental questions that simply cannot be answered at the kitchen table. Who am I? What am I made of? What am I destined for?" I think we hunt and pursue the outdoors to help answer these questions, those that are afraid of these answers stay inside.

So I guess it is an addiction of pursuit for me.
