GON Writers Are The Real Deal
Donald Devereaux Jarrett is not only a good turkey writer, but he understands and knows what he is writing about. He wrote another great turkey article in the February issue of GON.
I have only met Donald briefly at the Unicoi call makers event. I wrote my own book about wild turkeys, and I have over six decades of studying their ways. I know enough about wild turkeys to know whether an author knows what he is writing about, or not.
Mr. Gay, I too know enough about having ears cleaned out from build-up (Feb. issue of Back Issue). You, too, know what you’re writing about.
Enclosed is my check for my renewal of GON.

Good To Hear From Some Of Our GON Family
I did not get to hunt very much this season because of my 91-year-old mother going down and me having to move them in with me and take care of them.
I only went a total of eight times. Saw deer every time. Good pre-season scouting put me in the right places. I killed two nice 8-pointers, my grandson got a nice 7-pointer, and my son got a nice 8-point, both of them while hunting with me.
Coyotes are definitely a problem and have a devastating impact on the fawns. We have looked at this over the last several years, and when we thin them out in an area, the fawn survival rate increases. I like to kill them all, but getting rid of female yotes is the best remedy.
We love the magazine. Keep up the good work.
