There are many community events associated with the hunt. On Friday before the hunt there is clay target shooting and a turkey shoot. This event is open to the public, and is a great way to check your sights on your turkey gun before opening day
Friday night will be a great time with the guides and hunter's dinner at the Hillcrest Country Club. There will be food available from 4:30-8:30 so that folks can come eat early and go roost birds, or come eat after they have put that big bird to roost. After the dinner, you can go out to Kathy's Tavern and hear some great tunes from Daryle Singletary. He will perform at Kathy's Friday Night, and at the Banquet Saturday night at Cardin Distributing. For more information, contact Kathy's Tavern at 931-363-9289.
On Saturday, the day of the hunt, Pulaski’s square is home to the 5K Turkey Run and Gobbler’s Gala, where arts and crafts, TWRA booths, games, calling contests, turkey check-in, live entertainment, and many other things will be happening.
There is a huge banquet and concert event on Saturday night of the hunt at Cardin Distributing in Pulaski where up to 1000 people will eat great local food and hear some of Nashville’s best entertainers like Daryle Singletary, Jeff Bates, andy Griggs, Rhett Akins, Kevin Blake Weldon, Gary Morris, the Lo Cash Cowboys, and Chris Hennessee grace the stage each year. This is a laid back family event that will be fun for the whole family. It’s an event you won’t want to miss. Tickets are $25 each and $40 per couple. This includes a great meal, free door prize chance, and a world class concert with some of Nashville's finest. To purchase tickets for the banquet/concert, click here.
