Tyler Wilson is the manager of Tumbling Creek Lodge, post office: Bucksnort, Tennessee. The town is just as bustling and metropolitan as the name suggests, with a little diner and a truckstop off I-40 the closest signs of civilization. This particular weekend Tyler is taking two gentlemen from North Carolina on a full-day quail hunt. He has supplied both guns and dogs. After a couple minutes of safety talk and a sincere assurance that he hates it when people pepper his dogs, he releases Amy and Buddy. Buddy, an English Setter, is madly running in circles, peeing, pooping and in total bliss. Amy the pointer is more reserved, prancing, sniffing and taking care of her bodily functions in relative seclusion. After a minute or so, Tyler blows his whistle and shouts "hunt 'em up."

...
"There's a point," Tyler says over his shoulder. "Wo now," he calmly tells her. Buddy, fifty yards past Amy, has gone into backup point, honoring his partner.
Tyler waves his hands, placing the hunters to either side. He knows they're not very experienced and he reminds them of low birds and which direction to swing and not swing the shotguns. They nod, and move slowly into the brush on his flanks. Tyler steps past Amy and slaps the grass with a short leather whip.
...
Tyler offers words of encouragement and the hunters share a frustrated laugh. Meantime, both dogs have taken up separate points on new birds. "We'll follow up those two later," he says, pointing toward the closest point. Amy is starting to sneak and is 'Wo'd' back by Tyler. He gestures to the hunters and they once again flank him and approach the pointer. As soon as Tyler's boots crunch the dry brush in front of the dog, the birds flush. Three launch away in a spread formation, offering each hunter a clear crossing shot. A puff of feathers indicates that Pat has placed a good shot. Buddy rushes toward the crash site as Brad's second shot rocks the bird but fails to bring it down.
Tyler's in a tizzy, ordering Amy to 'hunt dead!' while telling Pat to mark his bird. Meanwhile Buddy has vanished in the tall stuff sniffing the trail of another covey. Tyler congratulates both hunters on their improved shooting hoping to further raise their level of confidence. Amy proudly emerges from the brush and passes a cock quail to Tyler's waiting hand. After a few "atta girls" and a rub on the head, and Amy's off again.
By late morning, the shooting is hotter, the temperature warmer, and the bottled water tasting better. Tyler has put Amy and Buddy back in the box and collared up a German shorthair and pointer named Gert and Champ respectively. Champ is a pup and bumps a bird or two, but otherwise shows off the good training he's received from Tyler.
Interior Hunters relax in the comfortable lodge.
Lunch means a ride back to the Tumbling Creek Lodge for a home-cooked meal. A staff member cleans the birds, while Tyler goes to the kennel to swap out for the afternoon. From the dining room a quarter mile away, the dogs can be heard shouting in their canine language, 'Take me! Pick me! It's my turn!'

Tennessee Quail Hunting

Hunt and operations manager, Tyler Wilson has spent much of his life knee deep in some of the best trout waters east of the Mississippi. A native East Tennessean he enjoyed the wonderful fishing the Smokey Mountains had to offer. While attending Appalachian State University a quiet little college nestled in the mountains of Western North Carolina, he was surrounded by cold water streams and mountains teaming with grouse, and wild turkeys. Throughout his college career he dedicated himself to the sport of fly fishing and introducing others to the joys nature has to offer. It was a perfect fit for Tyler to join the team at Tumbling Creek, with his passion for bird dogs and his strong dedication to fly fishing he has brought a spark to the overall atmosphere.
