    When fly fishing is outlawed, only outlaws will fly fish.

    So talk me through this, locate the turkey and bust them up and then get in the middle and call them back together? I have read about someone that used this method, would love to hear how you hunt them - pretty dog.

    You have the basic idea. You head for a general area where you think the birds may be, and walk the ridges and trails. Most dogs range 100-200 yards. On a REAL lucky day, you may spot them crossing the road or in a field. The dog either scents them or spots them, and rushes the flock, a good dog will bark on the break. Once all the birds are off of the ground, you look for a strategic spot near the break site, and wait patiently, most times in the fall birds want to stay together in large family units. The wait could be anywhere from 1/2 hour to 3 hours, sometimes they flock up somewhere else, but on a good break, they will be scattered in every direction, and want to get back where they started from. A good dog will sit with you quietly while you wait for the birds to get back together, and while you are calling back and forth to the birds; some guys put their dogs in a burlap or cloth bag, my dog won;t go for that, so I cover her up with a camo blanket. Once a bird gets close enough, you shoot it, and let the dog loose again to pick it up for you (or even track it down if you make a bad shot).

    Great fun, I enjoy it as much as spring turkey hunting. Every bit as exciting, especially when you have a fall gobbler or bossy hen answering and coming to your calls. Name:  22219858_762833667250140_4768816954097791789_o.jpg
