I did not know you had a turkey dog, very cool. You have him trained well to sit by demanding to be let into his kennel. The only one Vic would sit by is the kennel in the truck.
Did you get out turkey dogging a lot last fall?
If canines could chase all the turkeys off a piece of land there would be many turkey free parcels making many farmers very happy. However this is not the case. I find turkeys will move off about 500 yards or less when disturbed and go about their business. Coyotes and fox of which there are hundreds around here actively hunt turkeys year round in order to eat. Virtually every farm and home has at least one dog and few are kept restrained most roam around at will chasing whatever they please. The exceptions are the hunting dogs they are trained and kept close perhaps due to the fact they have more value and are frequently stolen.
In spite of all this canine activity turkeys remain no matter the season. So I doubt a trained turkey dog controlled by his master would have any affect on the turkey's whereabouts. If I were to have my dog accompany me in the spring he would be kept at heel and sit with me. On private property this would cause no problems for anyone except perhaps the trespasser because my dog would certainly find him and bark him out.
A turkey bowhunter should have the availability of a trained dog to help locate hit turkeys. Improperly arrowed turkeys are very hard to track and recover. A good dog would greatly simplify recovery.
