I fall hunted one time, the harvest counts against your spring number so I don't anymore.
I think this was our last season for fall hunting btw.
I never heard of hunting turkeys with dogs before, Ithought you all was kidding.

Turkeydoghunter,
     What kind of dogs are you using to hunt turkeys?  I had a mixed breed bird dog that I trained to hunt birds (turkeys) but he became very sick with epilepsy and I had to do the unmentionable at only 4 years of age.  He did however hunt with my brother and I and broke flocks his first year out and the following year.  His final fall I didn't hunt turkeys because he was so messed up.  Having him to hunt with was extra special.

So all you would use the dog for is to break up the flock or is their more.

Jim this was my first fall with my dog....we didn't kill many turkeys...and he has a lot to learn...but sure was fun having him there....like a whole new ballgame...I haven't been that excited about turkey season in a long time...

Turkeyhunter,
     I lost jake about 3 years ago now and I so far have been unbale to replace him.  I've had the chance on 2 dogs, a fixed setter and a Boykin out of hunting stock, actually turkey hunters. I've read a good deal about the Boytels and they are supposed to be super.
 
Morgan,
     You are in for a treat when your dog breaks a flock for you and you get the bird.  I was so proud of him.  It was a bunch of work training Jake.  A lot of walking in the late summer to find turkeys and let him charge them and get crazy.  I actually taught him to bark on songbirds in the yard.  I'd run them out of cedars in the yard in the evenings as they were about to roost and chase after them myself like a fool acting excited and stupid I am sure to my neighbors. I never did really get him steady in the blind after the break, usually my brother or I would walk off a distance with him after the break.
