turkey dog

Postby harvey1b » Fri May 13, 2005 1:54 pm

I was watching some hunter-porn on OLN a few weeks ago and they had a guy with what they called an Appalachian Turkey dog. I had never heard of such a thing. They were going for fall turkeys somewhere back east. The dog would get a scent and lead them to the flock. He would bust 'em up and they would sit down and call the turkeys back in and pick one off. The dog would hide under a camo cloth while it waited for a bird to be shot. I think it is illegal to hunt turkeys with dogs in the spring. Does anyone know more about this? It was really cool.

It is pretty cool....I've seen that on TV also and I've heard of people finding a flock and just running out in the middle of them then do a kee-kee run call....sooner or later the turkeys will come back together at that spot to regroup and thats when they shot them....I've never seen it done in the spring thou.

FYI, a lot of people do not realize it, but the Boykin Spaniel was originally bred to use turkey hunting. There are still people that use them for that and even a few articles online about how to train a boykin for turkey hunting. Here in Mississippi, we are unable to hunt turkey with dogs in any way.

I believe that breed of dog is from New York. I have read several articals about them in different mag's. There are hunting guide's out there that offer fall turkey hunting with a dog. Hope this could help ya.

Actually, the Boykin Spaniel is not from New York!!
It is a native of South Carolina. In fact, it was not only originally bred in South Carolina, but it is also the official State Dog of South Carolina.

Here is my mighty Turkey Dog I figured I would take a picture of her after I got home with my 2005 Utah Spring Gobbler.

Take Care,
