|Here are some pictures of us hunting turkey
November 27, 2002.
Magnum is related to Zeke. Magnum is two and a half years old now (June '04).
They both come from the finest turkey dog lineage in the world - John & J.T. Byrnes kennel.

|There is so much misunderstanding when it comes
to turkey dogs and I guess it all comes from not knowing.
People need to understand that a turkey dog to a turkey hunter, is just like a bird dog to a bird hunter, or a lab to a duck hunter.
They are not in the group of dogs we consider running dogs, which I realize have disturbed many a hunter including myself.
Another thing that just came to mind is that not all turkey dogs bark when they flush.
And there are alot of good turkey dogs out there that don't bark, but will find and flush with the best of them.
It is just a big plus if they do bark, so that you know they are flushing turkeys.
A lot of times on a flush, you don't see any birds but your dog has barked,
then you can know that he flushed birds and set up to call them back.
